The Reynolds family, from the Isle of Wight, to Little River, Banks Peninsula, to Dannevirke. What encouraged this extended family to make their moves and who has their final resting place at the Settlers Cemetery?
Drownings were not uncommon in the early times but accidents on our early roads were more common than we would think. George Cowan, William Aylward and James Gibson are in this group.
Everyone has a Smith in their family, can you claim a connection to William Henry and what about Joseph Gunnion?
Christina Clark, and two little Allison children rest here too and we will hear their stories.
