Had a few moments at the library this afternoon, so thought I'd back-track through the marriage microfiche to double-check for Mary Dorothea RILEY or Mary Dorothea THRUSTON or Mary Dorothea THURSTON from 1924 -1944 and there was nothing.

Thanks Beg and TwiggyTree,

I've never doubted your word yet, Beg, and I'm not about to start now! ;) ;D Thanks for doing that, the Ryerson Index and AUS research is still very new to me.

TwiggyTree, thanks very much for checking through the marriage fiche for ALL THREE NAMES!

Spades another avenue to try would be to get Eva's NZ marriage certificate .... Mary might have been a witness. I ordered one the other week on a Friday and had it on the Tuesday, how is that for service :D

Been thinking about the mothers death notice, we know that notices before 1950 were short and sweet and didn't always mention children if any.† †In my case I had one in 1930 and just found out recently there was a child to the marriage.


Cheers

Evening KHP,

Good idea. I might hold it in reserve to see what the death notice says. In any case Mary might not appear on it.

I have checked the Rotorua Council Cemetery Database as suggested by TwiggyTree, but no mention of Mary Dorothea under the name RILEY, THURSTON or THRUSTON.

I don't know if it is due to the Silverlight application or the design, but this database is very intuitive and quick to use.

But the 1928 Electoral Roll mention of 'Mary Dorothea RILEY' is tantalising...I'll see if she appears there in later rolls.

I have received a response from the owner of the SECCOMBE family tree who has given permission to post the following information.

Emma Crichtonís parents were James CRICHTON (1821-1905) and Emily Lee EBAN (cí1847-1919). James CRICHTON hailed from Covington LKS SCT and he married Emily Lee EBAN at Nelson on 13 December 1866.

Their children were:

1) James; born 1867 at Spring Grove, Nelson, died 1930 at Nelson. He married Ethel WIN (1869 Ranzau NLN NZ -1959) in 1901.
2) Emma; born 1868 at Stanley Brook, Nelson, died 1943 at Auckland. She married Herbert THRUSTON in 1893 at Wellington.
3) Grace; born circa 1870 at Stanley Brook, Nelson, died 1945 at Nelson. She married Samuel TEECE (circa 1857 Shropshire ENG-1930 Neudorf NLN NZ) in 1902 at Stanley Brook, Nelson.
4) Robert; No birth or death dates provided. He married Agnes May GRIFFITH in 1901 at Spring Grove, Nelson. They had five children.

The reply from NZSG North Shore doesn't advance my search unfortunately. They do not hold death notices for either 1915 or 1943.

I have visited National Library and searched issues of the New Zealand Herald from 23 October 1943 to the end of that month but did not find any death notice for Emma THRUSTON.

RATS :(

I have now ordered Emma's death certificate, hoping that Mary Dorothea might be among any surviving children.

She's playing very hard to get!
