Hazel May Elizabeth Walker

I know very little about Hazel May Elizabeth Walker, who was known as Betty.  I have not been able to locate any further details.

Betty is my first cousin, once removed (ie. my father's cousin)

Before her brother Bob died, he told me that she was born in August 1930 and she died in Western Australia in about 1963.

However body language told me that there was more to the story than her brother Robert "Bob" Walker was willing to tell.  When I asked more questions, he changed the subject and our family history discussion was over!

There are many more photos of Betty as a girl in my album.  If you have any other information about Betty, please contact me.

Bob and Betty Walker
"Cahermoyle" is a place in Ireland but I
do not know the significance.  The
family likely lived there as there are
several photos taken there when they were kids.

  1. I am always the most curious about family members where there is so little information or people act weird when telling stories about them. I hope you can find more info on Betty.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. That is fascinating to find out about your ancestors. I hope you can get your uncle to talk a bit more about Betty so you can be fully informed as to just who this beautiful woman was!

  4. My husband had a cousin who was a priest, but his family would always cease conversation about him if I walked into the room. I finally found out that he left the priesthood after fathering two children with a young woman who originally went to see him to convert to Catholicism. I guess she was the one doing the converting.

  5. Hmm, I guess Betty shamed the family. Such a pretty girl. I hope you find her and the answer to your question.
