ARTHUR EDMONDS - 1825 ----- 1875 AD

Journal by edmondsallan

edmondsallan - good morning to all . Arthur & Erana Kaire . continued to live at the Te Ahuatu Marae , Kaikohe . His drinking was a concern . He did all sorts of work up to about 1870 to try and make financial ends meet . He was a very well made , handsome man and it is told that the fairer sex liked to be with him . Erana did have some problems with this but from all accounts Arthur tried to remain faithfull to Erana. Arthur had a variety of jobs , ranging from farm work of all kinds to working odd jobs in Kaikohe , a town that was still growing rapidly . he even dug for gum again . Arthur & family after Charlotte was born in 1860 moved into a small place in Kaikohe after an incident , that caused Erana to fight another woman on the Marae . I was informed where it was , however when I went to find it ( a whole day ) it had been demolished & the neighbours appeared to have moved in recently were unable to assist me .Also by this time Arthur 's drinking habits had changed along way to the good & he was a great father to his kids .We now have to digress to a different part of a story mentioned to me & my brother , by my father . in one of his get to know the family days . I was very young at the time ,but somehow it remained lodged in the grey box of jelly , for over 50 years . ( this how the story / puzzle unwound . After I had been searching about Arthur , ( I was now over 60 ) I was up north , plugging away at Haruru Falls on - Louis & Sarah Gammon Goffe ( nee Edmonds - John Samuel Edmonds daughter ) in fact I was gobbling down a pie , looking at my reference file , When something clicked in my bird brain - What my father had told us two children . After much research , speaking to a couple of oldie oldies in Paihia , the puzzle started to unwind . ** . " Now reader - you need to get a hot cuppa / a bikky / wash your face / clear the mind to follow this next
family trail which at the end takes in once again - " our man " Arthur Edmonds . This part of this true story you are about to be told , and hidden for so long will amaze you on how relative things , seperated , came together . I am going to take a break , have my cuppa & bic ' - Till we meet again - regards - edmondsallan

This man Arthur Edmonds that you speak about describes the same life style that I am living. Is it a curse or is it in the Edmonds genes?
