Mac `Jowely` Print Page Print this page

Memorial erected late 20th century at the grave of  Mac 'Jowely"  also known as  ‘Black Peter McGinnis'.

Mac ‘Jowley’ was reputedly a survivor of a massacre at Lake Corrong and ‘sole survivor of the Yarrikuluk clan’ of the Wotjobaluk. His Aboriginal name was lost when his parents died and so he took the name of his guardian Peter McGinnis for whom he worked as a sheep tracker and shearer and later lived at Brim. He died in 1911.
