William Wallace Donovan

Looking for information on a William Wallace Donovan. I believe he was born Apr. 19, 1901 and died Jan. 21 1968 in Providence, RI. Somewhere along the way I picked up that his parents were a James and Margaret of Charlottetown, PEI. However, I also found out today that he was adopted (and his birth name wasn't known), which of course throws a monkey wrench into research.

He first married a Marcella MacKinnon and they eventually settled in Boston, MA (Dorchester specifically) and had 7 children. He left Marcella, remarried, and had a family in RI as far as I can tell (and it's kind of a touchy subject to those that might know something in my family).

Anybody who can shed a light on this would be held in high esteem by me.
