Virginia Elfreda 1902-1923

Fred, Rosina and their daughters Ethel and Virginia Elfreda are all buried in Pukekohe Cemetery.

Is anyone else related to these Colhouns?

Thanks for that Marion.
Andrew was my ggg grandfather.
I had seen several Colhoun males on NZ BDM searches with the middle name of Smith and speculated that some or all of them might be Rosina's siblings since their mother's maiden name was Smith.
