Joseph Douglas Bozarth 1926 adoption

In my derivation of our family tree I have now started on my wife’s side of the family. Her father is named Joseph Douglas Bozarth and according to his “official” Birth Cert. he was born on January 12, 1926, in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He indicates he was born in Portsmouth, VA (which I believe is just south of Isle of Wight County). This is not on the issued certificate. A family friend told him, after his adopted parents (Claude & Irene Bozarth) died, that his real name was “William Henry Goodrich” and that he was adopted at birth.

So far he has been told by the Virginia State adoption records folks that they have no records prior to 1942 and that he must seek the records from the court jurisdiction where the adoption took place.

Wondering if anyone has any Bozarth information which could help direct this query.
