ANNA SOUTHEE was born about 1898 in Upper Hutt, New Zealand, daughter of George Southee b. 1864 in Wellington and Emma Hedges who was born 1871 in Chakrata, India
[George's parents had emigrated from Kent]
Anna married Adolph Adwin Amundsen in 1919 in Taihape - he was born ABOUT 1888, needs verifying yet, in Ormondville, Manawatu
[Adolph's parents were Amund Amundsen Moldusen b. 1841 in Norway and Elise Larsdatter Waalberget b. 1865 in Norway - they emigrated aboard the FRTTZ REUTER in 1875 to Napier, bound for Ormondville
Apparently Adolph and Anna had at least 10 children as at his death he was 'survived' by ten children
I would like information on these children to add to the above tree
