This maybe a long chance but I have a Mary Skene who came to New Zealand
c1869, she married a Alexander Davidson in New Plymouth, New Zealand in Nov
Mary died in 1922 at the age of 80 years. The death certificate only shows
she was born in Scotland. Maiden name of mother unknown, only name shown for
father was SKENE.
This is the first time that I have seen this name come up on this group so I
thought I might ask.
