Hello marls,
There are a lot of SALTERs in New Zealand, from down south to the Upper Hutt and up to Auckland.
If you have more info on where the ones you are looking for were living I will help find them.

There is a site at this link
[http://boards.ancestry.myfamily.com/surnames.warren/2699/mb.ashx?pnt=1] Mary Ann Salter[/uel] from NSW who married John Warren.

There are other sites - just let me know...

There are lots of "salter" graves in Victoria, Australia. If you go to the Bendigo Cemeteries Trust you can get a list. I have just started to search this branch of my husbands family tree.

To ShelbyOz. We are related. We are second cousins. Your father was my cousin. I knew your family very well and often had holidays with them at Port Stephens. No doubt you have a copy of the book "Irish on The Rocks" detailing the family history. I was involved in the research of the book. I can be located via Facebook. My mother (Nita Harriet) was your grandfather George's sister. I was the youngest in her family. You should be able to track me down with that info if you are minded to. Regards
