Links to the KellyGang
Early Years In 1877 I investigated Samuel Kennedy and Studders and the Baumgartens. Kennedy and William Baumgarten were convicted for stealing those horses from Greta. I also found out that the Ned and Dan Kelly-were connected with the larceny of those horses but we could not prove it. (RC8813) Photograph Fitzpatrick Incident 15/04/1878 I was mentioned by the KellyGang in the Cameron letter as being a person who Const Fitzpatrick suggested might come to arrest Dan Kelly after the shooting.
