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.

Evening Post, 26 April 1899 DEATH of WILLIAM'S FATHER
We regret to announce the death of Captain Hercules Anderson, father of Dr Anderson, of this town, which occurred this morning at an early hour at his residence in Walter Street. Captain Anderson, who has been marine superintendent of the Shaw, Savill and Albion Shipping Company for the last fifteen years, was well-known in Dunedin and Christchurch, his home being situated at the latter place, He had been in ill-health for some time past and only arrived in Blenheim at the beginning of this month, having been ordered by his medical adviser to make his home here for a time in the hope that the change would be for the benefit of his health. Up to within a few months ago Captain Anderson enjoyed the very best of health, and he had rarely experienced a day's illness. Recently, however, a form of liver complaint had made serious inroads on his constitution, and it was to seek medical advice from his son, Dr Anderson, who is in partnership with Dr Cleghorn in Blenheim, that he was visiting that place. The family will have much sympathy in their bereavement.

Captain Hercules Anderson, Marine Superintendent to the Shaw, Saville and Albion Company, died early this morning at the age of 55. Deceased arrived in Blenheim at the beginning of the month intending to reside here for some time for the benefit of his health.
The news of the death of Captain H. Anderson this morning came as a shock to his many friends in shipping and commercial circles. Up to within a few months ago Captain Anderson enjoyed the very best health, and he had rarely experienced a day's illness. Recently, however, a form of liver complaint had made serious inroads on his constitution, and it was to seek medical advice from his son, Dr Anderson, who is in partnership with Dr. Cleghorn in Blenheim, that he was visiting that place. A few days ago he was reported to have much improved in health after a serious operation. The deceased was a native of Forfarshire, and had served his apprenticeship to the sea on the coast of Scotland. He was employed in the Albion Shipping Co's service until it merged into the present Shaw, Savill and Albion line, and in the latter's employ had command of a number of vessels. Later, his employers recognising his business and other abilities, appointed him to succeed the late Captain Anderson was a good seaman, thoroughly well liked and trusted by his employers and those serving below him, and respected by the public with whom he daily came in contact.
His wife pre-deceased him many years ago. He leaves three sons and two daughters. Captain Anderson and his family made a trip to the Old Country during the Queen's Jubilee year, and he returned then apparently in good health.

Dr Anderson of Blenhein and Dr Morrison of Greymouth will act as Health Officers in their districts under the superintendence of Dr Frengely

Nelson Evening Mail, 27 May 1903 WILLIAM as Acting District Health Officer
Dr Frengley (District Health Officer for Nelson-Westland-Marlborough Districts) who is at present in Wellington, is of the opinion that the consumption of oysters in this locality, has added largely to the cause of so many cases of enteric fever in Nelson. He therefore instructed Dr Anderson (Acting District Health Officer for Marlborough) to investigate the storage-beds of oysters which are on the Boulder Bank within the Nelson Harbour. Dr Anderson comes to the conclusion that the amount of contamination, which was found amongst these oyster localities, is quite enough to convince him that the oysters themselves have been receiving foul matter
