My father was born WILLIAM JOHNSON on April 8, 1912 in Seattle, King Co., WA. He died Dec. 11, 1982. I know that his birth mother was named FLORENCE JOHNSON, but I do not know if that was her married name or maiden name. His court adoption papers do not name the father, and only say that Florence and William had been abandoned by William's father.
He was adopted by Charles Albert & Urnestine RAMSEY through the Pacific Coast Rescue and Protective Society, an Oregon Corp. founded in 1907. The Society originally was a homeless shelter for men, but later became The Louise Home for Girls, then the Albertina Kerr Nursery/Centers.
The adoption decree was signed Dec. 19, 1912 in Superior Court, King Co., WA.
I would very much like to know something more about my father's birth mother. If anyone has any information about my grandmother, Florence Johnson, please reply.
