She would have been born in 1889 if she was born in VIC. Going by newspaper articles they were in NSW in 1899

Gilson was her second marriage Dave.

Well now, I never would have guessed.

Thanks gibbo. :)

You want to bet on it? :2fun:

Australia Birth Index, 1788-1922
Name: Mary Burt Baird
Father's name: John Orr Baird
Mother's name: Margaret Jane Garden
Birth Place: Brunswick, Victoria
Registration Year: 1899
Registration Place: Victoria
Registration Number: 29003

Seems it was either registered 10 years late or it's an error. Family says it was 1889.

Well, I didn't know at the time of the 1910 marriage. :biggrin:

At least I found out I was wrong thinking it was Thomas William GILSON.
