red mail Robert - Served in WWII Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
I do not have many details on this gentleman. What I do know is that he fathered a child in England at the beginning of 1945 - He was an American GI - the babies mother was called Helen Johnson and lived in Reddish, Stockport, Cheshire. She was married at the time, the baby was put up for adoption in early 1946 - I do not know if the above even knew about this baby. unfortunately helen perished 1 week after giving her baby up for adoption. I know this is probably going to be a very very hard search as I do not know what state 'Robert' lived in, I am indeed guessing that his name was Robert due to the name that Helen gave her son when he was born! This baby born in such difficult circumstances is MY FATHER - He is still living and wishes to know his parentage. I managed to find out a great deal about his mother but unfortunately not about his father and, due to the passing of time, this search is proving so very very difficult. With Helen dying at such a tender age (20), the likelihood of finding anyone whom she may have confided in and knew her circumstances is, I know, very remote. I would love to reunite my Dad with any of his paternal family (I appreciate his father may now be deceased). Any information gratefully received. Thank you - Lorraine
