It is not known where John was born.
He married Elizabeth Williams (born at Auckland in 1878) in 1903.
They had one daughter & three sons, although the father is not recorded on the birth certificates of Desmond & George.
This is probably because Elizabeth had remarried to Walter Parker in 1918, then George Hague in 1926, after John's death.
Both Desmond & George served in WW2.
The only electoral roll information on George was that he was a butcher in Levin in 1905.
Elizabeth moved to Auckland after marrying George Hague.
