LEMON, Aydon Paul looking for his relatives
I am looking to meet/talk to any relatives of Aydon Paul Lemon. He immigrated to U.S./Canada in the late 1950's. He was from Rotorura/ Hastings area. Teached at Hastings Prefects School. Sister - Elva Bird. Cousin - Wayne Stokes. He passed away in 1997, I was fairly young and didnt get a chance to talk to him about family/maori heritage. I am planning a trip to New Zealand in December would like to talk to anyone with info about my family tree. Thank you.
Hi there Paul
Just a quickee to say Kia Ora!!! My maternal great-grandfather's name was Paul Lemon, and his daughter (Maryanne Lemon-Te Whaiti) was my maternal grandmother. They both came from Pakaraka, Bay of Islands. There is a Wayne Stokes I have had contact with. If you go into YAHOO and search under "REMANA/KIWIKIWI" you should be able to find the Kiwikiwi group and register. You may be able to make contact with a lot of the whanau that will know a lot about the family tree. I havent met them myself but i have had a few emails in the past. Good Luck with your trip in Dec. Arohanui, Kay Russell 😀
