My father, Clifford Eleras PARISH, was born at the Rescue Mission in Omaha, NE in 1912. Does anyone know if there are any records of this mission? Was it simply a place for unwed mothers to have their babies or was it also an orphanage? My grandmother, Vinnie Gladys PARISH later married Russell Clark JACKSON and they raised my father as their oldest child, but I'm not sure Russell was his natural father. In those days, I's imagine it was a huge stigma to have an illigitimate child so I can't see JACKSON accepting the child if he were not his, but perhaps he was open-minded. Would love to hear from anyone about this subject.
