This orphan has been claimed by: Phillip Berechree

John Orr's mother Agnes Agnew married Charles Brakey (AKA Brackey) on 3rd June 1852 at St George's in Battery Point. They went on to have 10 children (from whom I am descended) and lived in Circular Head. John appears to have been part of the family and took the Brakey name. He was killed by a tree fall aged 61 when he was prospecting inland from Wynyard. The event was reported in the North Western Advocate and Emu Bay Times 2 February 1906.
