Hi Annie,
Well, we have located Williams sister Isabella who arrived with him on the Strathnaver in 1874.
Unfortunately the story is not a happy one.
Isabella married Reginald McGrane, a miner, in Aorere (now Collingwood) in Golden Bay NZ in 1881.
she was 18 at the time.
She died there in 1883 and is buried in the old settler cemetery in Collingwood. There is a child buried with her.
Williams daughter born in 1883 was, I speculate, named after her.

On a happier note we found Margaret's sisters, Mary and Elizabeth Casey, arrived with brothers Peter and John and Mary's infant son William in Nelson, NZ in 1883.
They were on the ship "Westland"
Peter Casey is listed on the manifest as aged 16 and a Lanark miner!
Elizabeth is listed as aged 12y and she was listed in the Waimangaroa 1884 school register.
Elizabeth is recorded in NZ BDM records as marrying Samuel Hollows, another miner in 1888.
They had a number of children born in NZ and moved to Helensburgh, New South Wales in 1904.
I believe you have the latter in your records.
Elizabeth lived to a ripe old age of 86 in NSW.

I hope this fills some of the question marks in your research so-far.

Will update with more when possible.

Best regards.

Hi Peter,
The central problem is that there is no evidence of the presence of William Snr after conception in 1892 in NSW.
The photo of Margaret and 5 children does not include William and was produced by Sibert the travelling photographer. He was in lithgow in 1891-92.
The photo shows 3 boys the youngest is about 2 or 3.
So that suggests the children are Peter, Andrew, James, Elizabeth and Isabella.There is no baby Samuel.

William Snr is clearly absent from the marriage of his first child Mary in 1894, as Margaret gave her permission for the marriage. Unusual if William was around.
Even the style of the registration of the birth is odd with the listing of Margaret as "Maggie"
This is more the style of younger person or a sibling and is not found in the birth certs of any other of his children .I suggest it may have been done by William jnr. He could inform the fact of the birth and legally sign as William Henderson.

So far no death has been found for him in NSW.
I am not suggesting the Nelson death is the final solution but it is the best lead we have at the moment.
Conversely, if it is him and we ignore it we will never find William.

cheers,   :D

Who was the informant of the death, what was their address or occupation (anything at all) as you may be able to track down a connection there of some sort, somehow?

What was the actual date of the DC you have?

Does this tie in with the info. given by your g g/mother?

If so then it would appear you have the correct DC (I think)?
