Date: 1833
Place: Dungog
Source: The Wingham Chronicle 10 August 1943
Details: Harking back to Hannas store, the commodities therein, although probably of limited quantity and range, proved a source of attraction to the blacks and a raid was made on the premises during the darkness of a July night in 1833. Entrance to the premises was effected by the simple process of lifting the roof off, which, being made of bark, offered no serious obstacle to the marauders. They got away with several bags of flour, a musket, two axes and a number of blankets and bolts of winsey. A hue and cry was raised next day and two constables succeeded in effecting the arrest of Billy Foster, Cocky and Tommys Martha. They were brought for trial but managed to escape from the lock up and were never seen afterwards. A reward of 2 pounds was offered by the authorities for their apprehension

Combo with his shirt enclosing the letter fastened upon his head, made his start from a point near Mr. Walkers slaughter house. He had successfully crossed the main current when the shirt fell into the water. He instantly recovered it, but afterwards seemed, by his actions to have no mastery over himself. And after being borne along till he was between the mill and the opposite bank he shouted out something that could not be heard and finally sank

Item: 183478
Surname: Corroboree (Indigenous)
First Name: -
Ship: -
Date: c. 1842
Place: Dungog
Source: Dungog Chronicle 27 January 1899
Details: I remember in particular there was a big gum that grew at the corner of Brown and Dowling Streets, which stood long after all the other trees had been cut down. Close to that big gum one day I saw two blackfellows fighting, Crandin Joe and Jerry were struggling to decide which had the better right to claim Maria, a black gin. Maria was seated at the foot of the tree awaiting the issue of the contest. While the blacks were fighting Ruggy Joe rode up on his old stock horse Bally, and dismounting, sat down to watch the melee. Instantly the gin took charge of the horse, mounted him and started off at a good pace up the road towards Cairnsmore. Ruggy followed her ou foot, while the two blacks stood amazed. I suppose there are few if any blacks left in Dungog now. A good many years ago there was a cobon cor roboree on Burnt Gully Creek, when there were assembled blacks from Gloucester, the Allyn, the Paterson, and the Upper Hunter.
