Note
In the "History of Parawenui District and Schools" her name is given as Florence Emma Hartley. This is unlikely as: 1. The child after her in the Follett family is Emma. 2. Florence her elder daughter was Florence Emma Howe Meads nee Hartley. She stated that her name was Florence from her mother, Emma from her grandmother on her mother's maternal side and Howe from her father's mother. Florence's daughters marriage certificate shows Children of Florence Follett. The first two children Herbert and William were known as Hartley. It is suggested that these two children were born out of wedlock and their fathers are not recordrd and that Richard Charles Peachy was the first legitimate child. I was as a child led to believe that they were Peachy but had changed their name to Hartley. The earlier version here could be true. Richard Charles Peachy was raised by the Peachy family. As a child growing up I vaguely knew of his existance but I don't think that I ever met him. The first Robert Arthur died 1909 at the age of 13 months. His father was working as a labourer on the Marshall estate and Robert was buried in the Marshall Family Cemetery. The Family had moved up onto the Parakaretu Flat by Jan 1910 and John was working as a Sharemilker for Nisbit. Florence was born in the house there. The coincidence of this is later she returned to live at this place and the house that she was born in was on her Husband's farm. By this time it was used as a storage building but was reasonably intact. Long after I ahd left to go nursing the house was demolished as the floor was no longer safe. My memories had them living down the Te Hou Hou road somewhere near the Potaka residence. I remember going there once and the house was at the bottom of the hill, off to the left of the road and up a long drive which consisted of deep wheel ruts which was rather difficult for the car. Once again John was sharemilking. He died in 1935 My next memories of my grandmother were of her living in Wanganui and she was housekeeping for an elderly gentleman Mr Sullivan. He was somewhat older than Granny and died. My last memory of her was when she was living at Gonville, Wanganui, She lived with an elderly lady in what capacity I do not know. As I had left the area I only kept contact with her by letter until her death. If I was asked to describe my "Granny" I would say that she was a kind hearted loving lady who life had not been altogether kind to. She however was always smiling to her grandchildren but was somewhat dogmatic and bossy with her children. She was a lady who never had any of life's extras but always seemed to make the best of any situation. In the "History of Parawenui District and Schools" her name is given as Florence Emma Hartley.
