Her father was George Hayes H/C and her mother Mompy, an aboriginal. She was born at Neutral Junction in Central Australia. She is at present 32 years of age and is married to a half-caste named Harry Baxter, whom she married about 1941. She lived with Baxter for about 2 years and they are now separated. Ada Baxter's children are Noel, born 4.12.1940, living with mother Norma, born 9. 2.1946 (approximate), at present at St Mary's Hostel Martin Frederick, born approximately April 1946, inmate of Garden Point Mission, Melville Island, removed there about May 1946 with mothers consent Roger, born 5. 8.1948, living with mother Beverley Kay, born 22. 4.1950, living with mother Sidney George Philips, born 21. 1.1953, living with mother Noel was apparently reared in the Colebrook House in South Australia but has since returned to Alice Springs. During August 1951 it was reported that Ada ..censored..oned her child Noel in Alice Springs and had proceeded to Hatches Creek where she was living with a male European. Boel and his sister were finally admitted to St Marys Hostel on 14. 9.1951 as wards of this branch. Ada Baxter's mode of living since she separated from her husband can possibly be judged from the fact that Noel is the only child of their short union, and the other children are the result ..censored.. with various other Europeans. 30. 3.1953 From DNA Darwin William Thomas McLennan of Darwin is exempt.
