    Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY.

      Annie Logan Redpath was born in 1871 at Glenledi near Milton, Otago. She attended Waitahuna and Mount Stuart schools. In 1894 Annie married John Henry Bateman (known as Jack), at her mother's home at Mount Stuart, Otago. Annie and Jack had both been working in Waitahuna - Annie as a domestic servant and Jack on his grandfather's farm.

      John Henry Bateman was born on 19 July 1867, in Bampton in Oxfordshire, England. He was the eldest child of Thomas Henry Bateman and Elizabeth Edwards. The family left England at the end of 1882 on the Wellington and arrived in Port Chalmers on 12 March 1883. The family lived at Fairfiew Farm at Mount Stuart, but Jack, who was fifteen, went to live with his mother's parents John and Louise Edwards. Jack's grandfather was managing a farm at Glenledi near the coast from Milton. He worked there for several years then returned to Waitahuna when his grandfather bought the property known as 'Paddy's Point'.

      The couple lived at 'Paddy's Point' with Jack's grandfather Edwards until his death ten years later. By this time Annie and Jack had seven children and Jack was working for Otago Farmer's Agency. When John Edwards died the farm was sold and Jack and Annie moved to Waitahuna.

      Jack died on 20 March 1925 in Waitahuna and is buried at Waitahuna. Annie died 21 January 1949 at Waitahuna and is buried with Jack (and his parents) in Waitahuna cemetery. The following obituary appeared on page 31 of the Otago Witness on 31 March 1925.

His loss will be greatly felt in Waitahuna. Mr Bateman leaves a wife and five sons and three daughters to mourn his loss. The funeral on Monday was the largest seen in Waitahuna for very many years.
