Thanks Lucy for even more information to flesh out a life - very cool indeed. It wouldn't surprise me if the court references are her - Georgina the last daughter I am told was born in 1868 at Addison's Flat, Buller.

I think Martin Stack was her son in law - Georgina Cregan's first husband. Remarkable you found this cemetery record as well. I see there are findagrave memorials too, although no pictures of headstones.

Hi Zumaro

the Martin William STACK (died 1921 - aged 29 years) is in fact the son of Georgina and her first husband, Martoin STACK.
So Martin William STACK shares a plot with his grandmother, Catherine MULLIGAN.

I checked a resource (other than Find-a-grave) but unfortunately there doesn't appear to be headstones for these people.

In case it's of interest, Martin STACK (husband of Georgina) died in 1895.

Burial at Orowaiti Old Cemetery, West Coast.

Some strange things remain - Georgina Gibson's death certificate is quite contrarily wrong in its names.

I wonder what happened to James Cregan then? He is described as a mariner, a labourer, a miner on documents, and presumably is Georgina's father as well.


Hi Zumaro

Not altogether surprising that there are errors with "names" on the Death record of Georgina GIBSON.  ;D   
[Her parents names given as John MULLIGAN and Georgina MULLIGAN (no maiden surname) ... and her place of birth as "Westport".]

Her three sons had predeceased her ... and according to the documents in the application for Letters of Administration - Estate of Georgina GIBSON, only her daughter Alice RUSS (aged 40 ?) and 3 grandsons (sons I think, of John Thomas STACK ?) survived her.


Letters of Administration file for Georgina GIBSON :

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS92-YJT4?i=160&cc=1865481&cat=2278074

Death Certificate : Georgina GIBSON appears at Image # 164    :

The 1890 NZ Marriage record (printout) (CREGAN - STACK) should clarify who Georgina CREGAN
"considered" was her father.

As the family is from Ireland you might ask for a look-up on the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch baptism index CD. Some of the West Coast is covered. I think Buller/Reefton is included but don't quote me.

Beg

Zumaro .. no need to request a look-up of this CD   ;D ... I have already done so (using a variety of possible surnames / and spellings).   

Unfortunately, no luck in finding a baptism for Georgina.  :(
