86 Year old ADOPTEE looking for relatives - DAVIS-STRANGE-MITCHELL-MANLEY-WHITE-
Posted by: kyan hayden (ID *****6927) Date: August 22, 2012 at 12:07:04
  of 221

My grandpa was adopted and we have little information but due to DNA have a few surnames. He was born 3 Jan 1926 in OKC.
Apparently (if the info is truthful) his birth mother was Eva Juanita Davis (unmarried & 18 at birth), born in Missouri but living in Chelsea, OK at time of birth.
DNA has supported the birthmother (maternal) as a "Davis".
DNA has given these names for (paternal) distant cousins:
STRANGE
MITCHELL
MANLEY
WHITE
HOLLAND
and a few others.

I have located a "Strange" family group that resided in Chelsea, OK-so this is our first good lead, as we have no facts that the information we do have is truthful. And second that DNA has confirmed a good link to DAVIS maternally.

Please, if anyone knows anything, let us know. We don't want to cause any trouble for anyone, but my 86 year old grandpa (and the rest of us) would love to know at least our heritage!

Thank you in advance to anyone willing to help.
Kyan Hayden
