Laurenson in Samoa
James LAURENSON b1834 Shetland, died 1884 Apia, Samoa. He married twice, Agnes HANLIN b1938, d1890 in Hampden, NZ. Second wife Mary Ta'itua MARSHALL, b1860, d1932 in Apia.
First 8 kids born in NZ, last 2 in Samoa.
I am interested in connecting with people who have studied this branch. James' father is Fleming LAURENSON of Lerwick, Shetland and is my 3G grandfather. His daughter Grace Margaret LAURENSON, b1931, d1895 married James ROBERTSON and settled in Waianakarua area, south of Oamarun.
The Samoa connection intrigues me and i can see that there are other names in there that have migrated to NZ over time such as KOHLHASE.
Keen to hear from you.
