Links to the KellyGang

Before the Glenrowan siege I was the telegraph manager at Beechworth Siege at Glenrowan

I accompanied Mr Foster to investigate Aaron Sherritt's death (RC13363)

There is no telegraph office at Glenrowan and I,on hearing that the KellyGang had broken out there, proceeded with the Beechworth detachment of police by train on Monday morning, and on arrival had the wires cut, and connected with a small pocket telegraph instrument, thereby Glenrowan in telegraphic communication with the city.
