i can only speculate. robert raines was a bully and made a name for himself as such. one day in 1858 it cought up with him when john jackson got tired of him picking fights and in the fight jackson stuck a large knife into roberts skull(several times) killing him. at the time dangerfield was about 8 yrs old. emmaline was always a very stern/strick person and usually took command of a situation but was always helpful. she probably took the kids in beause matilda already had a lot of kids to take care off and wanted to help.
