Hi Carolyn,
Ettie Mary Imelda Cameron (nee Greene) was godmother to one of my mothers cousins. She also wrote to my mother when she was a child and sent her the sets of cards you used to get out of the weetbix pack - about things like australian birds and animals. She lived in Lake Cargelligo which is in NSW, Australia. Mum lived in New Zealand. Thus they never met that Mum ever knew about. When I researched Hannah Mary, I discovered she married John Whelan and had 5 children. One of those was Emma Evelyn Whelan who married Thomas Timothy Greene. I can find only one child - Ettie Mary Imelda.
I have a photo of Hannah Whelan, Emma Greene, and Imelda Cameron with Dorothy Graham and her husband, David Molesworth. Hannah died in 1924, David in 1926 and Dorothy in 1927 so it had to have been taken before then. Dorothy and David did not have the money to travel overseas, so I am presuming they went to NZ.
Maybe Hannah was Dorothy's aunt, maybe Dorothy was illigitimate and that is why she never talked about her family and never put down anything on her marriage cert, or her children's birth certs other than coming from Ireland???
There has to be some reason she held on to Hannah Mary's confirmation certificate of 1852. I note that Hannah left UK in Sept 1854. Dorothy left Belfast in June 1875.
