Thank you for the information. Bessie would have been my Great Aunt. Clarence was the birth father to my father who is passed away now two years ago. My father was adopted by his step-father when he was 11 years old. He said he did not know that he was adopted until he was a young adult.
His birth father left? my grandmother when he was one year old after having been married to her for 7 years, and living in Danville Illinois there about.
They changed my father's name and everything... (according to my Father)....
I found on my own that it used to be Clarence Garland St Clair Jr. Adopted October 21,1943 in Danville Illinois #9779. by Charles Francis Baker... No other info at this time.
My father said there was a hang up at the time he tried to get a passport to travel outside the U.S. Some problem with his birth certificate.... They had changed his name to Dean Noel Baker Sr.
I have been piecing together various bits of information left to me by my Grandmother, Phyllis Katheryn Shotts, St Clair, Baker, and my father. I am trying to figure out WHERE Phyllis and Clarence were married as well. I have a hand written note from Grandma with the dates of marriage but not where. there was some more information of a family tree, but somehow it came up missing when my grandmother passed away. She had shown it to me when I was young (19), saying I could search it out.....
Originally, From searching with the small amount of information I had to start with, (after my grandmother had passed away), I found out where Clarence was from (even just knowing his full name) and sibling names. Hoping to piece together any info I can on the family in total. Such as the line extending to original entry to the United States from Scotland? Or what passage they took from where? Where they all lived, what they did and who is alive now....Anybody searching for relatives? :) Or can you help me to know how to do a better search? I have so far used and internet looking in different states information.....available on line.....I'm very excited about it all! Thanks again for your help!
