Margaret Mills (Best)
Born Tasmania, marriage certificate says born Burnie,Tasmania but most records say Emu Bay. Married Ernest Mills in 1906 in Woodville, NZ and when he died on Dec 15 1931 he was a widower. I can't find his grave or any record of Margaret's death. I would love to know where they are buried and any information about their lives. My mother is their great grandchild and she said Margaret was a nurse that rode a horse traveling around the HB coast near Porongahau. She said her mother Aileen Margaret Mills was raised by her Uncle Harry and Aunt Maria. Her sister Esther (I would also like info on her) was raised by someone else. Aileen didn't know her father very well. So Margaret Mills must have died early or devoted herself to nursing and was away from home? I wonder why she came to NZ or did Ernest go to Tasmania to find her? Her father was a Carter and Ernest was a Coach Driver so maybe that's the connection. Any help much appreciated, thanks Kerry

My maiden name is Feck which used to be Fick and before that Fiche. My mother's name is Aileen Redward and her mothers name was Aileen Mills. I've discovered our family tree has Mortensen's, Lynch's, Mander's, and Revell's so far. My husband has Barker's, Walls, Cane's, Graham, Best's and Orr's so far. I had no idea our family was so big!
