I’m researching Harry Rea and his wife Sarah (Sadie).
Harry b.1874 was the son of John & Elizabeth Rea living at Stapleford Nottingham England in 1881 and the family moved to New Zealand after that date. Possibly to Greytown Wellington.
Sarah born about 1871 in New Zealand a widow and previously married to Louis Dawson. She was the 3rd daughter of Thomas & Sarah Montague of Dunedin Otago. Some when she may have also lived in Christchurch Canterbury area.
It appears in 1923 Harry was proprietor of the Golden Age Hotel at Bluff and Sarah had also worked in hotels, although they both died in Dunedin in 1942 & 1939 respectively.
A Memoriam in 1943 for Harry came from his sisters & brothers Mrs. M Sutton, Mrs L Varnham, Mr L Rea (Wellington) Mr J Rea (Brisbane).
I’d like to know if Harry & Sarah had any children of their own or if a relative saved any photo’s of them or anything else you think might be of interest.
