Clara was born a Tantrum in New Zealand in 1879 her parents were Edwin & Mary Tantrum from Shropshire, England, who immigrated to NZ in 1873.Clara was raised, married and lived in the Manawatu region of NZ. In 1901 Clara Married John Howe James, John died in 1904. In 1911 Clara James married John Tuxford Woodmass. From the NZ Electoral Roll records I have recorded that until 1928 Clara and John lived in Feilding, Manawatu, NZ, John Tuxford Woodmass died in 1931. I have been trying without much success to find out what happened to Clara.I have found no record of Clara having died in NZ by checking under her married name of Woodmass or her born maiden name Tantrum up to 1999. The last residence I have for her is the 1928 Electoral Roll entry where she was recorded living at Feilding in the Manawatu. Clara could have remarried however I have checked the NZSG Marriage CD up to 1956 and there is no record, I would have still expected to find a Electoral Roll entry for her if she was still in NZ.It seems quite likely that Clara left NZ but where would she go? I have searched via Ancestry Searches  the England & Australia marriage and death records and the Australia voting registers without success. I have no record of any children born to Clara's 1st or 2nd Marriage. Grateful for any info Frown
