Hi, I'm looking for help regarding a James J Ryan.I don't know much but here's what I have:
He was married to Mary Ruth Persing who was born in 1892. They adopted a little boy (my grandfather) born 11/14/1921 and named him Robert Donald Ryan (I would love to find info about his birth parents!).Shortly after the adoption (about 3 months) James died, since I assume they adopted my grandfather as an infant that would mean he died sometime in 1922. Mary Ruth was born in Washington DC but moved to Pennsylvania at some point because my grandfather went to Northumberland HS so, I am usure if James would be from either of those places or somewhere else.
After he died Mary Ruth re-married and had 1 or 2 children to John Henry Howell who also died then she remarried a Michael Hare. I'm also looking for information on either of them!Thanks!!!
