* ... a message on 15-1-2011 from Martin K... asking if it could be verified if Alfred James Marshall was really born in Taita. As most of his siblings were born in Johnsonville it does seem a little strange. Can you please help ??

Do you know of Alfred James Marshall and his wife Agnes O'Brien and their children (I have one)

journal bumped up as help would be appreciated in finding the birth place of Alfred James Marshall (born 1866)

I have that he was born in Taita, New Zealand.
Martin K. would like this verified as it seems more likely that he was born in Johnsonville, Wellington (20km south)

Please leave a comment below if you can help

Hi, I Googled Mary Ann Mosley just to see what would come up, and this page popped up.
Regarding Anna Maria Marshall, I have the following info for you. She married
Frederick Westbury, and they had at least one child, Albert Thomas Frank Westbury. Albert, in turn, married Edna Lillian Mahood, and their son, Clive Malcolm Westbury married Elizabeth Pauline Gould, who is my second cousin.

Hope this help you somewhat.
