Robert James Johnson was a 'remittance man' sent to New Zealand in 1898. Documents indicate he claimed he was born in East St.Louis on 11 Dec 1874 to Robert James Johnson (Father) and Elizabeth Ann Johnson (nee Fairbairn). This has not been able to be verified. Seeking information on arrival of Robert Jr in NZ in 1898. Robert married Barbara Anne Sinclair at Knox Church, Dunedin, Otago NZ, in 1901. He is listed in NZ Army records for WWI but it is not believed he went overseas due to his large family of children. He died in Dunedin in 1929 aged 54 after '41 years living in NZ'. Any help with tracking down his arrival in NZ, port of departure in the US and any details of his life in the US would be greatly appreciated.
