Looking for Lucia Leis (nee: Myszewski)

Query by Nece

I am looking for any information regarding the above relative/ancestor. Lucia (aka Lucianna/Lucy) came to NZ in 1876 aboard the 'Fritz Rueter'. I had been unable to locate any info about her until recently. I couldn't find any NZ BDM records for her so was 'stuck'. I have recently discovered that she settled around the Sydney, Australia region. I have found that she married a Alexander Leis in 1884 in Sydney, Australia & settled finally in/or around the Marrickville & Quirindi areas. I can find 3x children that Lucia & Alexander had, of which only 1x survived to adulthood.
Lucia's parents were Johannes Joseph Mathias Myszewski & Catharina Jendernalik, born 1852 in Krog, Starogard, Poland. She died in 1940 in Quirindi but I'm not sure where she is buried. Alexander was born c:1857 & died 1904. He is buried in the Quirindi General Cemetery.
Does anyone have/know any, information on how/why Lucia ended up in Australia when the rest of her family settled in New Zealand, if she had any further children, where she is buried, etc. Any info would be appreciated.
