Thomas Joseph was my great grandfather. He became a miner and engineer, was involved in the establishment of some mines in the Derby and Queenstown area of Tasmania, married Susan Barnet, a granddaughter of Thomas Salmon, the first settler to charter and sail his own ship to Tasmania in 1812.

Following the death of Susan at a young age of 28 he moved with his son (my grandfather) to Victoria in 1904 to establish the state coal mines at Wonthaggi. He was a shift foreman/engineer there and later became a director of the Wonthaggi Hospital. He died in 1942.
