James & Mary Ann REDPATH, Settlers of New Zealand

There was a James and Mary Ann Redpath living in Rangiwahia in 1901 as per this article taken from Papers Past, from the New Zealand Free Lance dated 16th November 1901:

LAND TRANSFER ACT NOTICE
Application having been made to me for the issue of a provisional certificate of title in the name of MARY ANN REDPATH, wife of James Redpath, of Rangiwahia, Settler, for Section 79, Township of Rangiwahia, being the land comprised in certificate of title, Vol. 1 XVII., folio 35, and evidence having been lodged of the destruction of the said certificate of title, I hereby give notice that I will issue the provisional certificate of title as requested unless caveat be lodged forbidding the same on or before the 21st day of November, 1901.
- Dated this 6th day of November, 1901, at the Land Registry Office, Wellington. - W. STUART, District Land Registrar.

There is a Mary Ann Redpath buried in Plot 12 of the Old Gorge Cemetery, Woodville, on 25th January 1909.
She was aged 63 at the time of death which gives her a birthdate of 1846 - a 'settlers' age.
Rangiwahia is about 80km north of Woodville.
It MAY be the same one if you are researching this name ...
- I do not know where James Redpath is buried at this time
