Looking for Children of Robert W. & Ellen Turnbull
Posted by: Jenn Nudelman (ID *****1605) Date: February 03, 2011 at 23:11:24

I am trying to locate any children of Robert W. Turnbull (b. 1902, d. 1967) and Ellen (Seeman) Turnbull (b. 1903, d. 1971). The Turnbull clan website reflects two children, who are now deceased (Dorothy Ethel Turnbull-Berk) and Helen Mae Turnbull-Hazeltine. I understand from census and birth records that they had other children as well.

My father was born in 1942 in Chicago. He found out at 15 that he was adopted when his adoptive father passed away. He saw his birth certificate with the name Ellen Turnbull as his mother and his adoptive mother explained that he had been adopted at birth. He was raised as an only child.

My Dad's wife, my mother, passed away almost 20 years ago. His own mother and mother-in-law passed away about a year apart and six months before my mother. He has mentioned Ellen Turnbull's name to me on occasion and more recently on a vacation to visit with me. I would love to be able to locate any siblings he may have (and my aunt/uncles). He has long wondered about his birth family.

If anyone knows Robert W. Turnbull, Ellen (Seeman) Turnbull, Dorothy Ethel Turnbull-Berk or Helen Mae Turnbull (Hazeltine) or how to locate any other children/siblings of this family, please let me know.

Many thanks,
Jenn Nudelman
