WALTER's OBITUARY

The death occurred early on Saturday morning, at the residence of his daughter, Mrs W. T. Stewart, Arapaepae Road, Levin, of an old resident of Horowhenua and Wairarapa districts in the person of Mr Walter E. Axup. The deceased gentleman, who was in his 76th year, was born at Abingdon, England. On September 26th 1859, the late Mr Axup came to New Zealand as a boy, landing in Wellington from the sailing vessel "Ben Ledi" on May 15th, 1877. After a considerable number of years spent on the farm of his father, Mr Henry Axup, at Waverley, he took up farm management on behalf of Mr Carlile, of Woodville, and a few years later was called upon to take over the management of the Cotter Estate, in Southern Wairarapa, which position he retained for over 14 years, superintending extensive ploughing operations with the first steam ploughing equipment introduced into the North Island, in the country surrounding Tauherenikau and Greytown.
Mr Axup then carried out farming operations in his own interests at Rata, in the Marton district, for a period of six years, but was obliged to discontinue owing to ill health. A short while later, in 1907, he again took up farm management, this time in the interests of Mr H. V. Hammond, controlling his Ohau property "Tangimona" for a period of eight years, following which he managed the McDonald Estate, Heatherlea, for four years. His next move was to Waikanae, where he assumed management of Messrs Higginson Bros' property. His last position was on the East Coast, near masterton, on the property of Mr and Mrs J. B. Moodue, retiring six years ago with his wife to Featherston, where they resided until about five months ago, when they came to Levin.
In 1889, Mr Axup was married to Maria Amelia Ross, of Woodville, a member of the family of one of the earliest settlers in that district. He is survived by his wife, two sister, Mrs H. Wastney of Auckland and Mrs J. Hurly of Featherston, and one daughter, Mrs W. T. Stewart, of Levin

the new 'Vote'/'Score' feature

hi Scott,
Is there any chance of enabling us to see who 'votes "up" (likes) our comments on posts? similar to how it shows on FB. This would show who is interested in the subject, who was helped by the comment or who agrees with what was said. This could lead to 2 or more of us working together to reach a solution

Obviously, this would not be popular for those giving a "down" vote' but in fact, a down vote is of little help on any comment if we don't know exactly what it is about the comment they do not agree with

Murder/Suicide during Honeymoon, PALMERSTON NORTH - 1899

Martha BOUTS (1845-1910) married in 1874 to
Police Sergeant John PRICE (1834-1891)
* John was from Wales and a non-commissioned officer who served through the Indian Mutiny. He came to NZ about 1860 and was in the NZ Police force for many years serving in Canterbury & Auckland.
JOHN died in Cole St., Masterton 10 June 1891 aged 57 from acute bronchitis & is buried Old Ground at Archer Street
John's Obituary
MARTHA died in Masterton 17 Oct 1910 aged 65 & is buried Archer Street

JOHN & MARTHA had 4 known children:
*1875 - 1876 Florence Llewellyn Price
- Florence died 4 Feb 1876 aged 5 months and is buried in Bolton St cemetery, Wellington

*1876 - 1962 Harvey 'Harry' Llewelyn Price
-- Harry married Lillian SIDDERS in 1911
- Lillian was from Kent, England. She was in a de facto relationship with Horace Edwin FERNEE who was still married to Emma Rhoda Palmer (1859-1936). They had a son Horace George Fernee (1896-1963). Lillian emigrated to NZ with 12 year old Horace in 1908. De facto Horace stayed in England and remarried in 1916 after a divorce from Emma.
* Harry & Lillian lived next door to his mother, Martha Price, at 28 Sussex Street, Masterton when Horace served as Private 23818 in WWI
- Harry died 5 July 1962 aged 81 and is buried Archer Street cemetery, Masterton

*1878 - MARTHA 'Minnie' PRICE
-- Minnie married William Daniel McKAIN, 4 Jan 1899 at 30 Sussex St (against her mother's wishes who thought she could do better than a brushmaker). William was 1 of 15 children of Daniel McKain & Amelia O'Hara, confectioners in Lower Hutt ... see STORY BELOW

*1880 - 1932 Edward Thomas Price
-- Edward married Helen May EXELL (1880-1963) in 1907
- Edward died 11 Dec 1932 aged 52 and is buried Archer Street cemetery, Masterton


The MURDER/SUICIDE of Minnie Price & William McKain
Minnie Price married William Daniel McKain, 4 Jan 1899
After a month long honeymoon in Dunedin, Christchurch & Auckland, William and Minnie returned to Wellington where William pawned his violin in Johnsonville to buy a ticket to Palmerston North.
They arrived there on Valentine's Day and were staying at the Royal Hotel. Three nights later, on Friday 17 Feb, William was heard in his room dictating a letter for Minnie to write (this later showed premeditation, the contents in link below)
At 4:20 next morning William shot Minnie with a revolver whilst she was in bed. Twenty minutes later he shot her again. An hour and 20 minutes later he turned the gun on himself
-- Minnie was 20 & William was 22 --
more on the Palmerston North tragedy

What is amazing to me and obviously many at the time, is why, when the other hotel guests heard the first and subsequent shots, was something not done at 4:20am?? Instead, later that morning when the housekeeper was unable to get in their room she called the police

Against his wishes in the letter, William is buried at Taita & Minnie is buried at Masterton.
... The Murder/Suicide Letter
