Ida Rosina Priscilla Bayliss (1879 – 1960)

Ida was born in Bathurst on 09/08/1879 and baptised on 07/09/1879 in All Saints Cathedral, Bathurst.

She gave birth to a son in 1902 before her marriage. The BDM search only give the name of the mother Ida and the death registration mentioned the father as John (no further initials). This profile fits many and only the original certificates are telling the true story. If the John is the same as Hilton John Minehan, what is not unlikely, John would only be 14 years when Ronald was born. Or maybe it is one of the secrets many families have.
