Dear Diane: I wish I could help you with the Foor family but perhaps you can help me, if you would. My birth name was Allen George Foor, though I was adopted as an infant by the Lanigan family. I know I was born in Phoenixville, Pa. on Dec. 8, 1945 but other than a very vague idea that my birth mother's name might have been Helen I know nothing else other than she was apparently over 18 and either didn't know who my father was or more likely just preferred not to list him on the birth certificate as anything but "Unknown." Have you ever heard any rumors, gossip, anything like that from any members of the Foor family you might have been in contact with about a child having been pout up for adoption in that area at that time? I think by now the taboos against adoption and illegitimacy have been discarded, so perhaps someone knows something. Certainly anything you can do to assist me would be greatly appreciated. I am really only looking for health information, but if anything else turned up that would be fine. Thank you so much for your kind attention. You can best reach me at pastorneale@earthlink.net Thank you again. Rev. Neale Lanigan
