The Story Behind a Barcoo Grave and Headstone, William Lees , single work column
An article on the short life of Richard Wellford who came to Australia in 1863. He and a friend, William Cole, travelled from Sydney to Rockhampton and then west to work on Rule and Lacey's station. The two then split up to work and later built a slab hut on their holding near the Barcoo River beside a waterhole used for fishing by the Indigenous People. Welford went droving and made friends with 'Kangaroo', a former native blacktracker, and brought him back to the station. When Welford and a stockman were murdered, Kangaroo was blamed and a punitive party organised. The local Indigenous People were slaughtered and much later 'Kangaroo' was also killed.
