I am looking for my birth father, John Allen, born about May 1931, in the Amherst, MA, area. He was raised as a foster child of Alfred Jenkins, who owned a farm near Amherst.
Alfred's wife had diabetes in 1952 and was in a wheel chair. The Jenkins raised four other foster children in 1952, ranging in age from 8-12. They also had their own children, one a son also named Alfred who had a wife named Barbara.
My birth father left Amherst about 1949 to join the USMC. He served in Argentia, Newfoundland, 1950-1951. Jan-Dec 1951, he was assigned to Quonset Point, RI. Then he moved to El Toro MCAS, CA, until May 1952, when he was discharged.
In May 1952, they moved home to Amherst and stayed with his foster father working on the farm for about a month or so. Then they found an apartment outside Northampton, MA. My mother separated, and subsequently divorced him in 1953. John Allen returned to USMC in about 1954 and was last known to be at Parris Island or Beaufort Air Station, SC. No knowledge of his activities after 1954.
I am experiencing some medical problems and want to know if he or his descendants (if he remarried) can be found.
