BTW forget about the numbers you quoted. They are reference numbers created by whatever site you looked at to get the index entries and they are no use for looking up the originals.
hi im trying to send a letter that i got with there imformation l page but this sight wont let me send the page it tells me 900 pb  so anoying how can i send to you apart from thisthanks from peter again
Thanks Forfarian,

I did ask "Can you post what you have found so far please as a reference?" which was asking for the info. not reference numbers.

A link would have been an idea as those numbers don't tell us a thing as you've more or less stated.

Hi All,

Peter emailed me the copy of death certificate of Margaret Casey,who died at 81 yo on 14 September 1934 at Point Chevalier, 24 Moa Road. she was a widow who had married twice, second husband Michael O'Connell who she married at 63. She was buried at Hillsborough on 16 Sep 1934.

It states she was first married at 18 in Scotland to William Henderson and had 6 sons and 3 daughters. (I had miscounted to 5 sons, changed)


It also states her parents were William and Mary Casey (no maiden surname), William was a miner apparently.

I have searched Scotland Peoples and LDS Family Search site and cannot get a marriage of William Henderson and Margaret Casey.

Further questions for Peter,

1 - Do you know when and where they landed in NZ?

2 - Can you list the children of William and Margaret Henderson's 5 sons and 3 daughters names and approx date of births?

3 - Do you know her mother's maiden surname?

This looks like it could be the marriage?

Could Margaret have been a preferred name?

HENDERSON WILLIAM     CASEY KATE
1900
644/8 387
Milton

I had a relative who was known to my aunt as 'aunt Maggie' but when I eventually found her, she was born as Lilian, married as Lilian yet she was on the 1901 & 1911 as Maggie.

My aunt also knew her marital surname (a blessing in disguise) or I would probably have still been searching for her to this day  ::)
My aunt was born 1930s i.e. Lilian was still known as Maggie after her marriage in 1915.

Annie

ADDED The marriage would confirm both sets of parents names as well as mothers maiden names

Hmmm. If her age at death is accurate, that would mean she was born in 1852/1853. Add 18 to that, and she would have been married in 1870/1871. So her age doesn't tally with the date of marriage supplied, but it's only out by a year or two, which isn't unusual.

Is there any evidence to say where she was born? Could she, for instance, have been born in Ireland?

Hi All,

Yes, the marriage seems a bit late, in her death certificate she was married at 18, and was 81 at time of death in 1934, so looking around 1871 for marriage.

Ireland is a possibility. Will do some chasing there.
