If ANYONE Has info on Mary McKechnie, who married William Brown, Maori Creek, Greymouth. please let me know.....

This is what I know so far.....
Mary McKechnie moved to Wanganui with her son Whitford James Brown after her husband William Brown Died, there was some sort of feud between the McKechnie and Brown Families..


Marys' Father: William Taylor McKechnie was born 1831 Scotland, he came to NZ and in 1875 married Mary Jane Whitford, daughter of George & Cecilia Whitford (he was Captain of a paddle steamer "Lioness" Hokitika.
William McKechnie was proprietor of the NEW RIVER HOTEL, Dugganville. He died 1905 Greymouth.
When he retired his daughter Kate (Mrs Brown) took over running the hotel.
Kate was married to William Brown son of Archibald Brown & Bridget Murphy.
