... you may like to look further at PapersPast, but the only item I found for William Andrew MARTIN (died April 1925 ) was the following which was published in a number of national newspapers.

Unfortunately no personal details whatsoever.

I wouldn't perhaps read too much into the fact that William Andrew MARTIN left a good part of his estate to the widowed Apikara LARDELLI (it seems that he was also a friend or colleague of her late husband, Victor S. LARDELLI, who incidentally left a sizeable estate, himself.)
And William A. MARTIN did of course also make provision in his will for his (estranged ?) wife Catherine Ann, to benefit financially.

William A. MARTIN's last Will was dated 18 November 1922.   
It is not until 1925 that Apikara LARDELLI is shown as living at 7 Harris Street, Gisborne (the residence of William Andrew MARTIN). [She could though have been there earlier ?   Electoral rolls cannot always be relied upon to given accurate info.]

Catherine Ann MARTIN in 1919 had lived at # 5 Harris Street - with William A. residing at # 7 Harris Street, Gisborne.   The Harris Street properties owned by William A. were described in his Will ... "# 7 Harris Street being the middle of the three houses (owned) on that street".

I can't find Catherine again until 1935 when she's living in Auckland at # 17 Maurice Ave, Parnell (there in 1938 also).  [Note:  She's not the Catherine Ann Martin living with a daughter in Hastings (1928). ]

Noting also that the Will of William A. MARTIN stated that (after bequests to Apikara and Catherine Ann) the residue of his estate should go to his sister, Margaret TONER (looks like?) of Sydney, Australia.
So it really does not seem like he and Catherine had children.

Waikumete Cemetery - Auckland :

[Note:   According to an earlier recent thread on here, there are currently (but soon to be resolved) issues with obtaining information from the online records for above cemetery. ]

The following though comes from cemetery (burial) information (source:  ancestry.com) >

Waikumete Cemetery - Wesleyan F - Row 6

Plot 59 :   Katherine Ann MARTIN - buried 14-8-1952.

[Plots which have headstones, are indicated as such in this record.   It appears there is no h/stone for Katherine Ann MARTIN. ]

THANK YOU WHENU ... I have been wanting to communicate with you. Now I see where you come in ... the Australian family. Yes, Ethel is a half-sister to Catherine/Katherine and William. Their father sure had a lot of children, with many dying in infancy or too soon in adult life. I'd love to talk more.
