Journal by neich

Currently researching Featherston WW1. Military Cemetery here in Wairarapa. New Zealand. Have all the headstone photographs if anyone would like one, also wish to find out about the back ground of each soldier please, rather than his military career.

Also researching early settlers to Carterton District and its cemetery.

FEATHERSTON. if anyone can please give me further on any soldier who died at Featherston, photographs, would be wonderful. I do have some on a few soldiers, like Edric Beetham Williams and Benson Wyman, latter came from a contact in Canada, as his wife remarried and went to Canada... its a very interesting project, and copies of my research into these soldiers will be handing over to Heritage Museum in Featherston. I often visit the cemetery, Private Thomas Wm. Spence King, was the Gt. Grandson to John King who came to NZ in 1814 with Samuel Marsden, his original headstone is now next to his grandfather at Waimate North Church yard. Restored and placed there a few years back, Thomas died off illness aged 20 in 1916. Have more on him as well..
Remember 2014 is the Centenary of The Great War, we will not forget them, especially these soldiers, some who fought at Gallipoli, France. Egypt, returned to NZ and died of Influenza, 150 of them dying buried at Featherston. Maori TV has filmed here several times.
Thank you.
