NOT KNOWING THE CIRCUMSTANCES TO WHY HE WAS PUT UP FOR ADOPTION...AND I'M TRYING TO BE DISCREET HERE...PERHAPS THIS EVERETT NORWOOD WAS OUT TO SEA FOR LONGER THAN HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN?
JUST SPECULATING,

ANNIE GRIGGS NORWOOD(WIDOW) AND SON LESLIE WERE STILL IN CUMBERLAND MAINE IN THE 1910 CENSUS LIVING IN HER MOTHER'S HOME

IN ADDITION TO EVERETT NORWOOD THERE ARE THE FOLLOWING NORWOODS LISTED IN PORTLAND MAINE DIRECTORIES ***DATES
