He was never brave. In his miserable career he killed (that we know of) two women who mistakenly married him, and four children, one of whom was a baby. Even in the ascribed killings like the one in a South African mining area, the victim was shot from behind. Let's face it, Ned Kelly had more grit than this creep.

My great grandma had more Guts than Deemng, but then again she had 6 kids on the move following the railway with bullock teams so I guess she had to.

Possibly 'Jacobs' from Canada (Cardiff Times 18th April 1892)
An anonymous witness claimed to have been an acquaintance of Jacobs in 1882 who claimed he had a letter from a 'fast' woman called Eddowes.
Jacobs also claimed to have enticed away a girl called Kelly.
When asked what happened to them the witness was told they had 'gone up Whitechapel way'
Against this is the witness was apparently shown Deeming's likeness and said he did not resemble the man he knew as Jacobs.
Also there is no evidence Deeming was ever in Canada.
Probable hoax?
