Would love to share information with descendants of this family. I have information about a child given up for adoption.

Hi;
I reolize your post is a few years old now, So I can only hope you read this reply.
I found out after my mother passed away in 1985 that she was an adopted child. There's not much info but what I do have is;
Date of birth,Dec 24,1919
Baby's name, Christine
Mothers name, Estelle Gronberg
Fathers name N/A
Place of birth, Rockland Massachusetts
Place of adoption, Dorchester Ma.
Is it possible the mothers name was Ellen instead of Estelle?
Well that's all I've got right now.
I'll cross my fingers and hope that you'll be the one who sheds some light on my mothers story.
Thank you,
Bob Cafarelli

Surnames: LUND GRONBERG
I am glad to hear from you. I did not know the Ellen was adopted. My father in law was adopted and was the child of Karen Beata Lund and a man named Jesse Warner Hoopes. Karen was the child of Anders Lund and Ellen Gronberg. He was adopted by a widow with 10 children in Logan. He went to the door of her home as an adult to meet her and had the door closed in his face. His adoptive family was Eliza Jane Clements and Charles Williams. Charles died before he was adopted. From what we heard from the midwife Jesse Warner Hoopes family thought they were of higher social class than the Lunds.
I live very near Rockport MA. I am about 30 miles north in a town called Bradford.
Have you checked her death certificate? Do you know where she was adopted?
Do you know if there are any living descendants of Karen?
She married Andrew Anderson. If there is anything I could check in Rockport I would be glad to.

My mother's maiden name Cornelia Estelle Gronberg, had an aunt Estelle Gronberg who was listed on the 1920 census on Columbus Ave in Boston, Mass. Estelle Gronberg was born in 1887 in Coaticook, Quebec Canada. Daughter of Cornelius Gronberg and Annie Galvin Gronberg. Her birth Cert. listed the name as Marie Estelle Gronberg. She had brothers Desmond b. 1883, Stanley b. 1894, Olaf b. 1898 (my grandfather) and sister Ethel b.1885 and a couple others who died in infancy.
she was married and died Estelle Postel in Jan 1963. She never used the first name Marie. They immigrated to the U.S in about 1903-05 into Vermont and are on the 1910 Lyndon Vermont census
