Biography contributed by Chris Buckley

Tom was the sixth of ten children of Bernard McLean (born 1848 in County Antrim, Ireland) and Mary Ann Orr (born 1850 in County Down, Ireland). Bernard and Mary Ann - who had arrived in Maryborough in 1860 -  were in Maryborough, QLD when they married in 1871 and joined the Gympie and Palmer gold rushes, making many trips to and from Mount Perry. In 1876 three of their children died within a few hours from Diptheria at Wolco Homestead. Bernard died in 1892 and Mary Ann in 1924.

Tom was a Miner in Maryborough, QLD when he enlisted in Brisbane in the AIF. He was a Private and Corporal (Service No:9527) with 1st Australian General Hospital and 4th Field Ambulance. He was hospitalised on several occasions with Influenza, and was Discharged in 1919. Tom returned to the Sunshine Coast and was a Miner when he died in 1947.
