Nope, no charge for photos I don't think. Council reply follows=

Thank you for your email dated 12 June 2011, regarding Mr and Mrs William and Margaret Tedford.
 
Mr and Mrs Tedford can be researched on the Toowoomba Regional Council website (link below).  There is a headstone on Mr and Mrs Tedford's grave and I will forward a photograph in the next week.
 
Further information can be obtained from the Qld Government's, Department of Births, Deaths and Marriages, where birth and Death Certificates can be obtained.
 
Additionally, you can contact the Darling Downs Family History Society on 4634 7377 or on tddfms[at]yahoo.com.au.
 
Please feel free to contact me via return email or on 4688 6686, if you have any questions in relation to this matter.

Of course great speculation now as to who you are actually are & your relationship to my wife & her sisters. Is there any way I could have your actual email address.

I have been following 2 further leads. They both relate to Thomas Tedford, Sarah Morrow and their son John on the Golconda…fairly slim chances
From the Qld bdm, John died 1916. There were also several children of a John Tedford and an Ellen Ford, but it seems evident from sites like RootsWeb free pages – Gordon’s family tree – that those children were of the same generation as John from Golconda. They may be related.
Also on the Golconda was a Prudence Morrow, 24, who from the Qld bdm died in 1944 as Prudence Forsyth with parents William John Morrow and Mary Jane. She first married William Bole, as seen in Qld bdm and in: http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/1300935
Trove: The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864-1933) (about)< Tuesday 23 February 1869 > Page 1 of 8
MARRIAGES.
BOLE-MORROW.-On the 10th February, in Brisbane, by the Rev. Alex. Caldwell, Mr. William Bole, Ipswich Agricultural Reserve, formerly of Newtownbreda,  county Down, Ireland, to Miss Prudence Morrow, daughter of Mr. William Morrow, Saintfield, County Down Ir
Her 2nd marriage, from Qld bdm, was in 1897 to James Forsyth.
There is much about the family of a William John Morrow and Mary Jane Morrow? Bowman? on Blyths and Beyond at http://members.iinet.net.au/~rteirney/wga7.html It doesn’t include Prudence but does seem to be her family. They came from Killinchy in Down and lived in Gammie Swamp, Fassifern, Qld. I found pictures of a Morrow family in Gatton, without individual identification, on Picture QLD and Bonzle. They may be related to Sarah Morrow from the Golconda. I also found William, Thomas, Agnes and Prudence Morrow as pupils in Purga School Qld in 1880 and Debbie in 1965 at http://www.freewebs.com/purgamusic/localpurgahistory.htm
Do any of these people mean anything to anyone?

The 'Diocesan and Prerogative Marriage Licence Bonds Indexes, 1623 - 1866', on the National Archives of Ireland website, include a marriage in 1825 between Thomas Tedford and Abigail Leggatt, Diocese of Armagh:

The Thomas Tedford - Sarah Morrow marriage is in the same index:
