I am trying to find information on my father Raymond who was born to Elsie (Richard) and John McLaughlin. I found her and John McLaughlin on the 1930 Census and they had 2 children, Robt (which I assume is Robert) who was 3 1/2 and Jean who was 2. My father was born May 1933. I have confirmation that Elsie divorced John and married Jeremiah Reardon in Jan. 1938. My father (Raymond) was given up to the state and I can not find any information on Robert. Can anyone tell me the story of where Robert went and why Elsie had my father become a ward of the state. He would have been 3 at the time.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
