Re: Thomas Rose Atkinson and Martha Jane Bassett
Jeff, I ran your names through some of the NZ databases I have.I'm not sure what any of this means but here's what I got:
1.No marriage for a Martha Bassett to Thomas Atkinson.
Men named Thomas Rose Atkinson (possibly son/grandson?) did marry the following women:
a.1884 to Clara Jane Toop (probably the Thomas Rose Atkinson born 1860).
b. 1932 to Ellen Elizabeth Baker
2.Burials & Deaths:
Thomas Atkinson Death: 1880 39Y(giving a birth year of abt 1841), burial Southern Cem, Dunedin (No probate found).I include him because his birth year is the closet of all the Thomas Atkinson's I searched.
