Hello, I am helping my cousin Sharon search for her Birth Mother and or Family. Sharon was born Nov 2, 1944 (11/02/1944) in Daytona Beach, Florida. The adoption papers said the mothers name was Gladys Velma Swan and the father was killed in WWII. They told her that she was young with dark hair and she was holding Sharon and crying when she had to let her go. Sharon's adopting parents had no money and this was said to be a family member of a friend or family.
In my search I found Gladys Velma Swan married Kenneth A Fluhrer March 14, 1945 in Deland, Florida. This was not long after the birth of Sharon in 1944. This adoption was started before the birth of Sharon. The said the mother did this because the father was a pilot and was killed in 1944 and her family would not let her bring another child in the house. I am not sure SWAN was her maiden name it seems to be a married name. I do know Gladys Velma Divorced FLUHRER in 1947 and lived in Daytona Beach on Coats Street and worked as a waitress.

Does anyone have a GLADYS VELMA in their family that may fit this time frame? This may be something they have kept in all their life and not told anyone or only close family. Sharon sure could use some sunshine in her life.

Thank You,
Terri

I see a Gladys Velma Sparks Hensley who passed away in 2,001. Link below will bring you to it. If you could find out what Gladys DOB is that would really help in your search.
