Hi Carol

Mmm ... the following thread (and I haven't read through it to refresh my memory) was in the main about Cecilia Margaret LINDHOLD (LINDHOLT) who'd married Frederick SWAIN in 1888, and, Ruby, a child of Cecilia.     Anna Maria LINDHOLT is mentioned.   There is also a link within this thread to another, which has LINDHOLT information (and which you have probably particiated in ).
"Tigerprawn" was the person wanting information but I distinctly remember in either said thread, or another, someone giving additional information about Annie THORNHILL's death (1915), her battle with alcohol, etc. etc.

I don't have time at present to go looking for the exact thread ... but you could try searching here by clicking on the "Search" button at top of page (on the brown bar).

Carol ... just an afterthought ...

I remember reading something in the Cecilia Margaret SWAIN thread while the search was going on, that Cecilia (after leaving husband SWAIN) had gone to reside with her mother, in the North Island ???    It may have had to do with the divorce ... or the petition for divorce.   ???

.... here's the petition for divorce notice ... which mentions that it had been published in newspapers in Wellington, Napier and Dannevirke.

Thanks for all the input from you all. It is much appreciated.
I had not see the petition for divorce for Margaret, so that's new.
I have a lot that implies she is my Annie but NO Facts.
Will go back through my files today and see if there is anything else.

Hi Carol

Maybe a request for a look-up of the Coroner's report into the 1915 death of Annie THORNHILL, might prove fruitful ?

https://archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=23720909

Whilst the death and coroner's verdict was published widely in NZ newspapers, the numerous reports basically all contained the same five lines of text.  ::)

Annie died on New Year's day 1915 ... and the inquest was held on 2 January ... (holiday time)... this may have been a reason there was only very brief reporting of the event ?    The Coroner's report likely holds additional info ?

I left the request for Coroner's report in my first post. Hoping the report may tell me who found her or who she was drinking with. Her probate tells me nothing except she was also known under the surname of James. The information i have received comes from family members but......
Annie Maria would have been my late husband's birth great grandmother. He was adopted out by his mother in the 1950's.The other members are also trying this family through their adopted loved ones.
So no family stories to pass down.
