Great-grandparents, John Thomas (born 1830) and wife Mary Anne nee Owens (born 1833) arrived in WA from Wales aboard the Hamila Mitchell. They moved to Northampton where John was recruited to manage the lead mines. They subsequently bought Balline Station in Northampton and settled into the farming community. John died in 1895 and Mary in 1908. Both are buried in the Northampton historical section of the cemetery. Seeking information and photographs. Contact: Rona Lee, 0428 830 474.
