Elsie Mae Harris, Leesburg, Florida

I am looking for information on my Dad's birth mother, Elsie Mae Harris - At least, that's what we're pretty sure her maiden name was.

Elsie Mae Harris was married to an unknown man, and had a son known as Buster in about 1947.

She married James Howard Gray, and had a son named James Howard Gray Jr. in 1949. James Howard Gray Sr. and Elsie Mae divorced in 1949, and that's all I can find about her.

James Howard Gray Jr. was put into custodial care of a couple when he was 8 months old, then taken back at the age of two by James Howard Gray Sr., as he attempted to reunite with Elsie Mae. It didn't work, and James Howard Gray Jr. went back to his future adoptive parents, Opal and Thomas Patrick. His adoption was finalized when he was 12 years old.

Any and all information would be welcomed. I cannot seem to find anything about her anywhere, except for the divorce certificate with James Howard Gray Sr.
