Only thing I know is that he was Born in NE, and was put up for adoption in York NE. When and who adopted him nobody nows. It would be nice to be able to track this information down. We do know that his biological parents name was Sawyer. Other than we have no other information about him. He was 86 when he passed away and that was in 1985.

Any more information that any one can dig up would be greatly appreciated.

From what my Father was able to tell me Grandpa and Grandma Sawyer had two kids and could only afford one, so they gave Grandpa up for adoption and kept his sister, which is weird because in those days they usually kept the boy and gave the girl up if they couldn't afford both children, because the boy could do work on the farm, and Grandpa's family was farmers in this area.
