PAGES FROM THE HISTORY OF SALT 2002

A combination of texts and images presented in the form of pages. The texts are taken from various sources including the book " From Weavers to Wapstraws." a Genealogical study of my family's history back to and beyond their immigration to Australia in 1836. The images are varied and include documentation of some of my past artwork.

James Kelly (c. 1785-1837) married Margaret Maxwell (c. 1787-1862) in about 1810. They had fifteen children. In 1840 the widowed Mrs. Kelly emigrated from her home in Gallowgate, Glasgow, Scotland to Australia. She and her children settled near Woodside, in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia.

I am one of her descendants.
