Thank you for this information as you have just filled me in with details of my ancestary. My mother is Caroline Curtis (nee Shute) and married Jack Thomas Curtis - they had 10 children - 9 females and 1 male as follow - Beatrice, Mona, Sophie, Susan, Emcil, Marie, Myra, Hazel, Beverley (myself) and Percy. I am the 9th and youngest female with 1 younger brother. Now Maraia (Wise) is my mother's mother (my grandmother) and I never knew who Maraia's mother was until reading you detailed history of the familes. It seems that Josephine Rounds is my great-great grandmother. My sister Beatrice's second name was Josephine.
Many thanks for giving such a detailed history.
