James later severed his connection with the Express Company and was employed by Mr A. P. Lundon. James took poison in Wanganui on 29 April 1930 while in a state of depression caused (according to his son Joseph Raymond Duigan), at his having had an accident to his leg 7 months previously which had caused considerable trouble
John Evelyn Duigan (1883-1950), Military Leader, was a son of James Duigan (1843-1903), (Proprietor of the Wanganui Flour Mills, Owner of the 'Chronicle', part owner of the Wanganui Brewery, Founder of the Wanganui Meat Freezing Works and Editor for a time of the Wanganui Herald) and of Mary Emily Broad of Brighton
* there was a Charles Lowther Duigan, an auctioneer in Wanganui

I believe there is a connection with these Duigan and with James Augustine Duigan

Hi Ngaire
My husband is related to David Richard Paul and Florence May Nixon, hence he is also related to Joseph Richard Paul and Elizabeth Lyster and also to James Cochran Nixon and Jane Paul. We are curious about all of these people but on particular we are wondering if you have any knowledge of Jane Paul's parentage?
Thanks in advance

Hope someone can help Wendy, keep an eye on this journal

I am related to Evelyn Paul. She was my Aunty and she actually died the day I married 29.1.74 so I don't know where the information came from that she died at 2. She bought my mother up in Wanganui as she never had children and her sister, mum's mother, Lillian Paul, was committed to Porirua Mental Institution when mum (Mary Duigan) was 3 and she stayed committed until she died. I remember Grace and May. I am interested in the Duigan family of Wanganui. Joseph Paul would be my Great Grandfather. I have a photo of him.

Whoops, I made a typo. Evelyn died 29.1.72. Not 74.
