Hello Jamjar........

Now just to recap:

This Agnes born 1869, married-

1894/1695 Agnes Souness to John Thomson

Two children born from this union.

John Thomson dies in 1900.

Agnes remarries in 1904 to James Johnston.

Agnes dies in 1921.

You have a better grip on this family than I have at the moment....... :)

Thank you for your good work.

Yes, that's correct.

Here is her will and probate: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-81BF-79M?i=131&cc=1865481

Brave girl married a second railway employee.  ;)

Will and probate for James mentions his stepson. He requested cremation.

It all hangs together doesn't it. I see from the affidavit that Agnes Johnston, formerly Thomson nee Souness was born @ East Taieri.

I wonder if a Rootschatter may be able to confirm where this birth was registered?

1869/35380   Souness   Agnes   Agnes   John

Hi Minniehaha,

1869/35380   Souness   Agnes   Agnes   John

The folio number you provided above must be the more recent number found on NZBDM Historical Indexes online, and not the original microfiche listing.

The District Keys are only matched to the latter. If you can provide the microfiche folio number for this birth I will be able to find the location using the District Keys.
