Looking for descendents of Susan Cecilia De Muth (nee Kenny) of New Zealand

Query by GWhiz

James Hoare Kenny of Timaru, New Zealand, married Elizabeth Curtin and had a number of children. We cannot find yet whether they married in Australia or New Zealand.

James was born in Ireland, we believe, and lived in Australia before moving to Timaru where he was a sheep farmer.

I know the names of three of his children, but do not know the names of the others:
* THOMAS GILBERT KENNY(born around 1866, who married HARRIET CONNOR in January 1892 in Dunedin. They moved to Bondi, Australia, where Thomas opened a butcher shop. They adopted a daughter, Doreen Mavis (nee Davison), around 1917.
* AUSTIN JAMES KENNY, who married MARY CONNOLLY. Austin opened a butcher shop in Paddington, Sydney, which is not far away from Bondi. One of Austin and Mary's children was THOMAS JAMES BEDE KENNY, who won the Victoria Cross for conspicuous bravery in France during World War I.
* SUSAN CECILIA KENNY, who married JOHN DE MUTH in New Zealand in 1892. I know little about this marriage, and only know that Susan published a Death Notice for Thomas Gilbert when he died on 1 April 1919 in Sydney.

We would love to hear from anyone who is a descendant of either Austin James or Susan, to sharetogether the limited information we have so far. We would particularly love to see any photos. :-)
