Yvonne Clayton

Yvonne Clayton was born in Leeton. As a child she became one of the stolen generation when taken to a girls home in Cootamundra. She has been a resident of Fairfield for over 25 years.

... I think it would have been about 18 months I went and asked how many other Koori families were there in the area. And at the time — this was back in ’81 ’82, maybe ’82 going onto ’83, early ’83 — it would have been about 45 spread all over Bonnyrigg and that surprised me.
