Hi, Mekal Norman Olsen is my great-grandfather. The geni tree linked to earlier is mine but it's a work in progress, not meant to be gospel! I had the date for M.Herman Olsen incorrect but only there for a few days before I realised my mistake (2am and my brain mistaking insolvency for intestacie).
I am also incredibly stuck on Mekal Herman Olsen, can't find a death or burial anywhere. Just the rumour that he was Norwegian.
Mekal Norman, Deas, and Daphne are all buried alongside one another in Aramoho Cemetery in Whanganui.

Read reply#2 please.

More information available on NAA and you have the option to purchase an historical image of his marriage certificate [AUD$21.40] online from Qld BDM which should show his age, place of birth, occupation, parents' names including mother's maiden name.

Yes, I definitely would though I think my kids would get upset at not being fed   ;D
It's on my list of things to order when I am rich enough to have a credit card  ;)

I was mostly just agreeing with the OP about knowing nothing about him.
