Count Frederick Benjamin Duvall 1845-1888

I'm interested in this chap and four other members of his family for no other reason than they are buried "next door" to my gt grandmother and sister in Waikumete Cemetery. Just curious!

James Walter COLLINS, 31 Crispe Street, Preston, Victoria, Australia

I'm looking for descendants of James Walter COLLINS born in England 1876 and died in Victoria 16 July 1960. His children are: Violet Lillian COLLINS, Ivy May COLLINS, Mabel Rose COLLINS, Myra Ruby Dellina COLLINS, Margaret Elizabeth Ann COLLINS, James Walter Arthur COLLINS, Alice Vera Hazel COLLINSand Norma Jean COLLINS. His wife was Mabel Rose Dellina WADE.

As the above names are taken from James' death cert it is likely that some are spelt wrong. His wife is referred to as Mabel Rose, Dellina Mabel and Mabel Dellina in various documents.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Looking for descendants of John CLIFF and also of his sister MARTHA Cliff,...

Looking for descendants of John CLIFF and also of his sister Martha CLIFF, children of my gt grandfather George CLIFF (1830-1897) and Jane THOMPSON (1861-1882)of Winchester, Canterbury New Zealand. George was born in Barnby Dun, Yorkshire and Jane was born in Scotland. Jane and George are buried in the Temuka Cemetery.

John CLIFF was born in 1881 and farmed in the Temuka district. I believe he married Ellen BLACKLER and had three children, Adelaide, Esmeralda and John Garland Keith CLIFF.

Martha CLIFF was born in 1882 and I believe that she married Thomas Charles PALLISER. They had three children, George, Charles and John.

Jane Thompson was my gt grandfather George CLIFF'S first wife....my gt grandmother Mary Violetta TODD was his third wife.

Any help would be very much appreciated.
