Search Details:

I am searching for the daughter of my father, Stanley C. Hansen (1914-1969). He lived in Baltimore, MD Hampden neighborhood and his daughter was born August 21-22, 1941. No name known of the mother. She probably gave birth in Pennsylvania, possibly in the York FCH. The adoptive parents were Darrell and India Caless of Baltimore. Darrell was my father's best friend.
Right after the adoption took place, my father moved to Rockford Illinois and married my mother in 1945. He died there in 1969. Most likely, the birth mother has died and I know that the adoptive parents have died.
