birth [grand]parents

Crittenton Location: Charleston, South Carolina ()

Timeframe:

1967

Search Details:

Searching [with permission and support] for my mother's birth parents. She was born 2/6/67 in Charleston, or maybe Columbia. She has had two replacement birth certificates, because she was re-adopted when her adopted mother remarried. She remembers seeing some kind of paperwork from FC, but was too young to understand at the time. We have many family rumors but very little actual info. Her adoption was delayed approximately nine additional months due to some sort of legal or paperwork hiccup, potentially related to custody issues with birth parents' parents. Mostly just interested in the story and family history, not looking to make waves with other families.

brother

Crittenton Location: Washington, District of Columbia ()

Timeframe:

1962-1963

Search Details:

I am looking for my brother. He was born in 1962 in the fall through winter. His mother's nickname from what my father could remember was 'Midge'. They met in the Philippines as his mother was there because her father was a civilian contractor for the Navy and my father, 'Gabriel Ireton' was a Navy Journalist. After 'Midge' became pregnant she went back to Washington DC and waited for the baby to arrive. The adoption was handled through the Ireton family attorney and Florence Crighton homes. I do not know when the adoption was final as all paperwork is lost. My father did tell me that 'Midge' stayed in the Washington DC area and ended up working for the Federal Government.

Brother whom was surrendered while mother was staying there

Crittenton Location: Little Rock, Arkansas (Pulaski)

Timeframe:

1950?

Search Details:

My name is Kyla and my mother was born in 1936 March 7 in Magnolia, Arkansas. She was born Carolyn Ann Garner to Nora Ernestine and E.C. Garner and at age 8 was adopted my her mother's new husband Clyde Haywood Duke due to the war. They had actually been married since 1937 but the children were not adopted until they were 8 and 11. When my mother turned 13 or 14 (age not sure on) she was sent to the Florence Crittenton home in Little Rock, Arkansas where she gave birth to a son. (confirmed by the Arkansas adoption registry) but no other information not even non identifying information could be made available to me and she was made to surrender her son at that time. She had 1 full sibling sister named Venita Dean Garner also adopted by Clyde H Duke and one half sibling named Mary Ellen Duke. My mother was a cotton-top petite female with hazel/green eyes. I believe this birth took place in or around October because the youngest sibling remember going to visit on her birthday which is in September. Clyde was a Baptist minister and my grandmother worked in a family style grocery market or a newsstand.

Search Details:

I am writing on behalf of my cousin who is handicapped. Her name is Karen Jean (adopted name: Pearce). She believes she was born at Florence Crittenton Home for Unwed Mothers in Dunlap, Washington in the 1945/1946 time frame. She believes her birth mother's name was Mildred Elsa McNamara or Mildred Elsa Wheeler, from California. My cousin is now almost 73 years old and has struggled all her life not knowing her biological identity. She was adopted by Floyd Pearce, she does not even know what year, and though she was raised well she has struggled all her life not knowing her true identity. All of those connected with her adoption have long been gone and time is running out for her. I am helping her seek any information available to find her true family line.

I have a sister that was born while my mother was in the Florence Crittenton Home in Fargo. I think the birthday was Apr 21, 1954. My mom unwillinging was convinced to give up the baby for adoption, she was told to sign what she says she that were death papers. She now is sure they were adoption papers. My mom says the name she named the baby was Marguerite June, but that was probably not the name the adopted family chose. I have registered my DNA in many sites including FTDNA, Ancestry, and GEDMATCH and hope to find my sister before one of us is passed away.
