Feilding Star, 28 March 1912 WEDDING of William James Shannon
A wedding possessing all the elements of interest, fashion and beauty was celebrated at St John's Church this afternoon, when two of the oldest and best known families of the district were connected by the marrimonial alliance of two respective members of the younger generation.

The bridegroom was Mr William James Shannon, second son of Mr G. V. Shannon, of "The Totaras," Waituna, and on this the day of his great happiness he was surrounded by a host of relatives and friends to wish him the best of good luck as he passed from the loneliness of bachelordom and took unto himself a wife.
The bride, Miss Jean Bruce, youngest daughter of Mrs A. Bruce, of Denbigh street, Feilding, has resided for the past five or six years in Feilding, having come here with her mother from the Halcombe district, and she is one of Feilding's most beautiful and most popular young ladies. Like the groom, therefore, she also entered her married life amidst an assemblage of relatives, friends, and well-wishers who were all eager to give her as happy a wedding as lay in their power.

The ceremony was performed at St John's Church, which was thronged with a deeply interested congregation. The Rev G. F. Mayo, vicar of the Kiwitea Parchial District, assisted by the Rev A. S. Innes Jones, conducted the sacred rite.

The bride, who looked surpassingly beautiful, was adorned in a dress of soft white liberty satin, veiled with marquisette, and tunic edged with Limerick lace, and caught up at the side with a large satin rose; square train daintily embroidered with pearls in true lovers' knots. The bodice was trimmed with a fichu of Limerick lace and pearls, and finished with a spray of orange blossoms. A glorious veil of Limerick lace was surmounted with a dainty mob cap of tulle edged with orange blossoms. The bride carried a lovely shower bouwuet, and wore the bridegroom's present - a ruby, diamond and sapphire butterfly - in the corsage.

Miss Elsie Bruce (cousin of the bride) was the maid of honour, and the other bridesmaids were, Miss Vera McBeth (niece of the groom) and Miss Irene Prior. All three were quaintly dressed in pale grey satin veiled with pale grey ninon. The tunics were trimmed with three rows of ruching caught at each row with grey and pink ninon roses. and finished with dainty bead trimming. The bodices were finished with ninon fichus edged with ruching and caught with a large pink rose.

She wore large black pom hats, the crown swathed with ostrich feather, and caught with a single pink rose. Each maid had a black velvet neck band and pearl and turquoise neck slide, the gift of the groom, and carried little posies of pink roses and grey tulle.

Mr Arnold Shannon (cousin) supported the groom as best man, and the groomsmen were Messrs Cyril Blundell (Wellington) and Keith Smith (Marton).

The bride was given away her her uncle, Mr J. Bruce (Cheltenham).

This is the eighth marriage of Mr and Mrs G. V. Shannon's sons and daughters.
After the ceremony a reception was held at the residence of the bride's mother, where the customary expressions of goodwill were extended to mr and Mrs Shannon. The happy couple were to leave later by motor car for Wanganui, en route to Auckland and Sydney, where they will spend the honeymoon.

The bride's travelling dress was a saxe blue costume, with tagel straw hat of a lighter shade with grey and blue wings. A set of black fox furs complete a most becoming toilette.

Included in the very large collection of wedding presents were several from relatives in England and Ireland

Southland Times, 29 October 1892
A GHASTLY DISCOVERY
Whilst climbing about on a rocky bank of Deep Stream today two young ladies discovered the remains of a man lying face downwards on a ledge about eight feet above the river. He had evidently met his death by falling over the cliff as the rock above had been stripped of grass, The body had evidently been in there for some months as hawks and rats had completely denuded the body of flesh. The body is supposed to be that of Cummock, an engineer who left the quartz reef in the locality some months ago and has not since been heard of. In the absence of the police the pockets were not examined. At the inquest on the body the relatives failed to identify it as Cummock, the engineer, who has been missing for some months

Otago Daily Times, 3 November 1892
THE FATALITY ON THE OTAGO CENTRAL
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, There are three reasons why we (my uncle and myself) failed to identify the body found at Deep Stream. In the first place John Cummock lost the first joint of the second finger of the right hand when he was eight years of age; secondly, he has been bald-headed these last 15 years; thirdly, the boots that Cummock wore when he went missing were watertights. Now the man that was found at Deep Stream, had all the fingers on the right hand. He also had brown hair on the crown of his head to the length of over two inches, and in the third place this man had Balmoral boots on. Now how a coroner's jury came to give such a verdict after knowning these facts we cannot understand. We are, &c., GEORGE CUMMOCK, JAMES CUMMOCK

Timaru Herald, 26 June 1914
... William Begg Cummock pleaded guilty to the theft of an overcoat valued at 2 from the hall of the Timaru hotel. He asked to give evidence on oath, and in doing so said he was only a young man, twenty-seven years of age, but had had very little chance in life. His home had broken by when he was a lad, and he had been handed about from pillar to post ever since. He admitted that he had a pretty bad record for drunkenness and obscene language but this, he said, was the first time he had been guilty of dishonesty. He was only discharged from prison the previous day, after "doing" a fortnight for obscene language, and his stomach was not in very good order after it. He met some people he knew, who "shouted" for him, but would do nothing more. He was absolutely destitute, and with the drink he did not know what he was doing. He had a job to fo to if he got a chance. He had a letter to that effect.
Sub-Inspector Cruickshank asked if it was not a friend, of much the same character as accused, who had written him.
Accused said it was a friend of his, but he was not of the same character.
The Magistrate sentenced accused to one month's imprisonment and on a fine being asked for, fixed it at 40s. Time to pay was asked for, but refused.

EUGENE LOUIS LELIEVRE
An old and respected settler of Banks Peninsula passed away early on Wednesday morning in the person of Mr E. L. Lelievre, of Benoit street, Akaroa, who has been ailing for some time. Mr Lelievre was born at Ville Dieu, Normandy, in 1836, and arrived in New Zealand in 1861, at the age of 25, having come out in the whaling ship 'Coulon Coeur' commanded by Captain Le Basse. On arrival he farmed for his cousin, the late Mr Francoist Lelievre. Later he was employed by the late Mr Waecherle to carry the mails to Pigeon Bay, where boats conveyed it on to Lyttelton. In the early days of the bush tracks his figure was a familiar one on the Pigeon Bay-Akaroa road. After leaving this work he again assisted the late Mr F. Lelievre in his farming, and then he bought the holding on the Long Bay road, where he farmed up to some ten years ago, when he retired, and lived in his residence in Benoit street. The late Mr Lelievre married his cousin, a daughter of the late Mr Francois Lelievre, and had a family of eighteen children, of whom thirteen are still living. He leaves a widow, three sons and ten daughters, eight of whom are married, and a very large number of grandchildren. He was of an industrious and kindly disposition, and made a good neighbour and friend, though he took little part in any public matters

* 1897 - Arthur Albert Moseley
Evening Post, 10 June 1898 - WELLINGTON DIVORCE COURT
Alice Maud Moseley v Harold C. Moseley, for dissolution of marriage from her husband at present residing in Taranaki. The object of the respondent defending the case was to retain the custody of the two children of the marriage, who had been, and were still, with him. The petitioner gave evidence of her marriage with the respondent before the Registrar at Wellington in March, 1892, and made general allegations of cruelty. She had been separated from her husband for nearly two years, and he was, she declared, now living with another woman. She did not intend to ask for the custody of the children as she was not in a position to maintain them. Therefore the suit might be regarded as practically undefended.

The weather was beautiful for the occasion of the celebration and there were about thirty guests present, all old friends of the family.
The rooms were decorated with red, white, and blue, and the tables with golden-coloured flowers, the flags of the Allies holding a prominent position in the centre of the table. There were two wedding cakes; one was given by their grandson, Archie Cooper, and the other was brought from Australia.
The Rev Mr Heron kindly officiated, giving a short address, and making reference to the high esteem in which Mr and Mrs Krieg were held by the community. Then he made the presentations, which were in the form of two beautifully bound combined church prayer-books and a silver cake dish, suitably inscribed, form the parishioners, and a purse of sovereigns from the family, also many other gifts.
Mr Gorrie proposed the health of the happy couple and family, the Rev Mr Heron proposed the health of the King, and Mrs Sharp (youngest daughter) responded on behalf of the parents and family.
The occasion ended with the singing of the doxology and the National Anthem.

Bethanien and later Bethany, 2km from Tanunda in the Barossa Valley, was established by a group of Lutheran migrants who arrived with Pastor Gotthard Daniel Frietzsche in 1841. Most of these 270 immigrants had come from Posen and Silesia. In 1842 nearly a hundred of this group of migrants were joined by other Lutherans, already living at Hahndorf, to establish the first village in the Barossa Valley on land the local Aborigines referred to as Taninda. About 2080 acres were leased, and later bought, from George Fife Angas to start their new venture, Bethany
