Rumored adoption

Posted: 5 Jun 2013 4:23AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Clark, Stivison
So my wall is with my 2nd great grandfather or an older paternal figure. there is a rumor handed down through out my family, confirmed as far as a 2nd cousin once removed, that one of the males in our family (suspect is 2nd great grandfather, but could be older than him) was adopted due to a fatal immigration. the rumor is supported buy his sons middle name (stivison) which is said to be the original family name. through distant relatives (mentioned above) i heard more to the tale stating the adopting family quite possibly knew the original family (immigrated with them?). when following the names i get to Charles (son) and his father in PA but the information is inconsistent after that, i believe it could be a similar family. i am still inexperienced and dont know how to tackle this. i have attempted to use DNA to broaden and reach out but haven't had significant success in this area.
