I am absolutely amazed how you find this stuff. It might take me 100 years if ever I found it. So it looks like Archie did go to New Zealand to work for a while between 1921 and 1929 when he returned with baby Jean.

So Archie was in Benardoville, New Jersey, when his sisters Agnes and Lena emigrated in 1921, also Alexander Watterson. In Jan 1925, he is on the New York passenger list, presuming returning from Ireland - maybe a visit. then he is in New Zealand, returning in 1929. So went to New Zealand between 1925 and 1929. When was he on the Electoral Rolls in New Zealand.? He gets about, in days when travel was not so easy or cheap.
Thanks
