I'm glad you've tried the Argus, Linda - that was a likely spot. Pam
is looking up the Geelong Advertiser. I suspect that Stewart wrote his
note back in the 1970s when there may have been some local memory of
the event still surviving - someone who vaguely remembered the story
without having details. After all, it looks as if the child's sisters
lived until the 1920s. but there's a bigger time gap now.

Best wishes
