I was born in St. Louis, MO and raised up in Gravel Hill, Cape Girardeau County MO. I was 13 years old when I was adopted by my grandma & grandpa "MOM & DAD". I moved away from the area in Dec 1980 and came back in 1986. 1997 I was out in Cal. at my half sister when I found my biological dad. And yes he passed away back in July 2018. I hold a CDL licence, and current job is at RMC in Fruitland, MO. I am mainly interested in researching my Thorn and Lademacher family trees.
