He was born George William Nelson on June 8, 1928 in Los Angeles, CA.
I petitioned the court so I have the adoption records.
His birthmother was Clara Nelson, says she was born in Washington, age 20 when my Dad was born.
It says she was unmarried.
The birthfather is listed as Fred Nelson, age 25, a laborer, birthplace unknown.
Clara was living at the Minnie Barton Home for Women in Los Angeles when she had my Father.
My father was declared abandoned and adopted 3 yrs. Later by Leonard & Edith Row.
They lived in Alhambra, CA.
Clara gave the baby to the Row’s when he was 2 ½ weeks old.
I have a sample of Clara’s handwriting.
