Links to the KellyGang
First run in with the law Some think that I had worked with the KellyGang to swap horses and cattle backwards and foward from New South Wales to Victoria
Stringybark Creek Murders 26/10/1878 I was not involved Escape north AssCom Niciolson said that on 2/11/1878 we told the police about the movements of the KellyGang as they tried to cross the Murray River at the Murray Flats near the Baumgarten's. Nicolson came to see me. He told Royal Commission, ' I found the man was not then raving or anything of that kind. He evidently had been drinking, but it appeared to me to drown his fright, and when I saw him he was clean and cool and able to give a coherent account, and from the account he gave to me I had no doubt he had seen the outlaws.' (RC354) See also (Argus2/11/78) (Argus6/11/78) (Argus6/11/78) (Alexandra9/11/1878)(RC1859) (CHC) Euroa Robbery 10/12/1878 Did I help the boys at Faithful's creek? Jerilderie Robbery 10/2/1879 Was I around the place. It would have been great fun Later in 1879 Sup Sadleir noted 'The instructions under which I noted in sending Sgt Steele to Beechworth and Rats' Castle were received from Mr. Nicolson, who was then on the only certain clue of the Kellys. In fact it was absolutely certain that they had been at Margery's, and it was so important that police should be placed so as to intercept their probable route from Margery's back to their old haunts, that unless the information at Wangaratta were of a much more positive character, I should not have felt justified in stopping Segt Steele's party.' This was on about 2/11/1879 (RC16665) Glenrowan Siege 28/6/1880 Was I there? Later What happened to Gideon Margery's family
