GRANDFATHER
Port Arthur, Texas

My Grandparents is the couple on the right,
with Jane Batiste, my granddaddy's sister.

I have been looking over 25 years for my Grandfather.

I promised my Mom when I was little that I will find her Dad. She was adopted at 6 weeks. All she had with her was 2 pictures: one with her Dad and one with her DAD and MOM.

My Mom was very sad. She knew nothing about her parents. When my baby brother was incurably sick, the doctor asked us about our family history. We can not answer. That is sad.

I hope to find the Roots of my grand daddy's family. My Grandpa lived in Port Arthur and he has to be between age 75-85 . Maybe someone in Port Arthur recognizes my Grandpa. If he is dead I will come to Texas to visit his grave. If he is still alive and is alone and need help, then I will do this too. Maybe we have a short time to spend together.
