Hi Phillipa,

Thanks for the email.

I've been trying to make contact with Grace's descendants for a few years now. Grace was my father's cousin and he and Charles were quite close. I remember as a child in the 1950s. visiting Charles at his home although I didn't actually know who he was until a few years ago when I found his address and realised I'd actually been there.

I have copies of Grace and William's marriage certificate, and her and Charlie's death certificates. I noticed Charles died as a result of motor-neurone disease, a disease that took my older brother's life in 2000. I also have a picture of Grace and Williams memorial stone in the cemetery at Whenua Tapu, Wellington. Fergusson is spelt with two s's. It is the existence of the stone that convinced me there are living relatives. The only child i knew of was Delma and I know she came to England in 1957. I have a copy of the passenger list and also a copy of the passenger list of the Rimutaku on which Grace travelled in 1924.

I can send copies of these documents and would be grateful for details of Grace's descendants and copies of any pictures you may have. You're welcome to details of all the information I have on the Russell family and copies of any relevant pictures.

I have been contacted by Sarah and have sent a copy of this email to her.

Best regards and looking forward to hearing from you soon.
