Do you have any information about John Smith in this marriage to Betsey Robbins,
I am trying to find his date and place of birth, his parents names.
I have been trying to find his death in NZ but nothing comes to light. He was on the ship Matoaka when it arrived here in December 1860. Betsey married a James Sealey in 1862 in Kaiapoi, NZ. So between their arrival to NZ and her 2nd marriage he died somewhere?? Not sure if you can find any information to light.
