Irwin was born on october 9th, 1912 in Saginaw and died from injuries sustained in a car accident on January 1st,1942. He married Grace Lindow in 1935. She had one daughter whose name is Dixie Louise(my mother). My main inquery at this point is to find out whether or not my mother was adopted by Irwin. My mothers maiden name was Smith which may mean Zmich in polish. If anyone has any information that may help me clear up this adoption mystery, I would greatly appriciate it. My mother doesn't remember ever being adopted because she was only 9 years old when Irwin passed away.
