HILL Mary Jane born 30-1-1857 at sea (4 days before landing) on “Tantivity” She died 19-5-1859. Cannot find a birth or death certificate but the family history “Pioneers of the Hills” the story of the Hill family of Blackwood records her birth and death. The family were living in Coromandel Valley at time (their 2nd daughter was born June 1859 in Coromandel Valley and the family were strong followers of the Methodist faith and attended the Coromandel Valley so it is possible that Mary Jane was buried in the churchyard. I cannot find her buried anywhere else.
