It's the right tree in FamilySearch but not sure about the facts, It has John's death 1884 Sowerby Bridge, Yorkshire and Thomas's death 1911 Victoria.

I am revisiting this topic hoping that I may have discovered further evidence that the John Wyatt who drowned Cairns 1907 is my connection bC1826 Glossop Derbyshire.
I believe he arrived 1863 om "Sunda" Maryborough Queensland.
There is a monument for him at McLeod St Pioneer Cemetery.
Doubt arises as to his age ie 80 instead of 60.
I need to establish if he is referred to in an article in the Brisbane Courier 2nd Dec 1885 might be him:
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/3453717

The article headed "Watsonville" may mention him .
I gather that this location is about 7 miles north west of Heberton.
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/3453717

Was Jack Wyatt in partnership with Bob Watson in the Royal Standard Claim?

I am hoping someone has further knowledge which will help me identify my John Wyatt.

I was previously advised that he might have been in partnership with Bob Watson and John O,Doherty.

With thanks
