In Reply to: Gaddy-Merry, NC/CA by David W. Gaddy of 951

David, I am Thomas Gaddy (Merry) son of Don Merry (Millard Gaddy)....
Before my father died he spent a lot of time researching his heritage,
Bessie was born in AR but was sent to a school for the blind in Oklahoma....from there she landed in California where with help from Stephen Gaddy a merchant in downtown los angeles, she was placed in the Florence Critteron School for unwed mothers, it was my fathers opinion she had become pregnant in Oklahoma....my father was born Millard Gaddy march 26, 1920....
Because Bessie had a difficult time caring for him he was placed for adoption, and eventually adopted by the Merry family and his name changed...
I am begining to research this area as there is an archieve record of school at the USC library...
As for me I am a physician and Capt in the US Navy.
