Biography contributed by Katherine Blakeley

Rose Anna O’Connor was born in 1863 in Victoria, Australia – the daughter of James O’Connor and Ann Clancy.

The family came to Otago about 1865 and settled in Dunedin.

Rose’s mother died in childbirth in 1873 and Rose married Frederick Martin Schock, a bootmaker, in 1886.

They had six children, one who died in infancy, and when Rose signed the suffrage petition the family were living in Athol Place, Dunedin.

Frederick died in 1898, aged 35, he is buried with his mother in the Northern Cemetery.

Rose died on 14 November 1918, she is buried with their daughter in the Andersons Bay Cemetery.
