Note
Herbert Stanley Meads and Maud had 3 sets of Premature twins all of whom died within a few days of birth. One set of twins are buried in the Rangawahia Cemetery. Zachariah and Herbert were co-owners of a property in the Sandon Block area. There was a difference of opinion with his father Zachariah, so before Zachariah knew what had happened he sold the farm and sailed to Australia. It was some years before the family knew where he was. From his granddaughter Beth Brimfield. My grandfather was a wonderful man, 6ft 6ins in height, kind and generous. He had a sheep property at Moree N.S.W. and later became a shearing contractor. From his granddaughter Beth Brimfield. My grandfather was a wonderful man, 6ft 6ins in height, kind and generous.
