Hi. I am from California and there are a bunch of Hayter's out here. Unfortunately all I know about my grandfather was that he was supposedly adopted....his name is Vernie Gayle Hayter and he married Lillian Frances. They had seven children, Vern, Jimmy, Robert, Richard, Jack, Linda and LuAnn. My father was Robert Hayter who married Rebecca Flores-Who have since been divorced. My grandfather passed away in 1976.......Would anyone know who adopted him or any information relating to this, please let me know!I was told Hayter was from a German decent...is this true? Thanks for your help.
