April A-Z Challenge: Q is for mcQUEEN
Q is for mcQUEEN Thomas James Jonathon, my Great Great Grandfather. Thomas is a bit of a mystery to me – one of my brickwalls, requiring further research. He was born in 1824 in Jamaica. It’s probable that his father was in the West Indies from Scotland, on military deployment.
Thomas married JANET YOUNG in Launceston on October 26 1844. Janet was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Thomas was a painter and glazier
Thomas and Janet had 10 children over a period of 18 years. Thomas died in 1863, in Fitzroy, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria. At the time of his death the youngest child was a newborn of just a few weeks.
