Looking for John GRACE and Sarah Whitehead

Query by Graceqld

John Grace and Sarah Whitehead were married in Victoria in 1855. One of
their children James Grace is my Grandfather.He died 12 August 1916 at
Charters Towers,Qld. I know nothing of John Grace but suspect that the
family moved to Queensland in the 1860's. Any information about John
Grace would be appreciated and I may be able to help anyone looking
for information about James Grace's relations.

Elizabeth 1855 Fryers Creek Victoria
James 1857 Fryers Creek Victoria
Jane 1860 Fryers Creek Victoria
Charles Whitehead 1862 Fryers Creek Victoria
John 1865 Black Victoria

possibly another child Sarah Elizabeth 1858 from information below

I also found this
Victoria, Australia, Index to the Children's Registers of State Wards, 1850 -1893 about Cherles W Grace (reads Charles)
Name: Cherles W Grace
Birth Year: 1862
Birth Place: Victoria, Australia
ref Volume OS1 Page 349

also on same page
James b1857 same ref as Charles
Jane b1860 Ref OS2 277
Sarah E b1858 Ref OS2 277 (possibly Elizabeth or could be another child)

I wonder if parents have died and there is no one to look after the children, the image is on Ancestry.
