I am the son of a Mattie Hardeman of South Carolina. I was born August 23, 1947 in Columbia and was adopted (private adoption) at birth. I am not seeking to disturb anyone's life but would appreciate any information anyone might have on a Mattie Hardeman who might have given birth to a baby boy in August 1947. I am a chronic kidney stone former (started at 18) and I have a daughter who began having kidney stones at 17. She is now 24 and has a 2 year old daughter who may face the same fate. We are primarily interested in family medical history! However, if anyone wants to contact me (I was told that I have an older brother. I was raised an only child, so sibling contact and knowledge of who I really am would be more than I have ever expected but have hoped for). I have info on a Mattie Hardeman of Lexington, S.C. born Dec. 14, 1897 who died in August 1986. Her SSN was 248-09-1380. If anyone has any information about this lady and would care to contact me, my email address is HOPPEE@prodigy.net, my adopted name is William Boyd Christopher. Please respond with any info you have, anything is a big help.
