Just to add a bit more for your thinking cap Minnie.

On the 1896 E/R Marion Johanna Newton Orr is a teacher/spinster, living in Gala St, Invercargill, James Orr, Invercargill, teacher.

1905/1906 for Otago a teacher along with Margaret Flora McKenzie Orr.

First appears in the North Island in 1919, sometimes without the Newton names.

So I am going to put down what I deleted in my post.

From the NZ Cemetery Records.

Along with the details of Marion, there is James Haldane, 72 years, died 3 Sept, buried 15 Sept 1962, Invercargill (dates given) .. and a John Bell Orr, aged 82 years, buried 19 Aug 1968 born Scotland.

So perhaps I am wrong in assuming that it isn't Marion... apologies.

Deleted what I had put down.  I think the 1966 Marion could be the wrong person, as on further research there is a Marion Johanna Newton Orr who on the E/R for Eden in 1957 was a teacher and a spinster. Disappears after that. Death age was 87 years so born abt 1879.

Think if you get the death notice, the death date was 3 Feb 1966, this will confirm whether it is your lass or not. and to be buried in Mangere Cemetery is a looooooong way from way down South.

**I have not found where Marion was buried.

Minniehaha.

Hi Minnie,

Send an email to Mangere Cemetery, that is if someone is there during lockdown. There was also a notice in the paper, so another email to the National Library, once you narrow the death date might be a quicker response than the cemetery.

Hello,

I'd like to get some sort of pass, free or paid, where I have unlimited access to their documents, even for a limited time.

Thanks for any help.

Hello,

There used to be a time, when we got the thumbs up on here, that Scotlands People were giving away a certain amount of free credits for a certain time, but in saying that I haven't seen that for a couple of years.

Yes, it is expensive parting with money on SP, but it is the only way to go backwards to find family to help you on your way.

KT,

It all changed when Auckland became Auckland Super City, and the boundaries changed. :)

It would have come under Franklin District, think it is now under Auckland Council.

It is now under Waikato District Council.

Hi Ian,

A nice drive through it on the Coast Road.  Been fishing there.   A little snippet about it.
