Searching for Greta V I Francis
« on: Saturday 21 May 16 09:01 BST (UK) »
Hi all, I need your help to find this lady.

Greta V.I. Francis was born to James Patrick Francis and Ada Victoria May Francis (née Britt) in 1907, with the birth recorded in Cooma, NSW.

Ada left the family home, with Greta when Greta was a young child. I can find no record of her. One of my husband's aunts did meet her at some stage and said she was "a nice lady" but could tell me no more other than it was around Tumut, NSW.

Any help would be gratefully received.
Cheers, Alison  :)

Scrap that, she emigrated from Wales with her parents and siblings in 1923.

Are you missing both Ada and her daughter?  This couple were together with the ANNETTS surname at Adelong from at least 1930.  She is Ada Victoria May on electoral rolls.  The marriage was the year after the death of James Patrick FRANCIS at Cooma.

6847/1954
ANNETTS, ARTHUR FREDERICK
FRANCIS,    ADA MAY

Ada ANNETTS was 87 when she died at Wagga. Parents not listed.

3026/1978  ANNETTS Ada Victoria May
Died at WAGGA WAGGA
087 (=aged 87)

Not much help with anything, but an interesting item. The beginning of this article is missing but it tells of a fatal mishap with a “horse-o-plane” which is operated by Charles Albert FRANCIS in 1953
