Here are photographs of Joshua Cocker and his wife, Elizabeth (née Lobley) Cocker and their children, taken in the Kingdom of Tonga http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~jamel/1HohokoCockersofTonga.html
Joshua Cocker was a "Methodist lay-preacher and bank clerk" in Yorkshire, England around 1849, then he emigrated with his brothers to Australia in 1850. Joshua Cocker became a "wealthy merchant and businessman, as well as a shipowner" in Australia from 1850 to 1856. Then he emigrated again this time joined by his wife, Elizabeth Cocker (née Lobley) and their two young British-born children (Benjamin Lobley Cocker, born on April 30, 1849 in Dewsbury, Yorkshire; William Walker Cocker, born on October 16, 1853 in Howden, Yorkshire) and Joshua Cocker's younger brother, William Cocker to the Kingdom of Tonga in 1856. The first European settlers of Tonga, Joshua and Elizabeth Cocker and their children lived at the palace of King George Tupou I in the capital, Nuku'alofa between the years 1856-1861; by the year 1862 Joshua Cocker and his family resided in an adjoining residence to the King's palace, and by the hospitality of Joshua Cocker and his wife, Elizabeth Cocker, they used their new residence to receive British diplomats and other English dignitaries during this Victorian era. Joshua Cocker thereby became an "adviser, confidant, and very close friend" of King George Tupou I of Tonga in 1856 and one of the very first Europeans, including the (head Methodist missionary, Rev. Shirley Waldemar Baker, arrived in Tonga in 1860 and who later became the first Prime Minister of Tonga, and an English trader by the name of Mr. Moss) who act as councils and assisted the King in drafting new laws in the constitution of the Kingdom of Tonga. It is true to say, that the first written and original constitution of Tonga during the reign of King George Tupou I and before it was enacted in 1875 was written by the King's own English advisers: Joshua Cocker, Shirley Waldemar Baker and Englishman and trader, Mr. Moss.
Joshua and Elizabeth Cocker's daughter, "Charlotte Elizabeth Cocker" was born in the Royal palace of King George Tupou I - on December 11, 1860 and officially was the first documented European baby born in the Kingdom of Tonga. Charlotte Elizabeth Cocker later at age nineteen, married German-born merchant and wealthy businessman, "Henry William August Riechelmann" in 1879. There were no Germans in Tonga from 1855-1863, however, the second known European settler in the Kingdom of Tonga is a German trader by the name of "August Sanft" he was born, "Christian Fredrich August Sanft" on November 24, 1822 in Prussia (Germany); arrived in the Kingdom of Tonga from Australia in 1864 (not 1855). "Christian Fredrich August Sanft" was married to a German woman by the name of Sophie Dörner and had four children with her in Tonga (birth dates of children are unknown). More German traders, merchants and settlers with last names: Zuckschwerdt, Brähne, Grieve, Hellfritz, Ostermann, Schaaf, von Treskow, Sanft, Kronfeld, Hettig, Walter, Saffings, Schober, Muller, Guttenbeil, Wolfgramm, Quensell, Ludwig, Franz, Schulke, Schaumkel, Hoeft, Hansen, Schober, Schultz, Fritz, Guerr, Becker, and Riechelmann, arrived in the Kingdom of Tonga beginning in 1867 and onward when the German import and export firm "J.C. Godeffroy & Sohn" set up business in Tonga in 1867. Nevertheless, back to the Cocker family, the first European pioneers and settlers of Tonga. Joshua Cocker imported from Australia the "first cow" to the Kingdom of Tonga in 1856, and he became the "first British Consul" in the Kingdom of Tonga as well as a "businessman, trader and a merchant" until his death at age fifty-six on May 06, 1880. Joshua and Elizabeth Cocker and their children according to the Official Palace records of King George Tupou I - were the "first European settlers in the Kingdom of Tonga."

By age eighteen, Rianna Richards began writing her first fiction Novel in Seattle which she entitled: "Kiss This Soil Goodbye." The Novel was unfinished and unpublished about a young girl from a powerful and wealthy family who was banished and exiled from her family and country to the United States of America where she became penniless, poor and starving; but, because of her natural beauty she was rescued by an American medical doctor who believed in her and helped her established a successful career in modeling where she later became the CEO of an empire. The version of this first Novel is almost identical to Rianna Richards' latter Novel, "Mirella the Penniless Heiress" except the setting of the story is based in Seattle, Washington - U.S.A. At age twenty one, Rianna Richards began writing again her second unfinished and unpublished Novel she entitled: "Joseph and Elizabeth Cook - The English Pioneers," about two English couple who left Yorkshire, England with their English-born children and starting a new life in a foreign island in the South Pacific in the 1800's as the island's first white colonizers.

By Rianna Richards. I can still vividly remember that one spring morning in 1994 when I thought to myself, I've got to do something about my talent in music, and I did.
Going back years to my childhood, I believe music was a major part of my life particularly growing up in the Seventh Day Adventist religion where I was exposed to music every Sabbath, and during my years in Elementary School (in between school homework, attending pathfinder camps and other activities of my childhood like reading, writing and drawing), I practiced music three or four times during the week with fellow musicians and singers of my Seventh Day Adventist Church. I was probably eight years old when I was first chosen to sing solo for a singing group at my Church mainly for solo parts; and high tenor if I'm singing with a group or singing in a duet. Music was part of my life, it came natural to me, and it was a talent I was born with. In High School, I was chosen to take bigger roles in singing solos my entire years in High School, and those years were very memorable times.
