Looking at PapersPast I think that both files are for the same woman

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/WOODEX19150104.2.5?query=annie%20thornhill

"
"Woodville Examiner, Volume XXVII, Issue 4584, 4 January 1915

A woman named Annie Thornhill was found dead at Dannevirke on the evening of New Year’s Day. At the inquest. Dr Reid Mackay said death was primarily due to alcoholic excess, dud was caused by suffocation during a condition of faint or fit."

There a quite a few articles on her death

Hi Thanks for all your help.
Re Annie Thornhill. I believe her to be Annie Maria Lindholt b  1867 Oster Logum, Aabenraa-Sonderborg, Denmark. She married William Alfred Thornhill 10 Aug 1883 Registrar Office Invercargill, New Zealand. William remarries in 1917 in Invercargill. I ordered her death cert years ago but  said i only wanted it if her Parent's names were correct and / or her Husband was William. They did not send the cert as this info was not on it. I can not find another Annie Thornhill death at the right age.
As i am writing this i wonder if the 1917 ITM would have William as widowed ?

How do i prove this is Annie Maria ? I have now have her using James as a surname.

Looking at the various records it appears that the informant may not have been a close relation,the cemetery record indicates this as even her marital status is unknown so quite likely that information is not on her death printout

Hi Carol

This Annie THORNHILL / Anna Maria LINDHOLT (however spelt), is the subject of another thread in this forum (I recall working on finding information for someone else sometime ago).

I will search for the relevant thread, and post links for it here.
