RE: Hull, Olsen, Raber Families
You're most welcome ~ I'm glad I was able to help.

Quite an invaluable family history you have in the area~they set the foundation for so many. I see their names in several of the cemeteries. You've done an amazing amount of work!

Continue to take care.

RE: Lucille Dawson and William ( Bill) Dawson
Karen, do you have a lot of additional info to add to these memorials that cannot be done using the new edit system?

Due to a number of hotly disputed transfers I now try to transfer only within Find A Grave rules. I should have looked at your relationship to the deceased more closely before I sent the last message and I apologize for that.

Thank you for understanding.

RE: Lucille Dawson and William ( Bill) Dawson
Hello Karen,
Transfers - Please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial, send a "Suggest any other correction" message including your "ID number", I'm more than happy to transfer memorials to their relatives.

This will ensure I transfer the correct memorial.

Thank you for all that you are doing on Find A Grave

RE: Murdock Davies
Hi again - Around the time of Murdoch's birth there was a Dundee Saw Mill (renamed Henderson Mill) in the area that is now Henderson, Auckland, NZ. Given that there was a workers' camp there, it is possible that is where Murdoch was born. It fits in with your family notes and also with Auckland being the port of arrival of the ship 'Portland' in 1864 :-)

RE: Murdock Davies

The above is an article about a mutiny on the ship 'Portland'. A crew member by the name of Angus McKenzie appears to have been one of the ringleaders.

The above is a passenger list from the ship 'Portland' arriving at Auckland NZ in 1864. There is a passenger - Harriet Walmot. I believe this to be a mispelling of Wilmot.

These arrivals tie in with the birth of Murdoch is 1865 and the marriage of Harriet to Angus in 1865/1866.

The above is an interesting family history which I believe is inaccurate with regards to Harriet's ancestry and perhaps Angus's as well. Some researchers have tried to link Harriet to the family of Sir Henry Sacheverell Wilmot, 4th Baronet of Chaddesden (England). I believe that is unlikely.

Anyhow, some interesting reading for you and a link to your more modern day relatives whom you have already identified I'm sure :-)

RE: Murdock Davies
Sorry - I meant to mention that Murdoch was born here in New Zealand; his mother Harriet came to NZ on the ship 'Portland' in 1864...

RE: Murdock Davies
OK thank you. I asked only because, from a quick look around the internet, I noticed that there are a number of versions of Angus and Harriet's ancestry. Some more fanciful than others!! :-) I have sent you a couple of links that indicate how they may have met and (unfortunately) a possible insight into Angus's character/occupation that may explain the later abandonment and untimely death of Harriet. I apologise if you already have this information. Happy reading :-)
