Where is WILLIAM GREATHEAD buried ??

WILLIAM GREATHEAD was born in Yorkshire, England in 1837.
He emigrated with his parents to New Zealand in 1842.
He married Mary Ticehurst in 1861 in the Wairarapa town of Greytown.
He had 10 children (I'm still working on them)
He died on the 20th July 1895 in Carterton, New Zealand but I cannot find him buried in either the Clareville Cemetery in Carterton or the Masterton Lawn Cemetery.
Do you know anything about William? and where he is buried?

Do you know anything about the GREATHEAD twins, JESSIE & BESSIE b.1871

They twins were born in Masterton, New Zealand on 17 April 1871 to WILLIAM GREATHEAD and Mary Ticehurst.
Bessie married Harry/Henry Rees - I would like to know more about him and their children.
Jessie married someone called ? Scerle - I cannot even find his first name so anything would be of help

IRVINE born GAVIESIDE SCOTLAND

I would like as much information as possible on the Irvines.
There were at least 4 brothers and probably sisters but I have no info on that yet.
I need help with these people also:
One Irvine, William, emigrated to New Zealand - not yet found on which ship and with who ... he had a son named Gerald who was born in 1917 in Scotland
One was Baldwin who apparently emigrated to Australia but cannot find ANYTHING on a Baldwin Irvine.
Two Irvine brothers remained in Scotland.
One of these brothers had the son Andy Irvine the 'famous' fullback international rugby player born Sept. 1951 - would like to know which brother was his father.

HOLTER into New Zealand - early/mid 1880s

I cannot find any HOLTER family members emigrating INTO New Zealand on any ships lists and yet they are here (settled in the Gisborne districts)

I can find families of HOLDER coming in - maybe the name was changed after that

Can you help please on the immigration into NZ of any Holters, or do you know for sure that their name was changed??

GALLAGHER - O'DONNELL married about 1885 - probably County Tyrone

All I know is that John Gallagher was a 'mill worker' in County Tyrone and that he married Catherine O'Donnell
- they had 9 children.
The first child born about 1885 and the last about 1896

They emigrated to New Zealand between 1910-1920 but I cannot find any ship passenger lists after the 1800s - do you know where I can look for these?

They went to the West Coast of the South Island as Catherine had a sister already there

A son, Patrick Gallagher, married Kathleen Kearney in Christchurch and had his 2 children in the South Island

Eventually all the 'children' of John and Catherine settled in the North Island, mostly around the Wellington area.

See also the journal on this site titled GALLAGHER-KEARNEY

Any information on these people would be greatly appreciated.

GALLAGHER - KEARNEY County Tyrone to New Zealand 1920s

I am seeking ANY information on Patrick (Patsy) Gallagher born about 1888 in Ireland
- He married Kathleen KEARNEY around 1923 in New Zealand.

They emigrated on different ships as she was determined to marry him and so followed him to New Zealand

Would really like to know on which ships they travelled and in what years

Kathleen was born around 1896 in Ireland and died 30-8-1941 in Wellington.
- Both are buried in Karori Cemetery

Believed they went to New Zealand in the early 1900s or even late 1890s. They lived in Christchurch before moving to Wellington

- Their two children Catherine (Peggy) and Charles (Carl) were born in the South Island - Peggy in Reefton and Carl in Christchurch but spent their youth onwards in the Wellington and Wairarapa areas

Peggy married Gerald Irvine
Carl married Ngaire Peck

Patrick was killed on Christmas Eve 1948 while crossing the railway line in the Hutt or Wellington and was hit by a train

Kathleen had died aged 45, 7 years previously

So far the siblings I have of Paddy's are:

Sara "Cis" Gallagher
- born about 1886 in County Tyrone
- married Eric Charles
- died 1968 aged 78

Joseph "Joe" Gallagher
- born 1887 in County Tyrone
- he had a wooden leg as a result of a train or tram accident
- nothing else known

Isobel "Bell" Gallagher
- born 1890 in Sion Mills, County Tyrone
- married Jack Twamley
- died in 1965 aged 75

Mary Gallagher
- nothing known

James Gallagher
- born in County Tyrone
- died in Wanganui
- black sheep of the family, nobody spoke of him :)

William "Bill" Gallagher
- born about 1895 in Ireland
- believe he remained a bachelor
- died in 1970 in Christchurch aged 75
- buried in Bromley cemetery, Christchurch

Catherine/Kathleen "At" Gallagher
- born about 1896 in County Tyrone
- married George CROWLEY
- married Michael "Mick" CAMPBELL, he died in the Hutt 1969
-At and her sister Cis were taylors, had a shop Willis St Wellington

John "Jack" Gallagher
- born about 1897 in County Tyrone
- nothing known

Do you have any information on this family - I would appreciate any help, ESPECIALLY their immigration ship and dates - sometime prior to 1823

Looking for any info on IDA MYRTLE HARRIS who married KENNETH EDWARDS in NZ

Ida was the daughter - the only child I have found at this time - of Arthur Harris and LeBanna Annica Bernard who married possibly in the Wairarapa.
You can see them here on my tree ARTHUR HARRIS and hopefully can help.
I would also love to know more on her mother and where she was from.
