Hi Deeiluka,

Insteresting that you should find that. One of the deaths that i posted up earlier was a son of Leander John Johnson, who was married to a Sarah Annie. I would be assuming that they're one and the same. Perhaps Olive is maybe his sister? Or a child.

This could be the Leander I'm looking for. Is there any other info you have??

As for the question on when they returned to New Zealand? I have no idea...hence the reason I was looking to the electoral roles or census data to determine when they were here

Thanks Dee, I look forward to your next post.

Newbe, I have a headstone in NZ for a Sarah Ann Johnson.

I have no idea if this is one and the same though.

Hi Newbe,

Just focusing on Leander Johnson & Sarah Ann Wagner (Waggon) at the moment. As I have no info on who these guys' parents are. It's a huge dead end for me.

Even if I can find out when Leander came to New Zealand to being with? He was apparently a Copra Trader *which doesn't tell me much*. Though rumour has it, he came from Finland. No idea on Sarah Annie. The only date I have is on the headstone for Sarah Ann which is 16/01/1962...

it's all very frustrating! :)

Sorry Newbe, i think we have our lines crossed somewhere.

Leander is the first name. Johnson is the surname :(
