I am researching for my husband. His father was taken from his biological parents around 1946 in Chicago, IL and placed in foster care where he was adopted in 1946. His natural born parents were Leslie Bryan Kennell from Stella, Richardson, NE (b. 1908 d. 1961) and Dorothy A. Mertes from Auburn, NE (b. 1918). I am looking for help with any information on Dorothy A. Mertes. I have found that they were married in Lincoln, NE in Feb 1938 in an article in the Lincoln Evening Journal (Feb 1938). It states in the article that Leslie is from Stella, and Dorothy is from Lincoln. I have come to a wall on this research. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
