Hello Simon.

William Wimmera was the son of this aboriginal women who was murdered.

In 1846, following reports of sheep stealing, white settlers by the Wimmera River  launched an attack on the campsite of the local Wotjobaluk  people. During the conflict a woman was shot dead and her child,  a boy of about six , was later found huddled by her body. 

Leading the attack was Horatio Ellerman, who owned a large station in the area. He  had named the property Antwerp, in memory of his Belgian birthplace. Rumour had it that Ellerman himself  had fired the fatal shot.  Instead of returning the child to his people, Ellerman took the little boy home and named him William Wimmera. William later referred to the squatter as ‘my master’ so presumably his position at Antwerp  was that of a servant.

Here is a picture of him below...

For those who cannot see the picture OI suggest you try to join this interesting forum.

His descendants claimed Ellerman, pictured below, was haunted by the shooting of the woman.

Hello Simon

The location of the now demolished house sat on spot were an aboriginal women was murdered by early settlers in a grove of trees. Some versions of story says she had a child?

Horatio (you radiate sunshine and light)burn Ellerman, an early settler who established Antwerp Station, suggested the site where the mission station was established rather than the three sites suggested by the Government. The site selected was known as "Banji bunag", and had traditional meaning for the Wotjobaluk, being a corroboree ground according to elder Uncle Jack Kennedy, and also contained the grave for an Aboriginal woman shot dead, the mother of William Wimmera. That mission is nearby.

Perhaps an admission of guilt by Horatio (you radiate sunshine and light)burn Ellerman?

The area was first settled by Europeans in 1846, when George Shaw and Horatio Ellerman applied for 130,000 acres (530 km2) for sheep grazing. Ellerman named the area after his birthplace, the Belgian city of Antwerp. However at first when Aborigines not understanding ownership hunted sheep for food.

Landholders had retaliated by killing Aborigines.In 1858 two Moravian missionaries, Reverend Friedrich Hagenauer and Reverend Spieseke, arrived in the area. By 1859 they had built a church, and in 1860 they baptised their first Aborigine. But by then the local aboriginal population was decimated. It is said the husband of the murdered aboriginal women put a curse of those who defiled the murder site to see through the eyes of victim as a reminder of the callous act.

The site of the grove of trees became farm and a house built over the site where the murder took place.

What a Post KANACKI, it sounds like there could be a continuation, but in another direction.

If there is an evil presence KANACKI it may emanate below the ground, under the house waiting to invade any house built in place of the old one.

This really warrants "physical investigation" KANACKI to once and for all find and eradicate the evil presence; also does someone lye buried beneath the house?

Another sad indictment of many males in our society, who believe that they have a right to take what they want by any measure.

No empathy here KANACKI.

It can be endless KANACKI, unless people like us intervene and guide them to their new home.

Hi KANACKI, unfortunately humans have not evolved, in the areas that matter, since they came out of the caves many millennia ago.

Empathy is one area that while some have it, the ones that decide do not.

This year is not yet over KANACKI and there will be more "small problems" across the globe that will add to the greater one, which is China. Make no mistake, there is a great deal reliant on the USA presidential election, even if it is allowed to take place.

The pub was originally a country store built in 1900 for a stone that never really developed. Eventually with telegraph the pub developed. Today the pub is road stop for tourist who leave items behind at the bar. Couple of years ago due to a bet a women left her bra at the bar. Today hundreds of bras and business cards surround the bars as tokens of tourists visits. I wonder what Sarah the resident ghost would think?

There is a ghost haunting a roadhouse pub hundreds of miles from anywhere in Outback Northern Territory.

The history of the pub is a gem, too. Dating back to 1930, it was originally built by Bill and Henrietta Pierce. Since then it has been the backdrop for numerous shootings, murders, and cattle stampedes.

Station owners have threatened to burn the place down and many a brawl has taken place behind closed doors. And on the dusty streets outside!

Today, there are no longer any shootouts or murders that take place there. Instead, gun fights have been exchanged for ghost stories thanks to the unusual goings-on at night. It is thought there is a ghost called Sarah who was murdered by her husband after having an affair with the gardener – so keep your eyes and ears peeled.

to be continued....
