hi kmyron,
He was buried in Plot 150, Sec 1 at Taruheru cemetery on 29 May 1934.
The headstone reads ...
In loving memory of
JOSEPH EDWARD NEWTON
died 27 May 1934 aged 81 years
and
ELIZABETH NEWTON
died 30 August 1949 aged 92 year

There are other family members there too, which you may (or may not) recognise
In memory of
EDWARD PREBELL NEWTON
who died 4 September 1915 aged 87 years.
At rest.
In loving memory of RAWIRI WILLIAM
second son of J & J NEWTON
who died 3 July 1905 aged 11 weeks.
In loving memory of LINDSAY HENRY,
third son of J & J NEWTON, who died at Waipiro Bay, 26 August 1916 aged 8 years.
God needed one more angel child amongst his shining band, and so he bent with loving smile and clasped our darling’s hand
Pop - Dad - Rita

* Rawiri was a son of Joseph Newton & Jane/June Martin and a grandson of Joseph & Bridget
* Edward Prebble Newton, born about 1828, was the father of 'your' Joseph Edward Newton
* Joseph & Jane also had a Joseph Edward Prebble Newton (1903-1996) so the name continued down the line

ah, I see you found this post on here ..
looking for Newtons, John Henry and Edward Prebble and already have a lot of info. Maybe just need more on Bridget?

Bridget died 16 Sep 1896 aged 39 in Christchurch, after a long and painful illness. They were living in Islington, Christchurch at that time.

and who is ELIZABETH NEWTON
died 30 August 1949 aged 92 year ?

I don't have her

by ngairedith on 2018-02-07 22:48:58

well I was assuming, because she is the wife of Joseph Edward, that she is the Elizabeth Hollard that you mentioned. The birth year is right as well

by kmyron on 2018-02-07 22:51:28

ah yes of course, thanks
