Lynne Dunn: Seeking Lucy (McCormack/Trevor)

I have been researching my husbands side of the family for a number of years and would be interested to hear from anyone who may know something about Lucy McCormack whom I believe moved to the Karangahake/ Kuaotunu areas in the late 1800’s/ early 1900’s. My understanding is that Lucy and her young daughter Evelyn (Evie) lived in the Karangahake hotel for a while at the turn of the century.

I would be very interested to make contact with anyone who may know about the family and who would be willing to share information.

Thank you.

Shelley Harsant: Harsant Family

I do believe that the Harsant’s are all related, in one form or another.  From what I know, my Grandparents Harry and Mary Ann Harsant came from Sussex England.  They landed in Victoria BC Canada. They had children named William (my Grandfather), his sisters Grace, Irene and another daughter Betsy who died very young.  I don’t know a lot about our family, as My Dad talked very little of them.  The middle names of most were James Ashley.....  

My Great Grandmother Mary Ann Harsant was at the grand opening of the United Church in Victoria BC.  I believe this was in the early 1900’s.

Shereen Bell: Researching Deverall Family

I am curious to locate the name of the wife of Oliver Pipe of Waihi Beach.

Oliver was married to his wife who was from the well known Deverall Family of Waihi.

I am adopted and discovering some of my family history of my birth mother

Mary Davie was Oliver Pipes daughter along with Noelene Pipe and they often stayed at Bonnie Pipes house after their mother died.  

I know nothing of Oliver Pipes wife     ??? Deverall.

This is a part of the family  history that is a big mystery for me.

Would anyone know of any living relatives of the Deverall Family of Waihi that could fill some gaps for me?

Thank-you, Shereen Bell. Email: sandtbell@xtra.co.nz

I was born Jodie Marie Pipe on my birth certificate.

Raewyn: Green Family

I would like any info on my Gt Grandparents Isaac & Sarah Green who came from Australia in 1903 settled in Rahu Rd Karangahake. Isaac Green worked in the mines but I am not sure which one, either the Ohinemuri Coal mine or the Karangahake Gold Mine.

Their four children were enrolled at Karangahake school on 12/10/1903 so I think that's probably not long after they arrived in NZ. It gives their names and ages as Arnold b 16/06/1895. Bertie b 28/06/1893. Ivy b 17/12/1889. Sylvesta b 26/08/1891.
