Am looking for any information on my step-father's adopted parents. His name is Edgar Norman FRATER 1911-2001 but his father was Howard NOURSE and his mother was Esther TARR. Edgar was from Dayton Township near Waupaca Wisconsin area or Deerfield Township Waushara Co, Wisconsin. Edgar was about 6 days old when his mother died so his father, feeling he was unable to keep him, adopted him out to Julius A. FRATER and Elizabeth Frater - I have no idea who else was in that family but would like to know more. Am also interested in the biological family NOURSE.
