Hello, Peter

(This may be a repeat – original note reset to your home page. So here goes another attempt:)

I live in the U.S.(Massachusetts) and I am researching places that an American gold prospector passed through on his way from Melbourne to Spring Creek (Beechworth).
In August of 1853 he wrote in his journal that he was in “…Ovens Township…” and had stopped briefly to buy food supplies at the Gold Seekers Inn.
I have found that the Inn was in the settlement of Fifteen Mile Creek (FMC) which was later named Greta (G). My question is, Was FMC or G ever known to be “the Ovens Township” or in the Ovens District?
