Manny’s birthday book – April 26

April 26, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for ChildrenMy grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  April 16 – Billy Philips and Raelene

See, O children! now I bring

Glad sweet flowers of the spring;

May your paths with flowers be spread,

May you on them lightly tread!

Raelene  is Manny’s niece.

Billy Philips – There are no births in Western Australia between 1900 and 1920 with the surname Philips (with one L).  The only marriages with that surname listed in the index are women.  There are a few more deaths, but none that appear to be Billy.

If you think you know who Billy Philips is, please comment and let me know.
