Stephen.J. Arnold commented
My family diaries state she was an orphan, very beautiful with many admirers, ran a refreshment room at Sunbury A quote from the diary refers to it; "I received a letter from Mother last Monday, all well — enclosed in it was a printed effusion of some rymster the subject being the adventures of the Maid of the Merry Jig -the name of the place Jane Summers lived at for some time on Sunbury, it is a most scandalous thing, enough to shock any virtuous mind to read, bad as Jane is, she doesn't deserve caluminating in such a manner . I wonder who composed it, I suppose one of her old rejected suitors" Her "father" married his servant girl and so displaced her from her room with him. (he was a railway contractor on the Keilor Line). She married Adelman (a "renegade Polish Jew") about 7th January 1860, he had two wives previously, both still living, and only married her to stop her testifying in an arson case. She was still alive, a letter was received from her, in Feb 1862, in London, after spending time in California. She having led a colourful life in Victoria probably fled to start a new life, she was very happy in London.
