The two people I am looking for are brother and sister. The parents were Charles Leroy Johnson and Naomi Jean Mack.
Naomi deserted her husband and children and he filed for divorce in 1951 in Carson City, NV. They had been living in Reno, NV.
The boy was named David Allan and was born about 1948. The girl was Naomi Bonita and was born around 1950. They were most likely born in the Reno area but that is not firm.
The parents were married in Iowa just over the state line from Omaha, NE which was the mother's home.
I have the divorce papers and they list the children as in the custody of the State Welfare Agency. It also states that arrangements had been made for them to be adopted.
What little info I have from family legend says that they were adopted by an Anderson family and taken to Omaha, NE. This seems to me kind of odd since that was where the mother was from. I thought perhaps her family was behind the adoption in some way.
