Moffitt, Ernest James, details after mid 1925 please Australia only
Ernest James Moffitt was born in NZ in 1897. We have all life details up to mid 1925, but after that there is a complete blank, with one or two people believing that he must have drowned, but there are no details of a drowning or of a death in this country.
Recently we have been told that there was a marriage in Australia in 1944 between an Ernest James Moffitt and a Spooner. There is no son of that name born to his Australian uncles, James and John who both appear in these journals. It is possible though that one of John Moffitt's sons could have had a son of that name who would be old enough to marry in 1944.
Ernest was known to his siblings as Pete, but he may have dropped that name. It was a family thing. His mother was dead, and his siblings had scattered, away form his home town of Waikaia, in Southland. He belonged to the George Moffitt line in New Zealand. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
