Hello...

Maybe the following death ?

1977/42052 - REID, Rubina - d.o.b 30 June 1893

Cremated at Wanganui Aramoho

---

Archway has a Rubina READ married 23 Sep 1914 to a Richard HOARE with children named Zelma Agnes b.23 Dec 1914 and and Emma Olive b.10 Sep 1917.

The following link is to Richard's Army Service record at Archway (but the link seems a bit unreliable at the moment)

HOARE, Richard - WW1 75580 - Army

yayyyy ;D ;D ;D ;D

thank you!

I searched for 'Ruby' only as that is what she had on the marriage cert.
and  it is definitely dated 25 Sept 1915

Daughter birth is 1916/9320  and her death is 1977

Hopefully now we can find a birth record for Rubina???  What is Archway?

If the link works...

https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/AboutArchway.do

If not...

It's the Archives NZ website

---

The births/marriage dates given in the Army record and the dates given on the BDM NZ website disagree by a year. I guess you'd go by the BDM NZ website. Maybe there's a birth/marriage notice in PapersPast

---

You might need to check the Births fiche for a mention of Rubina. Her birth definitely doesn't seem to be on the BDM NZ website.

Hi,

I don't see a Reid/Ferguson  marriage in NZ for her parents,could Rubina have been born overseas?

Cheers Janette

Unfortunately not the above 1977 death.

That Rubina REID (nee JACKSON) married 1913 to Alexander David William Henry REID.

NZ Birth


1893 / 12614 - JACKSON - Rubena -- date of birth = 30 June 1893
Parents :   Catherine and Charles

Hello Gaye

At PapersPast, a report on the Divorce of Richard HOARE v. Ruby HOARE, states that Ruby deserted him.
https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/EP19231105.2.90


*  Do you know who raised the daughters, Zelma and her sister (- seems sister's name was Esma or Esme - rather than Emma) ??

It appears that Zelma at least, attended school in the Petone (Hutt Valley) area of Wellington.
-->  "Evening Post" 12 December 1931 - Senior Free places for pupils attending night classes at Petone Technical HighSchool :  HOARE, Zelma

--> and earlier - 20 December 1929 (E/Post) ... Zelma HOARE a pupil at Petone Central School.
