Hi, I am trying to trace my Great Grandmother Laura Jane Martin's family tree. Laura was born 1881 in New Zealand and died in Australia. There was some questions posted a few years back, but has since been lost and they are no longer on this website. Laura Jane Martin was married to Walter Albert Johnston in 1906. I think Laura's mother was Elizabeth Avery and father James William Martin. James William Martin's father was James William Martin and his mother was Eliza King born 1839 in Hokianga. Now it's the Eliza King that I can't trace. I can't confirm who her parents were. Is anyone related to these people. Any help would be great.
