You were right. Bertha is the mother of Francis Rixon. I have the birth certificate. The bad news...no father's name I assume there is no way what so ever of finding out who the father was. I have one surviving cousin who, as a child, new Francis before his demise but I doubt he will have any knowledge as to his parentage.I will speak to him.
As to my research, well I will continue down Bertha Rixon's path and see where that takes me.

Thanks for letting us know Paul.
The only sure way to identify a father, even if one is named on a birth certificate, would be through DNA!
