The Government came wer took Rob Riley, also known as Gulumun, away as a five month old child to Sister Kate's in Queens Park. He was later told that his mother Violet and step father Bill Riley, were dead, but this was a lie. Parents were not allowed to visit their children, but Violet "used to get a glimpse of him in the nursery". It wasn't until he was 12 that he was reunited with his mother and father.
Violet's mother was Anna Miller married to (unknown) Dinah. There were six children, Violet, Lois, Janet, Walter, Ivan and Sam. Sam Dinah was also sent to Sister Kate's where he met his nephew Rob, then called Robert Dinah.
