My fiance's mother was adopted at birth from Carmi, Illinois. Her name is Donna Sue and was adopted by Fern and William Cox in 1957. She knows that her mother's name is Nancy Walker whose parents owned a store in Concord, Illinois and had since the civil war. She knows that her father's last name was Travelstead and he lived in Concord, Illinois. He has a sister whose name may be "Flo". She was blind in one eye and used a glass eye. She knows that there is a lot of Indian in her father's side of her blood line.

Donna has dark brown hair and brown eyes. She has two children (a boy, Benjamin and a girl, Angie) She is interested in learning about her natural family's origin and about medical history. If you have any information or would like to know anything more from me, please feel free to contact me through email, or this site. My email address is [contact link]

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to hearing from anyone who knows anything and who wants to help my future mother-in-law learn about her heritage.
