My grandfather was at Sheltering Arms Orphanage from April 1919 when born,
for a couple of years. His birth name was Charles Richard Stanley. He was
adopted and moved to Iowa with a new name of Charles Richard Norris, then
his adopted mother died so he was adopted AGAIN! New and final name is
Andrew Richard Barr.

We have a birth certificate with his mom listed at Ruth Stanley from
Missouri born about 1898 and dad is George Brown a couple years older from
Chicago, assuming the birth certificate is correct. We just cannot get any
further in our research regarding his birth parents. I found a Ruth
Stanley that was also an adopted girl in Missouri, but no info on birth
place or parents so again nothing more.

How did you get so much more information?
