Harry Taggart, Putty Darkinung Aborigines

1870c Harry Taggart is a member of Putty Darkinung Aborigines and works at Broke. He comes from Howes Valley at the top of the Macdonald River. His father is John, son of convict Charles Taggart. Harry’s grandson, Eric Taggart, is born 1918 and develops an association with the descendant of Aborigine Sophie Newman (Sophia) from the Hawkesbury-Hunter Ranges. Robert Mathews knows Sophie Newman from Wollombi when she is living at Sackville on Hawkesbury River. Sophie’s granddaughter is “Nana” Sales (nee Newman). Her son is Eddy (“Tomahawk” or “Tommy”) Sales, an advocate for his Darkinung people. (Ford 89, 284, 301).
