QUALLS FAMILY - My father was adopted out...
My name is Laura Norton. My father, Robert Norton and his twin sister Lynda Norton were born to Robert and Flossie Qualls of Shady Point, OK. Unfortunately when they were born their mother didn't make it. All the children (four I believe) were given up for adoption. Robert and Lynda to one family, and my father believes Sailor and Glenda are the others.
Robert Qualls was born to Felix Qualls and Mary Emeline Wilson from what I found today from a family tree someone has made on another site.
I'm interested in any information that can be provided. I'm 25 and know nothing of my blood relatives. Least of all why the children were all adopted out. I've always wondered but my current college class finally made me look into this a bit.
I'm interested in speaking with anyone who knows about this family. I have traced the roots back to Thomas J. Qualls|Judy Austin (Tennessee) and William Everett Starnes Wilson}Sarah Emaline Felkins (Alabama I believe) -- Again, thanks to the wonderful research someone else has done.
