2. Harry Meabry Oakley,second child of Edwin and Jane Oakley.
Harry Meabry Oakley was the second child and son born to Edwin Thomas Oakley and his wife, Jane Elizabeth Oakley. He was born at Shooters Hill,near Clive, in Salop, on January 1, 1863.
Harry was my great-grandfather, and I have a very large amount of information about him, including his very interesting journal, written in the from of a letter to a friend back in Wales, of his journey on the S.S Orient to Melbourne in 1887. Because of the large volume of information and photos that I wish to publish re. Harry in this blog, I will leave Harry's story for now and return to his siblings, returning to Harry when I finish the other children in his family.
