Missionary Matthews takes koorie people to a mission station

The missionary Matthews, with the approval of the NSW State Government, rounds up Koori people from La Perouse and Georges River and takes them to his mission station Maloga on the Murray River. Goodall and Cadzow, p. 113. The people include Ellen (Biddy Giles’s daughter). Eventually she returns with her family to live in Kangaroo Valley and by 1910 they are living near Botany. About this time they move upriver to camp and later buy land on the lower Salt Pan Creek where it flows into the Georges Creek. Goodall and Cadzow, Rivers and Resilience, 114 -115
