And a bit more - searched for James Aylward Develin on the internet and came up with this. If this is your grandfather it appears he was very well-to-do. Probably why your mother had to give you up - to keep the family name from scandal. Here's the info:

Roster of Volunteers of the American Field Service in France, 1915-16-17

Names of Officers are printed in heavy type, names of men who died or were killed during the War in italics [or underlined when linked to the Memorial Volume]. The decorations indicated: Croix de Guerre †, Légion d'Honneur *, Médaille Militaire †† ) were those received by the members while still volunteers of the Field Service. Decorations subsequently received are not included.
