William Louis b Mar 17, 1896 Tauranga(my Grandfather)

and their may have been another child

William Louis married Irene Matilda Heywood and had 5 children my Dad William Thomas Smith being the 3rd child.

William Hall parents were William Smith and Mary Alexander but I know nothing else about them.
