We do have the birth records, what a nightmare that was. My mom has them. We are currently waiting to get some information from the Catholic Childrens Aid Society, he was with them for 2 yrs while the custody of him could be sorted out. I am hoping it will provide 2 missing pcs to my puzzle. 1 Info on Thomas, birth date something ( anything really) and 2 the burial or plot number of my Grandma Ruth. I know she was buried in Our lady of Mount Carmel in Freelton, but there is no headstone, seems to be a numbered grave. Trouble with that is the records from the 1940's were burned in a fire and even the funeral home can't seem to find any records from then. So no one knows where her body was put to rest.
