Agnes buried in Samoa - no wonder I couldn't find her in Qld.  ::)

(I am curious to discover what they were all doing in Samoa).

Isabella Martha LANDELLS married 1928 Qld, #C103, Isabel Martha WEBER died 1954 Qld, parents as William James LANDELLE, Hertha NETZLER, #C1395 - as per free to search Qld BDM  :)

Samoa - umm.... many reasons to go to the South Seas Islands ... missionaries, government admin staff, to support other family members already there, or escape from family members ....

I like your "missionary" suggestion JM (considering William's background). :)

Thanks once again, @majm.

I had found a Billion Graves photo for Henrietta Netzler, and in Qld BDM the death of Isabel Martha Landells in 1954 -
1954/C1395  Isabel Martha Weber    Father:  William James  Landelle  Mother: Hertha Netzler

Some of this is coming together. The cert for William James Landells is worth a try - he's more closely related to me.
Not sure why the Samoan link - I will have to check Trove and also the NZ newspapers I think. As there hasn't been much 'activity' in my line in Qld, I haven't checked much of the Qld newspaper writings in that period either.

Numerous Netzlers in FS trees, in Samoa. I have 30, still looking for connection between Henrietta and Agnes Phoebe / Phoebe Agnes.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/168634656
Shipping notices 1912 show Landells, W.J. Landells, W. Landells arriving "from south". I am assuming these members also arrived sometime prior from New Zealand or Samoa.

Also, a William James Landells was victim of theft, amount 18 shillings, in May 1931 - in Qld. I originally misread this as his conviction. Not so ..
However, there may have been several with the same name in Queensland.

And your OP notes a Henrietta as a possible wife (1903) of William James LANDELLS ... which is one of the reasons for suggesting you purchase his 1954 Qld death cert.

So there's possibly two named Henrietta  :) that would be of interest to your quest.

Samoa Times and South Seas Gazette, Volume 3, Issue 123, 7 February 1880 Census list of foreigners in Apia.

NZ Papers Past (free to search of course) has NETZLER and LANDELLS (3 of them) on the same page of the above paper.
