I can assist with William Amos Gunner and the two Jessie Francis Gunners. It is complicated. William Amos was married to both a total of three times. I am sure of my facts with a mountain of evidence.
He married Jessie_1 in Vic in 1896 and they moved to NSW. He married Jessie_2 bigamously in Vic in 1916 under a partially assumed name (William Archibald Gunner). He was divorced by Jessie_1 about 1925 in either NSW or Vic (mixed evidence), and married Jessie_2 in NZ about 1925. (I have the relevant certificates, just not in front of me). Jessie_1 moved to NZ and died there. An interesting aspect is that Jessie_1 started divorce proceedings while William Amos Gunner was in prison for fraud, and there are lots of interview documents about the relationships. The final twist is that Jessie_1 and Jessie_2 were first cousins! A further complication is that Jessie_1 was born 'Cook' but was adopted and married as 'Smith'.

Hello Pam

Thank you for your information and contact.
My understanding..Phoebe Alice Louden Gunner was married to Horace James Gunner. Horace died in 1981 and was cremated at Purewa.
Information I was given was that Phoebe died in 1948, maybe I have the wrong Phoebe.
You mentioned that your Dad was one of her sons, how many children did she and Horace have?

Thanks for your help
Look forward to your reply
