Hello, My name is David Koonce. As a child I was adopted but my my family felt that it was important for me to keep my family name. I understand that my birth father was named James Koonce, born in Fayetteville, NC. in the mid to late 1930's. I was told but I do not know if the information is correct but my birth mother was named Donna Coram Koonce, born in St. Pauls, NC.
I was also told that the family moved to New Orleans, LA. but Ido not hate a date as to this moved. I was born in LaPlace, LA (just outside New Orleans). I was left at a gas station at night.
I had later learned that Donna Coram Koonce had moved to Texas (Houston area) had another son, last name Koonce and after this son was born she killed herself.
As for James Koonce I have not been able to find any information as to where he may be. I do not know if he is alive.
If anyone can help tell me who I am and where I came from I thank you.
I am disable retired Minister for the deaf and I live in Pierre Part, LA (Near Morgan City) If you know me, or a part of my family please feel free to contact. I do not hold any ill feelings to what the family has done.
