My name is Shirley. Born June 21 1951 to Gertrude M. Darby-Hill, she named me Charmaine Hill.
Given up for adoption at birth. I was premature (28) weeks. Father unknown by name.
Have half brother Douglas Chilson, born 1935 in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan, father is Ora Chilson. His dad and our mother divorced in and around 1940-42.
She then married someone with last name Hill, but only stayed with him for a couple years.
She lived in Windsor, Ontario Canada, where she met my father. he had been married with children before.
My Mom has a mole over her left eye, blue eyes and her hair was brown.
She had a brother named Leonard who has passed away and in a Middlesex County (London) Ontario cemetery. She also had 3 sisters.
She was born in and around the Ottawa area, possibly Russell in 1917.
The family resided in Michigan for approx.16 years I believe.
My Mom regretted giving me up, and came back for me, but was denied. I would appreciate hearing from anyone that may have some info or clue as to what her last name is now, and whether she is alive.
Would also love to hear from my half brother, who is married to Kathleen and has two daughters.
