De SMIDT, Henry Jospeh - 4 March 1872 aged 52
De SMIDT, Louisa Christina - 9 July 1904 aged 73 (nee Gohl)
* Henry & Louise married in NZ in 1863. One of their daughters, Dorothea Theresa De Smidt (1866-1927) married Rt. Hon. Sir Joseph George Ward 1st Baronet of Wellington, GCMG, PC (1856-1930) & 17th Prime Minister of NZ. Born in Melbourne, Joseph joined the post office as a message boy in 1869 but was soon sacked for being impudent to his employer. In the meantime he had learned Morse code and later, as postmaster general, he enjoyed confounding dignitaries escorting him on tours of inspection by smartly tapping out his own telegrams. Ward then worked as a clerk at Samuel Nichol's general store on the Bluff waterfront until 1876 when he briefly joined the Public Works Department as chief clerk, handling the loading and unloading of ships. Sometime in 1877 or 1878 Hannah Ward Barron lent her son £800 with which he built storage sheds on the waterfront. Joseph Ward was beginning what became a lifetime mercantile enterprise buying wool, grain and skins. In time he acquired shipping agencies and sold supplies such as grass seed, sheep dip, fertiliser and supplementary stockfeed to Southland's rapidly growing number of small farmers. In 1878, when still only 21, he was elected to the Campbelltown Borough Council. In 1881 he added the Bluff Harbour Board to what became an impressive list of political trophies. In November – aged 25 – he was mayor, a position which he held until 1886 and again in 1897–98. In February 1883 he was chairman of the harbour board as well, a position from which he was able to influence freight rates and wharf space – both important to J. G. Ward and Company. His company now had its headquarters in the Crescent in Invercargill. Ward held the chairmanship of the harbour board until February 1888, resuming it briefly in 1893 when his company grew shaky and freight rates were much on his mind. He remained a member until 1917.
In 1883 27-year-old Joseph Ward, handsome, olive-skinned and with an expansive moustache, married the tall, graceful Theresa Dorothea De Smidt, who was 10 years younger and the daughter of Bluff's rival publican. There were two ceremonies at Bluff, probably for religious reasons, one on 4 December and the other on the fifth. They were to have five children, four of whom spent their childhood years in Bluff before going away to private schools. It was a most successful marriage.
When Seddon died on 10 June 1906, Ward was in London. He hastened back to New Zealand and was sworn into office as prime minister on 6 August 1906... lots more at his link

North Otago Times, 3 April 1901
Louisa Dickens, a married woman accompanied by her son, a lad of 13, died on the Monowai, shortly after the steamer arrived at the Bluff, on the passage from Melbourne.

The jury returned a verdict that death resulted from natural causes. Mrs Dickens' husband is said to be in Palmerston North
