King TogeePrint Page
A headstone on the grave commemorates King Togee.
Togee was a big and powerful man, regarded as a great leader who lived with the Gamilaraay people at Butheroe during the 19th century. In his old age he was speared by a Gamilaraay warrior, Cuttabush, around the 1850s. He was taken to a shed on the Butheroe property, where he died. As a mark of respect the Nevell family, for whom he was working at the time, employed George Weatherley Junior to carve a headstone.
