I am trying to find information on the mayhan's from mississipi/oklahoma/arkansas.I am looking for anyone related to Bernice Mayhan born in 1933 in Mississipi.She is 3/4 Native American with some Irish thrown in.
Bernice Mayhan never knew her father and was abandoned by her Mom at age 5.She had polio was in and out of the hospital.She started working at age 15 and married young and had two girls before 1960.They were raised by her maternal aunt and uncle.
Bernice then met a man whose last name was Keene.He was born around 1936 in New York.His heritage is Irish/Spanish.They moved to Florida where Bernice became pregnant in Dec 1959 and subsequently had a baby girl in Los Angeles, California on August 4 1960.The father abandoned them and Bernice unable to care for the child who was put up for adoption in 1963.
The child was born Theresa Denise Keene which was later changed to Teressa Jane Luhaorg.I am looking for anyone who has any information regarding the Mayhan's or Keene's.
I was contacted recently by Sharon who thinks Bernice Mayhan may be related to her grandfather.At this point, any information from anyone with leads or guidance would be appreciated.
