William Rex, born 1945

Looking for information about my father's birth family or my roots...

My mother said that my father found out that he was adopted when he enlisted in the Air Force - he was 17 years old. They told him that his birth name was William Bruce Rex. He was adopted by my grandparents, Hyacinth and Henry Townsend and they named him Ted Robert Townsend. He was born in late December (possibly the 27th) in 1945. He died of cancer in 1971 - he was 25 years old. All of my grandparents and mother are deceased as well so I have no information about my father's birth family. My grandmother had told me that they adopted my father when he was a baby because his mother was very young and poor and could not take care of him. That's all I know. If anyone has any information, please reply.
