Raymond WATTS Eketahuna & Palmerston Norh

Raymond Harold Watts was born 1914 in Nireaha, (9km west of Eketahuna in the Wairarapa), some say it is in the Manawatu, I lived in the area many years - I'm saying Wairarapa :)

His parents were, Harold Ernest WATTS (1881-1969), born in Wellington, died & buried in Palmerston North & Bertha Ellen Elizabeth DAYSH (1887-1970), born in Carterton, died & buried in Palmerston North

I only have 1 sibling at this time for Raymond, Myrtle Bertha Watts (1908-1997) who married Sydney Clinton SUTTON
