My Family Tree

David SMITH married Maria JONES in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1856.  

My Great Great Grandfather

David Smith came to NZ in 1855, married Maria in 1856 and then they went to Waimate had two children David and Jane.  Maria died in 1869, David fathered another son Robert David in 1872 and married Sarah Sole nee Bason in 1873.  Sarah died in 1896 and her death certificate said that David had pre-deceased her.  To date, I cannot find any linking information to know when our David Smith died.
