  1. Hello Judy. I was born in Brisbane Australia 1945. Birth mother - Viola Muriel nee DAWSON adopted to WALLIS - father - Edward R. Gaffney ( USA). Viola M. is a child born in 1918 to Ivy Olive CAMPBELL and Thomas 'Mick' DAWSON. They married in 1914. In 1915 their first child was born - Iris Viola DAWSON ( also adopted out but don't have that name ). Ivy Olive CAMPBELL died in 1920 and Thomas DAWSON in 1973.
    Ivy's birth mother was Matilda SMITH and her father was Alexander Peatson CAMPBELL. I'm trying to gather info on these two people - who were my maternal grandparents. Do you have any available info?
