In reply to Shannette concerning Lost in Texas from 3/7/2000.... I was put up for adoption by one of the daughters of Joseph Martin & Annie Kopecky Repka in 1940.They lived & died in George West, TX.They were never in Victoria, TX. Joe was killed in a car accident at age 50 in November of 1940...Annie passed away at age 71 in 1969.I am in the process now of connecting with the family, after having found them in the last couple of weeks. Awesome!!! Joseph & Annie had 10 children: Verna, Joseph,Jr.,Edna, Mary, Josephine, Emily, Robert, Stanley, Aloysius and Ervin, with all deceased except Edna-age 93(living in George West, TX) & Robert (living in Kaufman, TX, at age 86).I, myself have 5 new-found brothers and 2 sisters.I am 70 years of age and the oldest of my new siblings. What a story I have to tell about my journey!!
