Leo Bates adoption of Richard Durfee Bates 1923

I am helping my former foster father's grandchildren trace their blood line. On 26 Nov 1923 Richard Durfee Bates was adopted by Leo Bates - his birth name was Richard Woodward. His biological mother's name was Marion Woodward - biological father Joseph Miner - all of this took place in Burlington Vermont. To existing family members we're not looking for anything other than geneology and any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. To the Bates we mean no disrespect and although Dick (Richard) spoke fondly of his adoptive parents everyone should still know the true story of their births.

Thanks,
Shawn Bushway
