My aunt was adopted out as were her brother and sisters. She has tried but the records are sealed. She is very freckled and red hair.Her info is limited to : Mother Catherine, died in 1936. Father was Joseph or Jacob. They were in Ithica, NY. The brother was Carl,sisters: Naomi and Beatrice. If any one can shed some light on this it would be appreciated, our own family knows its roots back to before the revolutionary war and she only has her own children to look to for "likeness".
Thankyou, Susan Wysong

Hi. I received this message. Can anyone help?
My aunt was one of 4 Drake children in Ithica NY. The adoption records
have been sealed. She and they were
given new names. Her father was unable to care for the children after
the mother died in 1936.
My aunts name and birthday: 5-4-1929 Catherine Ann Drake. Her brother and
sisters were Carl,Naomi,and
Our family knows "US" back to before the revolutionary war. She would
like to find someone to see a likness of
herself . As it is now she has only her children and grand children. The
trait of red hair and freckles is very
pronounced in her children and the 3 grand children. Any directions
would be appreciated.
