Anne Kelly's life I was born at Beveridge in November 1853

When we moved to Avenel I went to school there.

In October 1869 Ah Fook came to our house near Greta and he alledged that he was robbed by Ned Kelly. The charge was not proved and ned got off.

I married Alex Gunn on 9/4/1869 in the Catholic Church in Wangratta by Father George Gallen

We had a daughter Ellen who died soon after her birth in 1871, about the time when my dear husband was arrested by the police.

Ian Jones reported that on 2/1/1872 Const Flood escorted Ned Kelly's sister Annie from Greta to Benalla to give evidence in a case involving Andrew Johnson, and Phillip and James McIntosh and the thieft of my horse.

He says that we stopped on the way home and that Const Flood started an affair with me. At this time my husband, Alexander Gunn was in goal.

I died soon after on November 1872, two days after I gave birth to Const Flood's daughter. The child lived for about a year before she died.
