She took him in when was months old,when Katherine went to St.Louis Hospital.He left[Lizs]her home at the age of 14 and changed his name to Brown.Eliz wrote that Henry fell, at his brothers home and passed away 2 weeks later.She said that Henry had the 2 sons Harry and Francis J.[She called him Frankie]Had 2 daughters and one step daughter.Did not give the names of the girls.Can you Help?? She also named a aunt Maggie{Margeart}Pohl ? And Unkel Letler.Said That Eddie Pohl Home burned down, Who was He To the Family?My Father married Lucy Hanshaw in 1925. They had 5 children, under the name of Brown. I was one of them.I was adopted in 1931 And now a Wolfe. I have known My Mother And sister,3 brothers. Have pictures of John Brown[Frankie], but never met him.He left no trail as of now.I have always known I was adopted and that my real name was Pohl.After you read this I will give you the names of the rest, if want them.
