Samuel TATHAM of the Wairarapa, New Zealand

Journal by ngairedith

Samuel Tatham was born in about 1857
- research continuing on where he was born and who his parents were
- he married Jane GRAHAM (1854-1937) in 1881
- she was born in Australia
- he died on the 2nd February 1923
- he is buried in the Old Gorge Cemetery in Woodville

- Samuel & Jane had a son, John Graham (he used his mothers surname)
- In 1937 he was living in Ohakune

- a daughter, Lillias married Charles KERR and lived in Rotorua until 1937 after then Lillias was a widow who lived in Omanawa Falls, Tauranga

Samuel was a horse trainer in Parkvale, Carterton, Wairarapa in 1905
It is possible Jane moved to Tauranga to be near/with her daughter Lillias after Samuel died.
Jane died 14 years after Samuel
