Hall family - Palmerston North New Zealand

Journal by liferite

My grandmother, Elizabeth Margaret Hall, was born in New Zealand in 1878. Her father was Samuel and her mother, Amy.
Amy died when Grandma (Elizabeth) was about 5.
Samuel re-married.
Elizabeth came to Australia around the turn of the century and never returned to New Zealand. She lived in Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. She had siblings and I would like to find some of the family descendants.
She married William Westwell-Tunstall and had one child, Aimee Margaret(my mother).

Samuel Hall was my great Grandfather, who immigrated from Ireland.

I don't have much information on your Grandmother Elizabeth as I have descended from his second marriage to Emily McCammon. But I have some good stories about him and his family in NZ with a lot of detail about where they lived and businesses etc. He did not remarry again for 13 years, so would have raised your grandmother with out a wife. The information I have will give you a back ground on your Grandmother Elizabeth's childhood and it will give you a sense of her environment she was raised in, if that interests you.

Samuel Hall was born in 1851 in Keady, Ireland to Edward Hall and Margaret Hall(nee Kirker).

If you would like to know more let me know and I will post it up here. I have a folder about him and generations to come.
