Possible marriages in Qld:

26 May 1891/C1754 Cairns John - Legg Annie
7 May 1892/C0430 Cairns John - Bradfoot Marion

Ruling out the ones born in Australia and Ireland and the ones with parents who don't fit it seems there are only two left:

Death 27 Apr 1911/C0639 Cairns John - - ?

Age does not fit for this one either:

Death 16 Jun 1901/C0679 Cairns John - -

The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864-1933) - Saturday 3 August 1901 p.4
CAIRNS.-On the 16th June, at Cairns, John Cairns, beloved husband of Margaret Wylie Cairns, aged 52 years.

There seems to be too many marriages and not enough deaths for John. :2fun:
