Hi Kim

Jane and William JACKSON did come to live in New Zealand, although I can't be precise with a timeframe.

They are buried together at Hillsborough Cemetery in Auckland > details at following link.

Search on JACKSON - Jennie*  :   See Return  [1 of 1 ]  - died April 1927

Search on JACKSON - William :   See Returns [5 of 9 ] and [6  of  9 ] - died 1936



That link is not working try this one

They are under Central and Hauraki Gulf Islands

Cheers Janette

Merry Christmas everyone

       Sorry I haven't been online for a while...a little overwhelmed by all the response, Thank you so much...

Elizabeth was born 15/6/1835 in New Monkland, Lanarkshire, Scotland, eldest daughter of William Alexander WATT & Jane HUTCHISON
she married Archibald Jackson 25/12/1855 in New Monkland, They had 10 children 9 boys & 1 girl all born in Scotland. The family emigrated to NSW Australia sometime after 1881 which is when they last appear in the Scottish Census. Archibald died 19/7/1905 in Wallsend. On his headstone it says "Erected by his loving wife" so Elizabeth was still alive at this point. Then she drops off the grid. She is not buried with Archibald or her daughter Jane Dunbar. I have found the deaths in NSW of her 3 Youngest children but not Elizabeth so I started looking for her son William & his wife Jane (Lithgow) who had emigrated to Australia some time after Elizabeth & Archibald. Nothing...then I found the death of William Lithgow Jackson in N.Z. & started to wonder if William & Jane had left Australia for N.Z. taking the elderly Elizabeth with them. Elizabeth was 70 when Archibald died. While the passenger to London From Sydney in 1917 does fit I doubt Elizabeth would be returning to The UK at such an advanced age when all her children were in Australia & N.Z. & with the exception of a brother (deceased) & sister in Queensland the rest of Elizabeth's family ( parents & siblings) emigrated to America... There would be nothing for her in Scotland

The children of William Jackson & Jane Lithgow
Jane
William Lithgow
David
Elizabeth
John
Alexander
James
I haven't gone any further than this with William & Jane because it is actually Elizabeth WATT I am looking for...she was the sister of my ancestor David Hutchison WATT. Elizabeth is the only sibling of his that I have lost track of.

               Thank you all for your help
