Updated September 2, 2003

About Our Family Research



Dedicated to Celeste Lynn

Celeste Lynn was born Halloween; October 31, 1945 to a frightened 14 year old girl from Greenwich Village. She came from a home with a from a strict Cuban single working mother and an older sister and brother. She never knew her father, he divorced her mother right after her birth in 1930.

to The Foundling Home on Lexington Avenue -- while her mother was incarcerated in Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric unit; forbidden to mention the child.

She named her Celeste, after her mother, in the hope that it would soften her into allowing her to keep her little girl. But not only didn't it soften her, she never acknowledged being the baby girl's namesake, referring only to her as Lynn, her middle name.
