1915 adoption record
Posted by: Jan Colton (ID *****4290) Date: August 08, 2012 at 10:44:06

I'm just putting this out there for anyone who may be looking. I'm transcribing Catholic baptism records from 1915 and encountered a notation that the baby had been put up for adoption:

Birth name: Stanislaus Cherry
Birth date: July 6, 1915
Birth mother: Stella Cherry
Godparents: John Maroney and Mary Letican (best guess on spelling)

In the margin notes are the following:

"No father"
"Walter [Schumann?]"
"Adopted name of Rohrman Ma..." Then it trails off into the book's binding"

If this is your family member, the information is found in the baptismal register of St. Margaret's Catholic Church in Chicago
