What day of the year has the most BIRTHS ?

What date of the year, I wondered, is the one that the most babies are born on

- I eventually found it
the date of the year with the MOST births is:
5th OCTOBER

the date of the year with the LEAST births is
2nd MAY

They think the most births is because of the prior New Years Eve !!!
- however, using this conception date calculator
... conception would be between 6 - 12 January

No one seems to know why 22 May has the least !!!
- using above calculator the estimated
... conception date would be between 23 - 29 August of previous year

searching for more info on Jack Wilmot FINK for a reader, Emily

Where is GEORGE AVERY buried ? (1852-1907)

Where is George Avery buried?

He was born 17 October 1852 in Taita, Lower Hutt
- a son of George AVERY & Charlotte TANDY
He married Sarah SCRIMSHAW in 1876
He farmed in Pahiatua for a number of years then moved to Kaponga, in Taranaki, where he owned the Commercial Hotel about 1900 - he was also a butcher there
He and Sarah had 12 children
In 1904 he moved to Hikutaia, near Thames
He died 26 July 1907

If you read his profile here GEORGE AVERY you will see a newspaper article of how he was buried back on Kaponga...

Because I could not find his grave site I have been in contact with the Council in Kaponga and they told me he is not there !! nor are his two sons Alfred and Hugh although they are reported to have been buried there
... which does not mean they are not there


Because he was a very prominent business man in the town and was given a large farewell with expensive gifts it seemed to me that he should have some record, headstone etc - but no

I thought maybe the town of Kaponga just had a service for him in remembrance BUT the article names the pall bearers ...
* W. BARLEYMAN
* D. BRIGGS
* C. CROWLEY
* J. CROWLEY
* D. HENNISSEY
* T. MURPHY
His wife, Sarah, died 7 years later and she is buried in Omahu Cemetery in a double plot - the plot was "used" when she was interred but George is not with her there
- so it is not making any sense to me

Can you please help
