Hello.

A simple Charles Morrison search of our PapersPast site brings up a number of references to Charles, mining accidents etc and one on February 14 1922, when Mary gives public notice that she is applying for a residential site licence under some mining law. No 125423 14/2/1922.

Waihi Daily Telegraph.

Sorry, must dash, but might get back later to dig further and attach a link or two.

Alan.

PS Back again. For some reason I have been unable to raise a search on CENOTAPH today. However my first PapersPast search for Charles Morrison found few hits in the Waikato. When I returned I just searched for MORRISON limited to the Waihi Daily Telegraph and discovered there was a Mine surveyer and others in that industry. Herewith is links that look like they link to your Charles Lindsay MORRISON.

Mary MORRISON  . a license for a residence site, as specified in a schedule of the Mining Act 1908.

As the local Brotherhood of the Druids Lodge were called to attend the funeral, it might be productive to enquire if their records of that time survive. I know of others that have. The Lodge members supported their own, and it is surprising what minutes contain regarding benefits being offered to spouses and children, in times of sudden death, plus address for service. Support often continuing for quite some time.

I would suggest that you GOOGLE the Waihi Museum and enquire using the email address posted on their Contact Us page. They may also have other items on Mr Charles Lindsay MORRISON.

Thank you everyone  :)

Loads of information to dissect , it does it not surprise me that Charles was a member of the Masons(as were my grandmother and grandfather).

Possible two daughters to different mothers  ??? , my grandmother(b. 1910) was named Edna.

The two girls whose births were illegitimate, are listed as the children of Charles Lindsay Morrison on his WW1 file, so he obviously acknowledged them as being his or at least his responsibility.
