This is possibly Mrs William Henry Adams, Eliza Johnston Dagger. Eliza was the daughter of Robert Dagger and she and her mother came to NZ on the ship 'Nelson' in 1863 from Edinburgh. Eliza married William Henry Adams (who had come to NZ in 1865 on the Thracian) on the 7th March 1883. William Henry Adams later became editor of the Otago Daily Times and died in 1948. Eliza died in 1944 and both are buried in the Northern Cemetery of Dunedin. They were the parents of Thomas Dagger Adams, noted Professor of Classics at the University of Otago.
