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

Emma Stent married my great grandmother's brother and I have just been doing a research on all the women of that family.
I came across this very interesting write up about her father CAPTAIN JAMES HAYTER JACKSON who was one of the first 50 people to emigrate to New Zealand and he set up a whaling station in Marlborough. When he first arrived he spent the early years living with the famous maori chief Te Rauparaha.
BUT, for me, even more interesting is that Emma, his daughter, the woman I was researching, married twice - first marriage (to John Lynds who died in Australia somewhere) she had 4 children to.
The second marriage to Charles Stent she had another 16 CHILDREN TO !!! - (actually 10, see link below)
3 years on and the above info has now been amended after much research and HEAPS of help from Malcolm - read here: Emma JACKSON-LYNDS

WHIM CREEK HOTELS
ALLEGATIONS OF UNSUITABLENESS
- Roebourne, Spet 4
In the Licensing Court on Monday William John HENDERSON and Thomas Wrixon CONWAY, the licensees respectively of the Whim Creek and Federal Hotels, Whim Creek, were called on to show cause why their licences should not be cancelled for not keeping their hotels up to the standard required by the Act.
The evidence of the police went to show that the premises were unsuitable. There was no accommodation and the buildings were dirty. The walls of the rooms were only eight feet high. Women arriving at Whim Creek had to sit up all night on the verandah opposite the police station, while children slept in the building.
Constable GROWDEN was asked what he would suggest to improve the places, and he replied that a fire-stick would be the best thing.
The defence was a general denial of the allegations. The reason that no money was spent in improvements was that the licensees were saving money with which to build new premises.
Mr DAVIES, who appeared for the licensees, stated that it seemed to him that the reason or the prosecution was to clear the way for a State Hotel, a petition for the provision of which had been prepared.
Corporal FOULKES applied for the cancellation of the licenses.
The Court decided to proceed to Whim Creek to inspect the premises and adjourned the furhter hearing sine die.
Mr SLEEMAN, the manager of the West Pilbarra Trading and Finance Company, said that the material for a new hotel was on the way from England
