Links to the KellyGang

Early Years I was born in 1858

There was some thought that I was Joe Byrne's girl. I got a job as a dress maker in Beechworth.

Stringybark Creek Murders 26/10/1878 Eventually after the KellyGang had tried to cross the River Murray they came back through our place and I was able to see Joe Byrne for a few minutes. He was tired but well and happy to see me. Jerilderie Robbery 10/2/1879 After the robbery Aaron helped Sup Hare with a search party watching Mrs Byrne's place. After this Mrs Byrne suspected Aaron of being a police agent and she broke off the relationship between Aaron and her daughter Catherine. Aaron retaliated by taking Catherine's horse back and that made Mrs Byrne even more upset. She even threatened that she would get the KellyGang to shoot him. Later she charged Aaron with stealing the horse but he was finally acquitted (RC13165) Death of Aaron Sherritt 26/6/1880 Poor Aaron. He made too many enemies Royal Commission I was not called to give evidence Later Years I did not marry

I died in 1932
