Looking for my gfather, he put my father up for adoption in 1923, because he was in the Merchant Marine. In 1923 was when my father was adoption by the McLawhorn, my father was 6 yrs old when he was adopted in Washington, NC after 1st. wife died from childbirth. My gfather remarry in Washington, DC but don't know the year, he died in Washington, DC sometime in the 1950's. Don't know much more about my gfather. We think he was station out of Norflok, Va.
His 1st wife was Daisy Lockyear or possible Lockyer both are from Washington, NC.
