Seeking Long Lost Brother adopted by William Lash in 1930-ish
Posted by: Kristen McCormick (ID *****0657) Date: December 23, 2010 at 23:38:06

My name is Kristen. I am a descendant of John B. French, of whom his daughter Ella J French (my great great great aunt) married John William Lash.
Their son William and Anna Lash adopted a nephew around 1930. His name was registered on the 1930 Census as John W. Lash but someone put in a an addendum with [French] in brackets. When I looked further, I realized he was a nephew and I have been LOOKING FOR HIM!!!

Is he still alive? I believe he is the brother to my grandmother and her sister. They were split up when their parents, John Joseph and Viola French died. The girls were adopted by his brother Everett Royal French and the boy stayed with some relative near the Oklahoma/Kansas area, possibly Nowata or just north of the Oklahoma State line in Kansas or Missouri.

Anyway, I am urgently seeking to find him as I have not told my grandmother and her sister of his existence because I want to confirm it.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LETTING ME INTRUDE!! I appreciate any assistance you may be able to provide in reuniting these long lost siblings.
