Jinnie (?–?)

This entry is from People Australia

According to verbal records taken at Cherbourg Aboriginal Reserve in 1933, William Conlon is listed as fathering two children with an Kullilli woman named Jinnie from Thargomindah. Many aboriginal groups in this area were later moved to the coastal reserve of Durundur. In 1904, the reserve was shifted to Barambah near Murgon.
