OAMARU MARRIAGE PLEASE.
« on: Sunday 01 November 15 12:08 GMT (UK) »
I would appreciate if someone who has a marriage CD could please do a lookup for me, probably Oamaru.

Groom -   William Arthur McRandall
Bride   -    Margaret Watson.  (b1931) (Peggy).

This marriage would be before 1949, as she is in the Oamaru electoral roll for that year, states married, but her husband is not on the Roll.  Perhaps he died, or maybe they divorced, but she did later remarry to a Clifford Carl Delvental!

Thank You
Jeanne 😃

Thanks very much for your replies.  I think that 1926 death may possibly be her 1st husband's  father, or even grandfather, as Margaret was born 1925/1926.  :)

Last night I had a communication from her son's friend in Aust. via Ancestry, where I have her in my private tree, but she had came up in a search result. (He told me her son is just beginning on his family research, so I'm trying to get some more detail to add) - hence my enquiry. She's been in the too hard basket for a while! 

I don't have a date for her Oamaru 1925/1926 NZ birth, although I do know who her parents were, nor do I have a record of either of her marriages, most of what I have on her is from NZ Electoral Rolls and Australian info.  She was living in Auckland by 1963,  as married, and her Delvental husband at the same address., also 1973 In Auckland.  By 1980 they were living in Perth, Aust.

I'm hoping that maybe her son may have marriage details for his parents, if not, he may not know it was a second marriage for Margaret, but until I hear back from him, I won't know just exactly what info he already has.  And I can then take it further from there.  So, hopefully looking forward to his email.

Thanks
Much appreciation
Jeanne 😃

Minniehaha - I'm a nutcase!   ;D

2007/25708   McRandall   William Arthur Lawrence   21/10/1926   81Y

Was right in front of me wasn't it! Just didn't register that 1st set of numbers was actually a year reference.  And I thought date of death - 21/10/1926 at 81 yrs old made for her marrying a ghost!

I'd better go and have a cuppa a a wee lie down!  Been watching too much rugby in the wee small hours!

Thanks again
Jeanne 😄
