I'm researching the Orders family in Tasmania. My great grandfather was John Clarkson Orders, born 1897, Zeehan, Tasmania. He married a Esther Leala Bailey.
John's parents were Joseph Herbert Orders and Margaret Clarkson (Margaret was originally from Scotland). They were married in 1883, Maryborough, Queensland.
Joseph and Margaret had some children before they moved to Tasmania, then had more once they settled on the west coast of tasmania. Of the children, I know some names, but not sure if they are all correct... Joseph Herbert/Henry (born 1892) Elizabeth (born 1894) William (Bill) (born 1896) served in WW1 Barbara? Olivet? Nelly (not born in Tas) Madge (married a Maskell) (born 1911?)
Most of my great grandfather's siblings did not have children of their own. I think William had 1 child and Joseph had some. My great grandfather had 10!!
Esther Leala Bailey's parents were Edward (Ted) Bailey and Esther - not sure of her maiden name. They were born in Tasmania I think. They both died in Zeehan.
Their children I'm also unsure of, but the names I have are: Zelda (Fannie) Sylvia/Sylvie Loris/Laurel? John (Jack) Jimmy William (bill)
Quite a few of them died of a heart attack - scary!
Any help would be appreciated. Please contact me via the message board or my email.
