I am looking for my Half Aunt and Half Uncle. My grandmother Margaret Mary *Rita* (Wilson) (1st marriage/widowed) Higgins Married a man with either the last name of NAULT or McGillis. *The family at this point cannot remember which father goes to which child* My Nana became pregnant with her new husband and she already had 5 children from her first marriage to Joseph Higgins. She gave birth to a girl whom she name Constance in the Boston area *around or after* 1943. Nana discovered that her husband had a wife and family in another state and thier marriage was anulled. Constance was *supposedly* adopted by my Nana's niehgbors-Constance and Thomas Dunn. *She also named Constance, called "Connie" after Mrs. Dunn her good friend* (Nana was living in ROXBURY at this time) My Nana could not afford to care and raise a total of 6 children being a War widow in the 1940's. She then met a Sailor to whom she became engaged. She discovered she was pregnant while her Sailor *again either NAULT or McGILLIS* was overseas where he shortly thereafter was killed in action. Nana again gave up another child for adoption-a boy she named Daniel-he was adopted out through Catholic Charities in around or out of the Boston area sometime in the early to mid 40's (?). My mother was still an infant/toddler when both Connie and Daniel were given up. (My mother was born in 42') My Nana made me promise to try to find both her 'lost' children. She wanted only happiness and a good life for them, and wished she could have found them. Nana passed in 2002, and I am still trying to fullfill my last promise to her; and there are some in the family aside from me that I have heard are also searching for them. I have an older similar posting in the ADOPTION forum and am planning on posting this on the NAULT forum as well.
