their known children:
* 1895 - 1967 William James Forsyth
* 1899 - 1957 Ada Elizabeth Forsyth
died: 6 February 1902 in Weber
Bush Advocate, 12 February 1902 FORSYTH - On 6th February, 1902, at Waipatiki, after a brief illness, Ellen Lydia, the dearly beloved wife of John J. Forsyth, in her 36th year. Deeply regretted. [Waipawa Mail please copy]
Bush Advocate, 12 February 1902 HOROEKA The death of Mrs Forsyth, which occurred suddenly last Thursday morning, at 3 o'clock, came as a great shock to her many friends. Late on Tuesday night, she complained to her husband of feeling faint and after retiring to rest she suffered great agony. The following day Dr Macallan was sent for, but the end could not be averted, and Mrs Forsyth passed away peacefully at the time stated above, death being due to heart disease. Very great sympathy is felt for Mr Forsyth in the great loss he has sustained. The deceased lady, who was in her 36th year, was born at Peckham, England, and arrived in Napier some 20 years ago. She will be greatly missed by her friends and by the settlers generally in the district, and her kindness and generosity, I am sure, will never be forgotten. All were heartily welcome under her roof, and her loving and amiable disposition caused her to become endeared to her many friends in the Province.
The funeral of the late Mrs Forsyth which took place at Weber on Friday, 7th inst., in the afternoon, was very largely attended, friends and relatives coming from far and wide to pay the last respects due to their esteemed friend. A great many beautiful wreaths and crosses were sent. Mr Forsyth desires me to thank all friends for the great kindness shown him in his sad bereavement

FORSYTH, John James - aged 44
died: 9 October 1902
Bush Advocate, 13 October 1902 FORSYTH - On Oct. 11th, at Napier Hospital, John James Forsyth, of Weber; aged 44 years. Deeply regretted
Bush Advocate, 13 October 1902 WEBER Coroner's Inquest J. Halligan, licensee of the Club Hotel, deposed that he knew the deceased, who had lately stayed at his hotel, and who was low-spirited on account of the loss of his wife ... The Jury returned a verdict that the deceased came by his death from the effects of a bullet wound, self-inflicted, while suffering from temporary insanity
Bush Advocate, 11 October 1902 The news of Mr Forsyth's death will cause widespread regret in this district. Deceased was one of the most prominent settlers in the Waipatiki district and was largely interested in public affairs, having for some time been a prominent member of the Weber Road Board. Mr Forsyth always aimed at doing his best to promote the welfare of the district in which he resided, and his labours were thoroughly appreciated by his fellow settlers. He was of a quiet, unassuming disposition, and was highly esteemed and respected by all with whom he came in contact. The deceased was undoubtedly a sterling settler, and his death will be mourned by a wide circle of relatives and friends. He leaves two children - a boy and girl, aged about eight and five years respectively, his wife predeceased him in February last
buried: Graves 1A & 2A, Block 3

Bush Advocate, 28 October 1908 The Weber-Waione dairy factory, which has been closed for the past year, has recently been purchased by Messrs J. B. MacEwan and Co., Mr W. Hales and Mr T. Hopcroft, who have re-opened the factory, and are carrying on the business as the Weber-Waione Dairy Company. The re-starting of the factory should prove of considerable benefit for the settlers in the Weber district. Owing to the satisfactory prices which are being obtained for dairy produce and the low prices ruling for wool, dairying will prove more remunerative than sheep-farming. The new proprietors are now paying 1d per lb more for butter-fat than was paid by the former company. With careful management they anticipate being able to pay out good prices and regain the confidence of the suppliers in the Weber district. The company have been fortunate in securing the services of Mr T. Hopcroft as manager. Mr Hopcroft has considerable experience in the manufacture of butter, and for three years acted as butter-maker for the late Mr T. L. Joll, at Okaiawa, Taranaki, whose annual output of butter amounted to over 800 tons annually
* Thomas Henry Hopcroft died 27 Nov 1933 aged 50 & buried Mangatera

(cemetery database has Harry WOODWARD aged 11 months)

died: 8 October 1897
Hawke's Bay Herald, 12 October 1897 The child of George Woodward, of Weber, died on Friday night. There was no doctor in attendance. The police think an inquest is desirable
Hawke's Bay Herald, 15 October 1897 WAIPAWA - An inquest was held at Weber before Mr S. Franklin, J.P., acting in the absence of the coroner, touching the death of Henry Woodward Thompson, aged 11 months. As this was the third illegitimate child in the family that had died during the last three years, the local Justices considered it necessary to hold an inquiry and to have a doctor's opinion as to the immediate cause of death. The following is a synopsis of the evidence:-
Mrs J. A. Thompson, the mother, said the child was taken ill on Saturday, 2nd October; seemed feverish, and thought it was teething. She gave it magnesia, which relieved it, but next day it got bad, apparently having a bad cold. She poulticed it and called in Mrs Pratt, a neighbor, on the Thursday, who approved of the course taken. Next day she called in Mrs Ryan, who said it was very bad with inflammation of the lungs, for which she administered cream and brandy, and the child died at 7.15 the same evening. She always looked after her children to the best of her ability, and could do no more for this. It was not true that she neglected her children. She took the child to a doctor at Danevirke last January, who said it was weak and suffering from English cholera; it was one of twins. She did not think the child was likely to die until Mrs Ryan came in, therefore did not send for the doctor. The evidence of Mrs Ryan and Mrs Pratt was to the same effect. Dr Riddell stated that in his opinion the child died from pneumonia; it was well nourished and was teething. The jury decided that death was due to natural causes, and desired further to state that on account of Dr Macallan's advice to Mrs Thompson in January last, relative to the child's illness, she should have called in medical assistance

THOMPSON, Isabella Andersen (nee COCHRANE) - aged 31
born: 1870 in Glasgow
She arrived in Hawkes Bay c1874 with her parents & brother Archibald Cochrane
died 13 February 1901 aged 31

NOTE Isabella had several illegitimate children to George Woodward but bore the name Thompson after her absent husband, James Nathan Thompson, whom she married in 1888
* re George Woodward of Weber ...
Hawke's Bay Herald, 17 November 1900 The following transfers were sanctioned:- Section 24, block 5, Weber, from George Woodward to M. Davitt
Evening Post, 5 September 1901 At the Palmerston North Police Court this morning, George Woodward was charged with the theft of £15 15s
(a 2009 equivalent of $2,401), the property of the Weber Road Board. Accused, who was clerk and foreman, was remanded to Dannevirke

VERNON, Mary Fannie - aged 36
died: 31 October 1908
buried: Grave 19B, Block 2
Bush Advocate, 5 November 1908 WEBER - We are very sorry to have to mention the loss Ti Tree has sustained by the death of Mrs Vernon. The settlers around there are so very neighborly and kind, that they had made Mr and Mrs Vernon feel quite at home among them, although they have not been long in the district. Mrs Vernon passed away peacefully on Saturday night. During her short illness, the doctors did all in their power, assisted by the kind offices of neighbors, but without avail. Quite a gloom was cast over our neighborhood by this sad termination. Very great sympathy is felt and shown towards Mr Vernon and his three children. The nearest cemetery is at Weber; the funeral rites were conducted according to the rites of the Church of England, in the presence of a large number of the settlers. Mr W. Roberts, of Weber, was the undertaker
NOTES
BDM has that Mary Fannie Vernon died 31 Oct 1908 but unfortunately the newspaper articles do not have an exact date of death nor a first name (for either of them)
The facts I found are:
* an Ivy & Gordon Vernon attended the Ti Tree Point School as in this
1909 Ti Tree Point Picnic
* .. "sympathy is felt and shown towards Mr Vernon and his three children"
* Bush Advocate, 9 July 1908 WEBER - Mr Vernon is in charge of the new stables at Ti Tree. The change of horses was made there on Monday, July 6th, for the first time. Mr Vernon has two children for Ti Tree School, bringing the roll number up so seven again
* The only 3 children born to one mother & with these names:
1901 - 1963 Iris Vernon (+ Conway Richard Charles Ferguson in 1921)
1903 - Gordon Vernon
1904 - Daisy Mona Vernon
They were children of Archibald & Maud Vernon ?
