* the QUESTION was asked by shelley on 25 Jan 2012
... "I wonder if you could help me? I had a cutting from a NZ newspaper which has been lost, it was about a shipwreck in NZ where my GG grandmother saved people and was carried to A town? by one of the young sailors. Her 1st name would have been Sophia, either Noah or Rich or Hickman depending on the time, late 1800's/early 1900's. I am not sure if the name is for gg or ggg gma, Sophia Rich or Sophia Noah, but I am inclined to think it's Rich, she was born 1862 and died 1942, my mum told me she was visiting a relative in NZ when the wreck happened, and she was not young as I remember reading the paper cutting, which mentioned her as a grandmother, apparently it was a very rocky area and not close to towns, not sure if it was east or west coast but I think it may be South Island"

from the site All On Board Behave Splendidly ... The Wimmera's Captain, Herbert Kells, remained at his post until the last along with the Chief Officer Mr A J Nicol and the Chief Steward Mr H Verge. These and 23 others lost their lives on the ship. The lifeboats were launched but one was swamped and a second stove in leaving the remainder to rescue the surviving 125 passengers and crew. Once launched and at the mercy of wind and current the lifeboats drifted far and wide. Four boats containing eighty four survivors landed at Tom Bowline Bay near the very tip of the North Island in the evening of July 27th. On the afternoon of this day a fifth boat came ashore at Taemaro, four miles east of Mangonui while another boat was blown clear of North Cape and drifted down the coast to a landing at Kaiamou Beach
