I am looking for information on my Grandfather Donald Norris. My grandmother, Katheryn Cleo Patterson divorced him prior to 1945. She took their 2 daughters Jean Cloe and Donna Mae to Alaska and there was no further contact from him.
My mother, Donna Mae, believes Donald's mother's maiden name may have been Ida Death or Deeth. It is pronounced Deeth, and she remembers her as "grandmother Deeth."Ida could actually have been his grandmother, since he may have been raised by her. My mother was about 7 when they divorced.
Donald Norris and Katheryn Patterson (11-6-1919 to 6-13-2010) were from the Pocatello Idaho area. It is believed that Donald Norris was adopted. The last place known where this family lived together was in Sylvia, Jackson Co., NC where Jean Cloe was born.
