You can search here for children born to Cordelia Frances and James JACKSON >

"Mary SHARPE"  ( Ursula Mary SHARP ) :

Hi Margaret

This is the inquest into the death of "Mary" (Ursula Mary) SHARP -- shown in this report as "Mrs Mary SHARPE".

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/CHP18670905.2.10

... there is mention of "deceased's son"  (do you have his name ??  Not sure if he was NZ-born ? )

Ursula Mary SHARP (nee RUSSELL) :

Had trouble finding her at first - her death is recorded on the New Zealand Index as "Mary".

1867 / 7578  - SHARP - Mary - 35 years

Noting also ... as deduced from the NZ online Death Index, Mary's date of death is given as
4* September 1867, (rather than 3 September 1867) .

Added:  On re-reading the Inquest into death of Mary SHARPE (sic) [Mary SHARP - aka Ursula Mary SHARP] seems she died during the night of Tuesday - which was 3 September 1867.]

Hi Margaret

From FindaGrave - photo of headstone Ursula Mary SHARP (Charles Walter SHARP)

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/226609270/ursula-mary-sharp

If you click on the link for Charles Walter SHARP, you'll find burial for James Walter SHARP (b. 1876) -- he was the son of Charles Walter SHARP by his second wife  Sarah WATTS.

Hello looking for imfo on two sisters both were married in kent u.k.
usular russell married 1847 to charles walter SHARP/E  in kent.
cordelia russell married 1840 in kent to  John Pankhurst,  ???
thankyou margaret.

Hi Margaret

The Cordelia RUSSELL you seek, was actually married in New Zealand.

NZ Marriage Index

1855 - Cordelia Frances RUSSELL -- James JACKSON

As advised by CaroleW there is a "tree"  [trees] at ancestry.com  (search on Charles Walter SHARP - m.  Ursula Mary RUSSELL. )

There are also a number of trees (@ ancestry) for Cordelia Frances Clarence RUSSELL / James JACKSON.   [At least one of these trees was supported by her New Zealand Death Cert. which confirmed names of her parents. ]

William Leonard WILKINSON -cont'd

Before you start searching for his arrival in New York ...
just noting that on Image 1 of his WW1 Army record, on the yellow page there is a stamp "Medal Action Complete" and date "28 March 1924".    His contact address has been struck through but reads "C/- West Side YMCA, New York City".   
I think it's a good idea to go through the file and hunt out all other clues before looking for his arrival in USA.

Still haven't had time to properly read through WW1 record for William Leonard WILKINSON.

This is his return to NZ - Suez to Port Chalmers, Dunedin per "Willochra".
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QJDV-D7YY

[  In the notes on his Army Record it suggests that he was "invalided" back to NZ.  ]

Also on Image 2 of his record, where there is provision to indicate whether his death was a result of "wounds" or "sickness" - wounds has been struck out, leaving sickness.  ???
