She was the daughter of Garry Karira Tahuaroa WATSON and Jane Tini Pere RIWAI. Dolly married unknown and had a (living) daughter.

William & Dolly MATANGI have three living children (two sons and a daughter). Living male MATANGI* never validly married Mary Coulter Eadie HUGHES 1936-2008 and they had a daughter in 1958 Hamilton, New Zealand. *It is known that this Living male MATANGI served in Korea, and later married and had three daughters.

Mary Coulter Eadie HUGHES was born 1 Feb 1936 Wellington, New Zealand and died 9 Feb 2008 Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. She was the eldest daughter of Stephen HUGHES and Martha Coulter EADIE. Mary married 20 May 1961 Hamilton, New Zealand to Barry James Joseph LYONS 1934-2003. Barry adopted Mary's daughter and the couple went onto have three children in New Zealand, adopting two children, then emigrating to Australia and having their last child in Queesland.

Note: Sources of information has mostly been family, then I found a few IGI Individual Records online at FamilySearch.org.

If anyone could assist with the MATANGI line it would be greatly appreciated as I am helping my niece with this part of her family tree.
