Kelly, James (1844–1904)

James Kelly left the Kapunda district of South Australia with his family for Germanton (Holbrook), New South Wales, about 1874 by bullock dray and horses. In 1879 he received a grant of land near Yerong Creek which he named 'Cambusdoon'.  As his sons married he gave them part of the estate.

When he died the homestead block was left to his wife. When she died it was sold and the money went to his daughters.
