Gladys Evelyn Draper(Mother LUCY GAMMAGE)

My name is Viv Rethman. I'm trying to find out more about my Great-grandmother. She was Gladys Evelyn Draper born in Sydney on 5 Feb 1891 and apparently known as "Sydney Miracle Baby" because she was so small and not expected to live. Her parents were James Draper, born in 1849 in Australia, and Lucy Mary GAMMAGE born in 1857 in England. Gladys was the 11th of 16 children, the last who was born after they emigrated to South Africa in 1898.
My great granny lived to a ripe old age - she died in May 1979 aged 89 - she'd married Frederick John Allison Broomhead in 1913, and had 8 children - my grandmother was the fourth - Elizabeth Mary born on 17 August 1919 (and still going strong!) - she married William George Field Rethman - my grandfather.
