Elsie Leitch
















Heather Irwin is great-grandaughter of Rebecca. She sent the photo of Eva with possibly sister Rebecca standing together on the balcony of their home, James at the entry and the Hodson family group. The Hodson's Wanganui house photo sent courtesy of Peter Cory in Sydney. This hung in the hallway of his mother's (Rosalind Corey)  home at Drummoyne, NSW and originally belonged to his grandmother,  Rebecca Hicks (nee Griffin. 

Heather believes Eva named the Hodson Durie Hill house below "Huirangi" and maybe the photo was given to Rebecca during this visit...??
