looking for McGUORGUODALE - anywhere

Journal by ngairedith

Private John Cooper went to war on the 17th April 1915.
He was with the Otago Infantry Battalion 4th Reinforcements.
He left Wellington New Zealand for Gallipoli where he was killed in action on 27th September 1915

As is next of kin he had put: Mrs M. Cooper (mother) care of
M.A. McGuorguodale, Waikaka Valley, Otago, New Zealand

ALSO: Son of the late Jesse & Mary Ann Cooper of Waikuahuna Gorge

I cannot find one person of the name McGuorguodale anywhere in New Zealand - or for that matter, anywhere in the world - so the spelling must be wrong.

Do you know anyone in New Zealand with that name?
Do you know how it should have been spelt?

You will have some success if you check out the site called Papers Past. I typed in the name Jesse Cooper and immediately information came up.
Also you can have a good search on this site
