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.

I had a role in following up on the leads to the KellyGang. (RC8817)

I was in the Chiltern area at the time of the StringyBark Creek murders (Argus2/11/1878)

Euroa Robbery 10/12/1878 It is likely that I had been up looking around Mrs Byrnes home for the KellyGang (RC 1279)
