in the EVENING POST on 6 July 1888
... On 1st July, at Wellington, Ellen, younest and dearly beloved daughter of Michael Miscall, of Paekakariki, aged 17 years (birth year of about 1871); deeply regretted. R.I.P. - Dunedin, Wanganui and Victorian papers please copy (youngest daughter suggests other daughters, no mention of Agnes although not all that unusual back then)

in the EVENING POST on 13 June 1898 Michael amd Agnes were in the Wellington Magistrate's Court ...
After a long hearing on information brought by Agnes Miscall against Michael Miscall, of having failed to provide maintenance for herself and two children, was dismissed

Agnes died 27 December 1900 in Wellington Hospital aged 56 (birth date of about 1844), she is buried Plot 83 L at Karori cemetery, Wellington
She had been living at 11 Jessie street, Te Aro, Wellington. This was a 7 bedroom dwelling that took in boarders/tenants, let out rooms. Agnes appears to have been the owner. Her estate was placed under the charge of the Public Trustee in January 1901
7 Jan 1901 TO-MORROW on the premises, No 11, Jessie-street, Tuesday, 8th January, 1901, at 1.30 o'clock. MacDonald, Wilson and Co., are favoured with instructions from J. W. Poynton, Esq., Public Trustee, in the estate of Mrs Miscalls, deceased, to sell by public auction, the whole of the household furniture, etc., the contents of 6 bedrooms, kitchen, washhouse, etc. comprising -
Linoleums, hearthrugs, double and single iron bedsteads, spring mattrasses (sic), chest drawers, toilet glasses, Austrian chairs, fenders, fireirons, couches, pictures, ornaments, bedding, lot bed linen, carpets, sideboard, kapoc mattrasses, blankets, toilet sets, dressing tables, curtains, poles and rings, stair oilcloth, strips carpets, round table, kitchen tables, kitchen requisites, cutlery, spoons, forks, etc., lot crockery, small cupboard, baths, buckets, large boiler, gardn tools, etc., etc., etc.,

James was working in the cheese factory in Carterton when he was balloted for war. His next of kin was his friend, D. Hooper of South Carterton. He married Daisy Clara Hooper, the 9th of 14 known children of William John HOOPER & Charlotte COMPTON, Farmers in Carterton

but I procrastinate ...
so Ellen was born about 1871 & James was born in 1890
Agnes married 3 times, Michael being her 3rd husband, so Michael may also have been married before, I have not yet found out all the children

there is a clue in the death notice of Ellen ...
the towns they lived in will be mentioned at the end of the notice so as those papers will insert the said notice in their editions that old freinds and acquaintances in those towns might also read it
