thank you chris,
from the info that we have gathered amoungst family members and stories there was a James Bourne (born 1804 in Dublin Ireland) - married Mua Mata'utia. they had 5 known children (our line decending from Morris): Morris B. (born 1830), James (b.1832), Micheal (b.1834), Elsie (b.1836), and John (b.1838). - note these are only approx dates.
Morris married Maria Lio in 1865 and they had 2 children: Mary (b. 1858) and James Lio (b. 1866)
James Lio married 3x's, 1st to Nofu Sauni in 1881 in the Fiji Islands. They had a son named Taumau James (b. 1882) - we are fourtunate enough to be in contact with descendents of Taumau James.
His 2nd marriage is where I decend from was to Muliuimu Manuleleia in 1894. They had 4 children Andrew (my great grandfather born in 1895), Filipo (b. 1899), Sakapo (b. 1902), Elena (b.1905).
I was in Samoa recently and was fortunate enough to go to the cemetry where my great grandfather is buried, catholic cemetry in Apia. (forgotton the name, but its not Magiagi), i spoke to the Lady who owns the restaurant next to this cemetry and we could find all the info at the main catholic church in Apia (which happens to be where most of the family had attended) but due to limited time i could not make it there. When i go back, i know i will be one step closer to gather all docs needed.
