Some of this info comes from Rootsweb: http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:a18263&id=I0124http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:a18263&id=I0124
The link contains a lot of info on the American branches.
Frank was the most prominent photographer who took many landscapes in NZ as well as operating portrait studios. He emigrated to the USA in the 1890s. With his brothers Harry and William they operated as Coxhead Brothers. Between them they operated studios in Dunedin, Timaru, Oamaru and Invercargill.
I would be happy to hear from you and any relatives of the above.
