Request for information!

Dear historians, can someone help?

…we’ve just had correspondence from a researcher who is …..

…. trying to track down the descendants of Captain Francis R. Webb. He was the American Consulate of Zanzibar in 1871 when H.M. Stanley arrived to look for Dr. Livingstone. A few years later, he became the American Consulate for New Zealand. I have lost his trail here. Any information regarding Capt. Webb and his family would be greatly appreciated!

Please post your reply to the NZHA website or email us.

UPDATE 17th Sept 2014: wonderful news, someone came back to us with the info. Many thanks to the researchers at the Auckland City Council.
