I am searching for information on Michael Coleman McCarthy. He was of native american birth, but adopted out of an orphange by a McCarthy family from Kansas City, KS/MO area. According to family stories, he was raised by the adoptive family on a farm. He was born in 1917, possibly in Illinois. He also had a twin sister, but I'm unsure if they were adopted together. I found records of a Michael McCarthy married to a Mary McCarthy with 2 stepchildren (Bernadette and Jerry Marshall) in the 1940 census in Kansas City, MO. His age and occupation as a cabinetmaker, leads me to believe he is the same person. I 1945 he joined the military, and shortly after married another woman named Alice Patricia Hemenway (my husband's grandmother). Any information that could help me trace him back before 1945 or to the adoptive family would be appreciated.
