Marydell, hello and thank you for your quick response. I have lots of questions about Joseph Louis Butcher.
Here are some of them:
Where, when and how did Joseph arrive in NZ?
Why do you think he was a mariner?
What makes you suspect his surname may originally have been Boucher?
Do you have any info. about Eliza Saunders? I would like to know when and where she was born and parents details.
Do you have names and details of all of Joseph and Eliza's children? I only know of Eliza Jane, Alice Ada and Emily Ann.
Of these I only have details about Emily Ann as she was my Gt Gt Grandmother.
What is your connection?
Is there anything that I may be able to help you with?
Sorry to ask for so much. Thanks, Leanne.
