Any leads on a girl born in Jay County, IN during the winter of 1919 or 1920 would be MUCH appreciated. The mother's last name was Crowe, I believe the father's last name was Butcher and the baby girl was named Christine (according to rumor). The baby was adopted and I think taken to California. The mother was also my mother and she died in 1996 at the age of 94. I have waited until after her death to research this suspected family secret, but I have good reason to believe it is true.
Curiosity has finally gotten the best of me and I just can't leave a branch on my tree completely unexplored. If anyone has any clues or ideas........
Thank you,
