Marriage: 1946. May Jane Cameron. born 15 may 1927.  death 19 Feb 1997.

Also Thomas Henry Te Puni. wife could be Georgina Baldwin.

Hi History 2015,  I am a relative of Georgina Baldwin.  Her first marriage was to John Lyle she had one son and then married Thomas Te Puni.  John and Georgina had a son, Eric Lyle, he married my mothers Aunt Whanapani Raita  Clark.  In the family trees I have seen Georgina did not have a George and in fact he is 20 years younger  than Eric, her son John, Ida and Amira who died at birth.  I wonder then given he lived at the same address they all did but after they had left home whether George is actually  the next generation and was raised as a sibling
