I did a search on line and believe I have located the information based on the limited information you had:
I located a birth record for FRANKLIN FITZPATTRICK for 6-9-1945 in Floyd Co KY and his mothers name is NORA.
Based on the suggested name of TUSSEY, I located a NORA TUSSEY in the 1920 - 1930 - 1940 census of Floyd Co Ky living with her parents GREEN and MOLLIE TUSSEY.
Based on the GREEN TUSSEY connection I went to FindAGrave.com and typed in the TUSSEY surname and Floyd Co KY. His name appears along with all the names of his children and there is included :
NORA SUE (FITZPATRICK) born 3-7-1920 and died 5-8-1991.
Also on the search for TUSSEY you will find several generations of TUSSEY represented and should be the family he is looking for.
