James McPHERSON, the Bushranger, known as The Wild Scotchman, came to Australia as a boy of 13 years. So much has been written about him, I won't go into further details, except to say he must have known, before he left Scotland, about another James McPHERSON, who, in the 1700s, translated the Ossian Poems, about which, also, a lot has already been written.
James McPHERSON named his first-born son - James Ossian McPHERSON. He was born at Cambridge Downs, Hughenden, 10 May 1882. He died in Cooktown Hospital, 13 February, 1911, aged 29.
Cause of Death:-- "Spear thrust to (Right) chest - Haemorrhage to (Right) Lung."
I imagine James Ossian McPHERSON used an alias, to try to avoid explanations about his father's notoriety.
