Trying to find a father for Saunders/Sanders Blessington born 7th Feb 1884 Brisbane Queensland. His mother is Mary Welsh born Ireland 1840. She married a John Blessington 1858 Bradford England and migrated to Australia in 1874. John Blessington died 1876 in Brisbane Queensland Australia 8 years before my grandfather Saunders was born. I have a copy of his baptism from St. Stephen Cathedral Brisbane stating he was baptised under the name of James Sanders Blessington mother Mary Walsh father John Blessington (deceased). I have documents stating that he was sent to a Industrial School for neglected children when he was 9 years old and later was released to a Mr Voss of Wongalee Station Hughenden Queensland when he was 12 years old.

I don't see how he could be the father so Mary chose not to name the actual father when Sanders was baptised.

When did Mary die? Did she remarry?
