Thanks Carol - Nothing there. and Trish - Thanks for the names. I believe he is buried in Raetihi, possibly buried by a Maori family - they held on to the mirror that was passed back to the Grandson a few years ago. The Grandson now lives in Australia, and does not know much about his Mother's father.
