I am looking for information about my paternal Grandfather, Herbert Star Shock. He was born in El Paso,Texas, and was adopted at the age of 8. He married Lily Elizabeth Hattersley in New Market, England around 1912. They had a son, Herbert William Star Shock, born June 8, 1913. Lily died about December 25, 1914. Herbert Star Shock then re-married (date unknown) to Winifred Hattersley (Lily's sister) again in New Market, England. They came to the United States in 1922, and resided in Dumont, New Jersey. Herbert Star Shock died May 5, 1956 (?) at his residence in Dumont, New Jersey. Winifred Hattersley Shock died June 10, 1992 in Brick, New Jersey. (Herbert William Star Shock - my father- died June 11, 2000)
If anyone can help me, I would be truly grateful. I am unable to access adoption records for El Paso, Texas, and even if I could, I do not know for a fact, that he was adopted there.
Thank you for taking the time to read my message. Bonnie
