Hello June,

This may be something or absolutely nothing, and probably too far fetched, BUT I came across this death-

1916/2295   Sneddon**   Margaret   78Y [The age ties in pretty well with what you have for Margaret Snoddan and I note a 'Sneddon' appears somewhere.]

Her actual date of death was: 6.5.1916.

Bear with me: The following from Papers Past:

Sudden death:

Death notice:

NOTE:Date of death was 6.5.1916.

Funeral notice:

Patrick?
1903/6111   Keliher   Patrick   77Y

**I have not been able to find the death registration for one Margaret Keliher/Kelliher in 1916. So could this be 'your' Margaret?


Talk about thinking outside the square! but I thought I would just throw this into the mix. To be shot down in flames, or otherwise...... ;D

Definitely worth looking at. I will try and find her burial site and search her on Ancestry Trees.

In the NZ indexes there is a death of a Margaret Kelcher, age 78, died 6.5.1916.
So could that be Margaret Keliher?

Death in 1927 of William Keliher of Ohoka Road, Kaiapoi. Age 75.
That age doesn't make sense to me if he is son of Margaret.
Notice above is a Kelcher!

Mmm ... I believe this KELIHER family who resided at Kaiapoi, came to New Zealand (arrived at Auckland - January 1875) aboard the "Dilharee".  They hailed from Co. Kerry, Ireland.

Per "Dilharee"
KELIHER - Patrick - 40 / Margaret - 36  = born circa 1838 / William - 22 = bc 1852 /  Edward - 20 / Mary - 16 / Patrick - 13 / B???  aged 9  / Margaret - 6 and Daniel aged 2 :
[At various times William, Edward, Mary and Daniel KELIHER are at the Ohoka Road address along with Patrick and Margaret. ]

The ages of this  ^ Margaret KELIHER and her son William who died in 1927, are very good matches with the ages in the coroner's report and  death notices.   [But this Margaret can, I'm sure, be eliminated. ]

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/CHP19271003.2.5
-- 1927 Death notice for William KELIHER - s/o late Margaret and Patrick ... aged 75 years (bc 1852).

Ooops ... sorry John ... looks like I repeated your info re: William KELIHER's death.

Found this earlier >

NZ Death Index (at ancestry.com)

Year :  1916

KELIHER - Margaret
Death : 2 quarter  -  Registered at Kaiapoi
*  Folio No.  1504


---

YEAR :  1916

SNEDDON - Margaret
Death :  2nd quarter    -  Death Registered at Christchurch.
*  Folio No.  1458


[Note:  *  These folio numbers were used before the NZ BDM indexes became available for viewing online and bear no relation to the registration numbers now in use. ]
-----
It does seem the that the NZ Death Index online has a spelling error for the registration of Margaret KELIHER [shown as "KELCHER" ].   ;D

June ... there is another "Margaret" eliminated.    ;)

Thank you Lu. I have been to BDM and ordered what appears to be young Charles's death certificate to see if perhaps she remarried. The other option may be that we have been looking for an elderly woman whereas she may have passed earlier. I will revisit the list of deaths.

Charles Duncan Jnr, buried at Tuatapere Southland has his mother on the Death Certificate detailed as Margaret Sneddon and father as Charles Duncan. I am now looking at William and think that he is also in Southland.

Hi June,

"I have been unable so far to find their shipping passenger entry into NZ."

If you request a look up for the 'Intention to Marry' document, you may get some indication as to when the couple arrived. Although the document only states how the long the couple had resided in the area where they intended to marry.

For information see here....
