I am looking for information on my husbands father

my husband is David Brent Lindsay 1 and he recently died from cancer. Before he died we were trying to find out some information on his father Alfred Blane Lindsay.  We found in a 40's census that he was married to an Agnes B. Lindsay.  There were no children listed in the census. His father later married Geneva Blackwell and had David and his sister Alicia. David used to visit a woman whom he called aunt Agnes with his father in Roanoke, Va. She had an older son than David and he always thought that was his brother. He didn't know that his father had been married before.  We can't find out any information on Agnes or her son. If anyone has any information please e-mail me  carol.lindsay@netzero.net    Thank you.

looking for grandfathers birthplace, burial site

I am looking for John Clements birthplace. He was born Oct 1827. I have found 1 comment about it being in 'ca fr'. Not sure where that is. Also have his death date as 13 Jun 1914 and the location as Toledo, Ohio but have not found any records to confirm this.
He was married to Jane Elizabeth Bosworth on 19 Sep 1864. His children were Mary E, General Jinks (true name) and Hadarsa.  I have records that show Hadarsa lived in Toledo, Ohio from 1910 on.
I found one comment about naturalization about 1846 in Ohio but no confirmation that I could find. Findlay, Ohio is the area where General lived but I do not know if John lived around there.

Do they change last name on birth certificate when there is an adoption?

Hi, I have some ancestors that were adopted after they were born and I was wondering if the original last name was erased forever from the birth certificate. I know Constance lived in a commune in Bossier LA so I am not even sure they were born in a hospital. She was married to a Tony Bryant at the time so not sure how any of that worked. I know that she married a Carl Leto and he adopted my uncles. He even made one of them go by  Carl Leto in school for awhile. I found a girl on tumblr who actually went to school with Shannon (Carl Leto) and sent me a picture. He was like 10 or 11. I couldnt find a divorce decree from Tony and Constance but then I found out Tony committed suicide when Shannon was 10 and Jared was 8. Constance moved around a lot so again not sure how this marriage worked with Carl. The girl on tumblr said Shannon only went to her school for a year. I cant find school records, birth records anything on Shannon Bryant, Shannon Leto, Carl Leto (his age).  I was also told that my uncles were only half brothers and in fact Jared's birth last name was Greenwood but again cant find any records on that.  None of the family will speak about it. My grandma Ruby Metrejon who would have died recently before I decided to start this family tree. 
I hope someone can help me. Thank you

Looking For Holland Twiford Obit (Nov. 1970)

I am trying to find an obit for my great grandmother, Holland Twiford. First name may have been Aurora, but she went by Holland. I found Social Security Death Index information for her as follows:

Social Security Death Index (SSDI) information
Name: Holland Twiford
SSN Issued: North Carolina
Date of Birth:  September  27, 1890
Date of Death: November 1970
Last known residence:  Portsmouth; Virginia 23707

She may be buried in Portsmouth, but thinking East Lake, Dare County (home town) or Elizabeth City, Pasquotank County, NC are more likely. Her parents are buried in a small cemetery in Currituck County, NC.

I have tried all of the major graving websites and several obit sites, but haven't found her using either Aurora or Holland or the initials A. or H.

Benjamin Hartley m. Catharine Rake circa 1830

My fourth generation great grandfather's tombstone references he and his wife, and genealogical records for his children state that Benjamin was born in VA, lived in Washington Co., PA, where he married his first wife, Catharine Rake, circa 1820, and had several children born in Washington Co., PA.  However, I can find no record of them there.  Benjamin was born in 1795, and Catharine was born in 1803.  They had 6 children between the years of 1821-1831.  In 1832, he purchased land from the US Government in Seneca County, OH, and he appears on tax records there starting in 1833.  Catharine died in 1834 in Seneca Co., OH.  Any help you can give is monumental, as I have hit a brick wall at the Pennsylvania line.
