~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

During my research around New Zealand I have found that all regions are very proud of their settlers and pioneers and have gone to great lengths, some of them, to preserve their history and provide us with as much information, photos etc as possible. I am going to have to admit to a personal favourite. Because of the obvious large amount of ongoing work that goes into the site:
KETE HOROWHENUA

NOTE
I have taken this opportunity to add extra helpful links for New Zealand researching, outside the "Regional Council Archives" usually written by people with an interest in the particular district. The following are mostly online archives, but of course, every town and city has wonderful libraries, museums etc. I have spent a lot of time at the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington and it is an amazing place.

LESLIE
On October 22, 1909 (accidentally by drowning), James Walter Stewart, youngest and dearly beloved son of George and Ellen Leslie; aged 5 years. Deeply regretted.

Otago Daily Times, 25 October 1909 A LITTLE BOY DROWNED
A little boy named Walter James Stuart Leslie, five years of age, was the victim of a sad fatality at the wharf on Friday afternoon.
After school that day Leslie met a companion named William Elliott, who is also of the same age, and with him went down to the Cross wharf. They played about for some time, and then deceased descended the steps, and whilst trying to gather some seaweed fell into the water. Elliott became frightened and ran home, saying nothing about the accident. As Leslie did not return home, his father, Mr Geo. Leslie, who resides in Filleul street, commenced a search, and ultimately came upon the body of the little fellow lying face downwards on the stones under the wharf. It was obvious that he had been washed there by the waves.
George Leslie, father of deceased, said the lad was just five years old. The boy had returned from school at dinner time on Friday, and was last seen by his mother at 2.30. At 6 o'clock his absence caused uneasiness, and a search which was instituted ws kept up unsuccessfully until midnight. At daylight witness resumed his search, and finally, about 5.15 he found the body of his son lying under the Cross wharf, near the Jetty street steps. The body was cold, and partially covered with water. The boy, a robust child, had been in the habit of going to the wharf alone. William Elliott, a companion of deceased, said that after coming away from school on Friday, he and Leslie, at the latter's invitation, went to the wharf "to look at the boats". On making his statement to the police, denied that he went to the wharf with Leslie, but ultimately confessed his part of the story to his mother. This witness's evidence was not very clear. He sobbed continually, and, evidently frightened by the proximity of the policemen, made some somewhat involved statements. Leslie, in trying to catch a piece of seaweed, had fallen into the water and witness ran away. It was after 4 o'clock when he arrived home.
An inquest will be held this morning. The Coroner: I can only come to the conclusion that the poor little chap was accidentally drowned.

* JAMES WALTER STEWART Leslie was a son of:
George LESLIE (1851-1930) born Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
