Kia ora again Karen

Just popped in for a bit of a read. Perhaps the Jessie and Gavin I found are not your family? Gavin was not a very common name in NZ, whereas Jessie was, so maybe they are right though. Do you know anymore wee snipets of info, like that Jessie was supposed to have died in 1893? Did Jessie have a second name, or Gavin?

hi fiona, thanks for all the help youre giving me. well i did a search on family search which gave me quite a lot of information and according to that jessie was supposed to have died in 1888!

but from past experience i know that these dates are not always correct. :roll:

another interesting fact is that jessie was also sometimes called janet. i have a few things where she is janet and a few where she is jessie! its also the same with her daughter jessie/janet.

thanks

karen

Hello MelRees and [TS_welcome]
Karen was last on the forum just under a month ago, so I expect she'll be back again soon. In the meantime, you could send her a pm in case she missed the notification that new information had been posted on this thread.

All the best,
Sarah
