I am trying to locate any info on the 'Oakes' family, specifically Douglas Cosby Oakes and wife Helen Jessie Oakes & family who resided on the 'Maylands' property in Muttaburra in the mid 1930's and onwards.
The QLD electoral rolls show the Oakes family as being at this location. Douglas Cosby's father is a Douglas Champ Oakes who resided in the Macleay River in NSW.
The 'Oakes' family had farms/land in the Macleay River when Douglas Cosby would have been growing up. Douglas Cosby has 2 other brothers; Douglas Sholto Oakes and Norman leslie Oakes.
I am trying to find any info about Douglas Cosby Oakes & his family and their lives within this region.
Any help or info would be so greatly appreciated.
