Robert Muir in New Zealand

Whilst engaged in my rewriting of the story of James Ford I have come across additional research which has altered my thoughts about James’ father, Robert Muir.

I had originally cast him as something of a villain but further research suggests that such may not be the case.

It is almost impossible isolating the numerous Robert Fords that inhabited the Otago area of the South Island.  But there is one consistent Robert Ford on the electoral rolls associated with Waitouaiti up to 1880 which I suspect is our man.

Subsequently, I have made some necessary changed to the James Ford New Zealand page.
