Thank you soooo much for that. They are my grandparents. I was wondering if there was any information of Samuel Smyth & Mary Miller as to there parents or any records of their births in Ireland?

Samuel Smyth (1838-1912) was born about 1838 in Londonderry, Northern Ireland
Samuel died in Onehunga, Auckland

Samuel & Mary married in Onehunga, Auckland on 1 July 1875

Mary Miller (1851-1919) was born about 1851 in Omagh, County Tyrone
Mary died in Avondale, Auckland

Samuel & Mary are buried in Area 2 Block U Lot No 82A at Waikaraka cemetery with 2 of their daughters:
Lucy Hannah Smyth (1888-1957)
Elizabeth Ann Smyth (1879-1853)
- Elizabeth was the 2nd Elizabeth Ann. They had a daughter in 1878 whom they also named Elizabeth Ann Smyth, she died aged 1 month

The Waikaraka headstone reads:
In loving memory of Samuel beloved husband of Mary Smyth
died 10 July 1912 aged 74 yrs
Also Mary beloved wife of the above
died 20 Jan 1919 aged 66 yrs

on a separate plaque:
Elizabeth Ann Smyth 16-2-1953
Lucy Hannah Smyth 28-6-1957

That is all I have on Samuel & Mary at this time

You are amazing :-) thank you so much. It is really appreciated. They all seem to die so young in those days. Mind you after having some many children...
