Hi four47 - great to hear from you and thank you so much for the NZ site. We had traced Dare to NZ and knew he enlisted in the army during WW1 and survived. Dare died 16/5/1980 in a little town just outside of Auckland. He never did marry.
I have a great deal of info on the family of William Malcolm b. 1831 which I am only too happy to share with you. Please contact me at UQuinel@bigpond.com
My family come from Melbourne and I visit my sisters regularly. If you give me contact details for your eldest, I will make contact when next in Melbourne.
