my mother's grandfather Augustus Carl Hempel arrived
mysteriously in Thames New Zealand late 1890s. said to have
'jumped ship' along with a Simon Doant orDoak? who always referred to Hempel as captain. Naturalization certification
states birth place Neugarten Germany? Occupation locksmith.
Went on to become Kauri gum broker in Far North of New Zealand. Spoke often of family relationship to opera singer
Fredericka Hempel but would give no information
as to his past. Could this relate to your August?
regards meredith
