Dan Kelly, younger brother of Ned Kelly and one of the Kelly gang, is said to have died in the Glenrowan Inn fire of June 28,1880 as a 19-year-old. But when a man, who lived his life under the assumed name of James Ryan, walked into the Brisbane offices of the Sunday Truth in 1933 claiming to be the real life Dan Kelly, it unleashed questions that have remained unanswered to this day.

Let it be known that Dan Kelly did not die at Glenrowan. He lived until 1943. He married and had a daughter.

So the real truth will soon be known to all. An author who has written a Ned Kelly book will soon release the continuing story of the life of Dan Kelly. Yes, Dan did live on.Yes he did go to Africa. But he came back to Australia.

Dear Anonymous, this is most interesting and I look forward to reading the book. Thanks for letting us know. I wish you could leave your first name as I am so sick of talking to so many people named anonymous!

My mum knew him. Grew up in Brisbane and my grandpa was a barber there. She told me stories from my earliest youth of Dan. She also was a Kelly though denied any relationship to him. But I reckon she had her reasons. Dan was still alive when mum left Australia in the early 40's.

My late husband met Dan Kelly around 1945. He wrote the book 'Burnt to a Cinder, was I' about Dan's life after Glenrowan. I have boxes of research papers, emails, photos of Dan (not published). I would like a film made so we can set the record straight. Also Steve Hart photos etc.
I am posting under anonymous but will make contact if worthwhile!
