Hi ... I agree - seems most likely to be the Amelia Carolina/Caroline, you seek.    ;)

Was really just alerting you to the  "other records" - because of course there can be errors in spelling of names etc.  (particularly foreign names).   But I see you are "on to that".   ;D

And I'd agree the use of "Emilia / Emillie / Emily" (however spelled) was often substituted for "Amelia / Amelie" etc.

New Zealand Completed Requests / Re: Looking for a Leeston, NZ old Identity

Thanks will look into it. The child (my father) was not put into child welfare but was raised by his grandparents.
He wasn't formally adopted but legally fostered.

Hi again Wendy ... just in case you misunderstood why I'd posted in response to the "Letters of Administration" record.   ???

It was to "eliminate this adopted man, whom a number of records show, was born in 1921"   (and you'd already stated previously that your father was born 1935. )

[Note: there is mention of an adoption in the documents.]

Minniehaha.


Hi Wendy

 ... just wish to point out that the "adopted person" referred to in the above record -  and mentioned too in an attached Will filed with these papers, is a man who was born in the year 1921 - and who married in the early 1940's.

[There are ample records available to substantiate this finding -  although in some instances there are slight variations in spelling of a forename and the surname. ]

Added for clarification ... and so you don't go "barking up wrong trees".   ;)

Found this earlier >

NZ Death Index (at ancestry.com)

Year :  1916

KELIHER - Margaret
Death : 2 quarter  -  Registered at Kaiapoi
*  Folio No.  1504


---

YEAR :  1916

SNEDDON - Margaret
Death :  2nd quarter    -  Death Registered at Christchurch.
*  Folio No.  1458


[Note:  *  These folio numbers were used before the NZ BDM indexes became available for viewing online and bear no relation to the registration numbers now in use. ]
-----
It does seem the that the NZ Death Index online has a spelling error for the registration of Margaret KELIHER [shown as "KELCHER" ].   ;D

June ... there is another "Margaret" eliminated.    ;)

Mmm ... I believe this KELIHER family who resided at Kaiapoi, came to New Zealand (arrived at Auckland - January 1875) aboard the "Dilharee".  They hailed from Co. Kerry, Ireland.

Per "Dilharee"
KELIHER - Patrick - 40 / Margaret - 36  = born circa 1838 / William - 22 = bc 1852 /  Edward - 20 / Mary - 16 / Patrick - 13 / B???  aged 9  / Margaret - 6 and Daniel aged 2 :
[At various times William, Edward, Mary and Daniel KELIHER are at the Ohoka Road address along with Patrick and Margaret. ]

The ages of this  ^ Margaret KELIHER and her son William who died in 1927, are very good matches with the ages in the coroner's report and  death notices.   [But this Margaret can, I'm sure, be eliminated. ]

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/CHP19271003.2.5
-- 1927 Death notice for William KELIHER - s/o late Margaret and Patrick ... aged 75 years (bc 1852).

Ooops ... sorry John ... looks like I repeated your info re: William KELIHER's death.
