I know that my GGG grandmother Jinnie was the last full blooded aboriginal woman in the Gunnedah area. She had a child named Maggie or Margaret to an Irishman named Eugene Griffin. I have read the history of the Red Kangaroo which is fantastic! Anyone out there also connected with Jinnie or Margaret?

About Lauren
I grew up in Houston, Texas. I grew up with an amazing family, and have wonderful memories of my life in Houston. I have wonderful parents: Bill and Liz Griffin, and the best siblings: Alex, Bill, and Kelly. I also want to mention my Step-mother Judy, who was an absolutely amazing woman and full of life. I went to The Kinkaid School from Kindergarden thru my Senior year. I was huge into gymnastics and cheerleading, and I always dreamed of cheerleading in college (well, that never came true but not for lack of trying). I moved to Austin in August 2001 and attended the University of Texas where I graduated with a B.A. in Studio Art with a Specialization in Photography. I also have my M.B.A. from the University of Phoenix. Enough about my past, I am currently still living in fabulous Austin, Texas with my amazing fiancee David Chatfield and my most amazing son Connor Chatfield. I absolutely love being a mom.
My favorite things: FOOTBALL!! I love football, both college and pro. My favorite teams are University of Texas Longhorns, The Houston Texans, and The Chicago Bears. I also love reading (I read anything and everything), hanging out with David and Connor, swimming (anything that is outside and by a body of water), playing golf (which I am horrible at), watching any kind of dance show (I wish I could dance), celebrating all holidays, and watching Crime Shows.
My unfavorite things: Baseball (do not really care for it), flying (used to love to fly but now have a fear of it), running (but I still run anyway), tomatoes (hate them!), and not being able to see my family in Houston all the time. I love y'all!!
About David
The places I grew up were Indonesia, Australia and the US. Spending the majority of my youth overseas was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I wouldn't of had it any other way. My family consists of my awesome parents Alan & Teri, and my three unique brothers Andy, Jonny & Tommy. Growing up, I attended more schools than I can count on both hands. I did attend four different high schools (Ocean Reef, Kepner, JIS & Cinco Ranch). Since about 8th grade I have been very into photography, and for the longest time I wanted to be the next Ansel Adams and work for National Geographic.
In the summer of 2002, I left our family home in Katy, Texas for college in College Station. In December of 2006, I moved up to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and finished my bachelor's degree in Business Administration. After college, I moved back to Houston to start my career. I ended up working for a national photography company specializing in studio family portraiture. In the fall of 2009 I decided I wanted a change and transferred to Austin, TX. I am still in Austin with my beautiful fiancťe, Lauren Griffin, and our amazing, but mischievous, son Connor. I still can't believe I'm a dad.
My favorite things - Nebraska football, collage football then NFL football in that order. My favorite teams are the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers, Houston Texans, and the Miami Dolphins. I also like video games, bbq'n, and spending family time with Lauren and Connor. I also enjoy working on cars/trucks, camping and home projects.
Dislikes - For the most part basketball, baseball, the Oklahoma sooners & the NE Patriots.
How we met
The very first time Lauren and I met was in the fall of 2009. Lauren had come in for an interview for a full time position with the photography company I worked for. I sat in on the interview with my manager and regional manager at the time. I remember thinking after she had left, "Why can't I find a girl like that?". I was disappointed she didn't get the job at that time due to an already planned vacation during the company's blackout dates.
Then, about 9 months later, the studio was short staffed again, and the company hired her on without the new manager at the time conducting her own interview of Lauren. When new people started with the company, I was friendly towards them but usually didn't talk a whole lot to them. Lauren had just about enough of that, and on the first day that we had to close the store together she was determined to get me to open up and talk to her. She said "You are going to talk to me, and if not I will talk enough for the both of us". From then on we became close friends. Over the next few months we started to talk and joke around at work more and more. When the studio was slow, we'd watch movies or tv shows on my phone.
We started talking more and more outside of work through text messaging. We had gone out with our fellow coworkers in group settings a couple times. Then came the Christmas season at our studio where we worked an insane amount of hours together. She would always bring me coffee or red bull in the morning. After our shifts, we started to go out more and more, just the two of us. When we weren't working together or hanging out outside work, we would text each other constantly. I remember one night after a long day of work Lauren said she was gonna stay up at work after she clocked out to do one of her online exams for school because she could get a better WiFi connection up there. I really didn't want to leave her up there at work alone and didn't want to go home so I told her I would help her with the exam. By the time the exam was done, she had never had that much fun taking a test because we joked around and had fun with it.
The rest of that Christmas season we hung out after work almost every night going out for drinks, going to movies or getting something to eat. She invited me out with her that New Years Eve to accompany her to a couple of her friends New Years Eve parties. Not too long after that, we started dating.

How we got engaged
Lauren and I got engaged 10 days after our son Connor was born on the night of December 20th, 2011. Lauren had gone upstairs to lay down while I had Connor with me downstairs. After about 10 minutes I decided that I didn't want to go another day without being engaged to the love of my life. I looked around and found some ribbon string. I had originally planned on tying the engagement ring to the string and place it around Connor's neck. But it didn't really look right so i tied the ring around one of his little wrists. I carried sleeping Connor upstairs and walked around to Lauren on her side of the bed. I got down on one knee and handed our sleepy baby to his mother while telling Lauren how much she means to me and how I wanted us to spend our lives together. She hadn't noticed the ring around Connor's wrist until after I had finished talking and then her eyes got big when she noticed the ring. I took it off our son's wrist and asked Lauren if she would marry me and she said yes. Then I placed the ring on her finger and we kissed. She wasn't expecting a proposal so soon after our son was born and I was able to completely surprise her with it.

Robertson Mail (NSW : Friday 6 September 1929)
CHRISTENED IN THE SADDLE.
When she was 14 years of age, Mrs. Mary Jane Cain, of BurraBee Dee Mission Station, Coonabarabran, who died recently at the age of 85 years, was taken in to Mudgee to be christened. The priest had left the town, but was overtaken on the road between Mudgee and Coonabarabran, and there, with the girl sitting in her saddle, the rite was performed. Among Mrs. Cain's vivid recollections, was that of the rush to the Ophir goldfields. At the time, she often said, the big squatters were supplanting black labor with Chinese, but with the gold discovery the Celes- tials decamped, leaving the flocks they were shepherding to the mercy of the dingoes. Serious losses soon followed, and, in desperation, the squatters went cap in hand to the blacks, and induced them to come to the rescue. Thereafter sheep-owners steered clear of Chinese labor.

Biography
Mary Jane was the daughter of Jinnie Griffin a full blooded aboriginal woman and Irishman Eugene Griffin. She was born in 1844 on Toorawandi Station. After a brief marriage to James Budsworth, Mary Jane married head stockman George William Cain in 1865.
Much of what is known about the life of Mary Jane Cain was recorded in oral history interviews conducted by Margaret Somerville with four of her descendents‚t Robinson and Maureen Sulter. Somerville described Mary as "the woman who straddles two eras of history‚een two worlds of such profound difference, and she gives her people the strength to move forward. 'We gotta make it good for ourselves to go forward, the people say. How can I move across this space between Nganyinytja and me?'. After the death of her mother, Jinnie Griffin, in 1882, Mary became the leader of her community and was known to everyone as "Queenie" Cain.
Mary Jane Cain petitioned the government and as a result Burra Bee Dee Aboriginal Reserve (no. 47521) was gazetted on 21 February 1912, it included a small parcel of land at Forky Mountain that had already been granted to Mary and her family by Queen Victoria.
Mary Jane Cain died at Burra Bee Dee, Coonabarabran, NSW on 29 July 1929 aged 85.
Language
Mary Jane Cain spoke a local indigenous language, possibly Gamilaraay, and a manuscript compiled by Mary is held at the State Library of New South Wales containing wordlists of place names and the natural environment.

Mary Jane Cain, the daughter of Jinnie and Eugene Griffin, was born at Toorawindi in 1844. She grew to become a shepherd and eventually took on the role of ‚r mother Jinnie had been a consort of King Cuttabush (refer to Section 2.1) and it has been assumed that she carried some authority from this relationship. She clearly held a high level of personal authority to whom ‚d to. A very capable woman Mary arranged a landholding at Forky Mountain for herself and her family. This place became a refuge and Aboriginal people came there from all over the northwest392. She died in Coonabarabran in 1929393, an article in the Coonabarabran Times describing the high regard in which she was held throughout the region:
"Mrs Cain was known and loved by all from a very great distance around this district and outside it, and a word against her, had anyone been foolish enough to utter it, would have evoked the undying hostility of the oldest and most respected families of the North Western slopes and Central West. Many of today‚r fondled by her in their young days and entertain feelings of fierce and belligerent affection it would be good not to challenge."

HISTORY
The first European record of the Aboriginal people of the district comes from the journals of John Oxley who passed through in August 1818. Oxley, apparently depressed by the difficulty of his passage through ‚e natives‚cinity unheeded and unheeding‚
As squatters began to move into the country from the 1830s, starting a struggle for resources, tensions began to be recorded. Connor recounts a series of incidents in 1837 that led to a punitive expedition by the NSW Mounted Police. Many of the first European settlers in the region were assigned convicts who worked as shepherds and labourers for the squatters. Convicts were sent with flocks of sheep beyond the limits of the colony such as those surrounding the Warrumbungle Mountains. Convicts and ex-convicts were in many cases the first Europeans with whom Aboriginal people had substantial contact.
Colonial governments encouraged assignment of convicts as it was a far cheaper method of keeping them than maintaining them in penitentiaries or on road gangs. In 1837 it cost £17 per year to keep a convict on a chain gang. A convict on assignment cost £4.48 Landholders reaped the benefit of the cheap labour force provided by assigned convicts to build up their fortunes.
In her account of the Aboriginal people of Coonabarabran Somerville quoted from Police Sergeant Ewing‚e recordings include an account of a battle between the local Aboriginal people and a raiding party from the area now known as Cassilis. The raiding party was chased by the men of the local group to caves above the present day Coonabarabran and slaughtered. This story contains many elements of what is considered to be the traditional pattern of warfare between Aboriginal groups, the aim of which was ‚r neighbouring groups‚
Ewing recorded other reminiscences of Aboriginal people, including accounts of raiding parties that were later used by author Ion Idress in developing works of historical fiction such as The Red Chief of the Gunnedah Tribe. Ewing‚e Coonabarabran group:
They are numerous that Coonabarabran tribe and have their camps large ones miles apart ‚t there are small parties camped in numerous places ‚n the mountains there Warrumbungles there are many many caves ‚be could fill ‚y before he could get up to you. ‚d parties of women and children leave camp to go fishing ‚d hunting small game.
Kamilaroi (Gamilaraay) women were being abducted by stockmen and this probably led Kamilaroi men to kill Frederick Harrington in June at Charles Purcell‚. On 21 September Lieutenant George Cobban of the 50th Regiment, commanding the Hunter River division of the Mounted Police, was ordered to look for Harrington‚
During the same period Aboriginal people began to work on the properties being developed by the settlers. Mary Cain, who was born at Toorawindi in 1844, recalled that, during the gold rushes of the 1850s, European workers left the pastoral stations to head to the goldfields. She noted that James Orr and Robert Campbell of Borah station tried labour from India. This was unsuccessful and Orr later employed Chinese workers. These were more successful but Aboriginal people ‚
Ebenezer Orr leased a number of properties around Yaminbah Creek. He readily employed Aboriginal people and particularly favoured women whom he dressed in red flannel. He lived with at least two of these shepherdesses in a house he built on Yaminba Creek.
Mary Cain was born amidst the apparent frontier chaos of the 1840s. She has been described as a ‚f Coonabarabran. She was born to Jinnie and Eugene Griffin and grew up to be a shepherd. Jinnie was described by Sergeant Ewing as ‚acks, a small scattered wandering band that is still represented at Burrabeedee Mission Station‚
Mary married George Cain, a shearer, and by 1892 was living with George and their five children at Forky Mountain north of Coonabarabran. She had agitated for recognition of ownership of the 400 acres of land that she and George had taken up and were developing as a farm. Forked Mountain Station was gazetted on 6 February 1892.
Mary Jane Cain wrote to Queen Victoria on numerous occasions requesting that the land was to be granted to her. Queen Victoria granted that Burra Bee Dee or part thereof be handed to Mary Jane Cain and Queen Victoria requested that Mary Jane was to manage the property and was required to provide a place for the Dark people to live on
The story of Burrabeedee is quite a different one from the usual story of Aboriginal people being forced into reserves and missions and governed by officialdom beyond their control. In Mary Jane‚d the district when they heard ‚
Mary Cain not only founded Burrabeedee but also was an influential and respected citizen of Coonabarabran from whom other civic leaders sought advice. Burrabeedee has stood as an early example of Aboriginal people taking responsibility for their own wellbeing within a colonial economy.
After World War I revocation of Aboriginal farms commenced and there was a ‚on of taking Aboriginal children from their families‚
Burrabeedee was subsumed into the government controlled welfare system and the buildings eventually sold off .
A number of Aboriginal men from the district had served in the Australian Imperial Force in World War I. These included Tommy Fuller of Baradine who was wounded at Passchendaele in 1917 and Bill Chatfield who served in the Light Horse.
During the 1950s the official policy of governments changed from protection to assimilation. Changes in administration encouraged the residents of Burrabeedee to move into Coonabarabran.
In 1954 the school at Burrabeedee closed down and over succeeding years the settlement was gradually dismantled by the government. Some houses and the school were sold off and moved on to various properties around Coonabarabran.
An ‚, Namoi and White Streets. The church from Burrabeedee was relocated to the new Aboriginal housing project in Coonabarabran known as Gunnedah Hill.
Not all Aboriginal people lived at Burrabeedee. Many families lived and worked in the townships of the shire, including Baradine and Coonabarabran. Somerville recounted the recollections of some of these people who experienced life on the fringes of the community. Others lived within the township of Coonabarabran.
