Hi Mattse1,
Thanks for that. I hope the poster is still looking for the info. If you reply to posts in the comment box like I am here, then the person will get an email to alert them that someone replied to their query, also everyone can read what the query was, who wrote it and all other helpful info.

I will add the original post here. It was written by Mazalice in Aug 2014 who asked .. Looking for descendants of Thomas Morton & Rabina Oram and 2nd wife Mary Rockliff Evors. My link is Thomas & Rabina's son Thomas. He married Nancy Priestley in England, arrived in Perth 1841, was in Fiji somewhere between 1865 & 1875, died in Mackay Qld 1875. Love to hear from anyone with information on Thomas and/or his half brothers who emigrated to Australia & New Zealand.
