  • Notes 
    • Recently receiving a email from Irene Jennings, who told me that she was the great granddaughter of Grace Hughes, told me that Grandfather was a John Hughes son of Grace no fathers name mentioned on his birth record, he was adopted by Beatrice and Frank Fisher of Neutral Bay NSW, who from what I have read they called him "Fred"
      Further email from Kerry Fisher in April 2015, confirming that John Hughes was Frederick John Fisher, being her father.
      He was told by his adoptive parents in 1938 that his mother was Grace Hughes and that she had been murdered, just before he married. It is also believed that he had a younger sister. With a search of NSW BDM I have come up with 3 possible children for Grace,

      «b»I believe these may well be Grace's Children....«/b»
      Ellen P Hughes born 1911 mother Grace L Junee Registration no. 16755 ( No
      father listed)
      John Hughes born 1915 mother Grace Wagga Wagga Registration No. 16801 (No
      father listed)
      Gladys M Hughes born 1917 mother Glace Wagga Wagga Registration No. 7743
      (No father listed)
      «b»Also possible marriages«/b»:

      Ellen Phyllis Hughes married a Ernest Hilton Duncan 1940 Registration No.10739

      Gladys Mildred Hughes married John Farlow Registration No. 4964 in Burwood 1936
