Has anyone checked shipping/passenger lists for an O'CONNOR, whether it be from Savaii or Upolu, leaving after the death of Punaotala LEAUANAE SELU? I can't imagine O'CONNOR leaving his son and young wife before her demise.
I will contact Mr. Fitisemanu again.
While I wait for your response, I will see what I can find re passenger lists for an O'CONNOR. Next stop is Tonga you say?
