Hi there
I see you have both these names listed in your research and just thought I'd point out to you a mystery photograph album that has been discovered by the folks at Auckland City Library, which features both these names. Maybe it has some connection to your family?
thank you Annie, well spotted

This is a blog site I haven't see before, called:
KINTALK, Whanau korero: Family history
- can you identify the individuals in the photos??
*Mr & Mrs Walter Johnson celebrating their golden wedding anniversary
*Portrait of Mildred Dunn, aged 3 years, Mrs Curlett on the reverse
(is this Mildred Madge Dunn, daughter of Henry DUNN & Ellen SAUNDERS of Eketahuna?)

The four research centres in Central, South, West and North Auckland hold a wide variety of published diaries. Including diaries from: Rev. R. Burrows during Heke's war in the North (1845); Katherine Mansfield (1888-1923); Annie & Harold Beauchamp on board R.M.S. "Ruahine, travelling from Wellington to London (1898) and a NZ solider in a POW camp during WW2 (and of course, great old photos)
