I dont have much info though but this is what i do have... Her legal birth name is Janice Denise Benson,was born in 1961 or 62.....has lived in Eldorado,Arkansas;Hawkins,Texas and Shreveport,La...my paternal grandma thinks her parents may still be in eldorado,Ark..I know thats not much to go on but hopefully its a start..Thank you!

I have an Older sister but she doesnt know any more details than me unfortunately...she was only 3 when we were taken...I do know before that happened they were living in Houston,Texas....I know she lived in Eldorado,Ark with her family but dont know them......My dad kept us in Shreveport,Louisiana most of our lives....I know that he was once married to her and had to get a divorce from her to marry his late wife..I was told once they had custody papers drawn...If i could trace her back to Arkansas somehow ill bet her parents stayed in Arkansas..My paternal grandmother seems to think they wouldnt have moved...This is a very tough situation,i have been trying for years to come up with something with my sister but we dont know what were doing on here

Here is what you have given us so far:
Maiden Name: Janice Denise Benson
Date of Birth:???1961 OR 1962 ???
Married: WHO??? WHAT IS YOUR FATHER'S NAME? WHEN DID THEY MARRY??? WHERE??
I am only guessing that you might have been born in 1983 by your handle. If that is correct and if you have not seen her since you were 2, then I am guessing again 1985 they separated???
Divorced:????WHEN? WHERE???
RESIDED: Eldorado,Arkansas; Hawkins,Texas; Shreveport,La
Your paternal grandma thinks her parents may still be in Eldorado,Ark. WHAT ARE THEIR NAMES???

You can help by giving more information.
If they married and /or divorced in TX, that would be great as TX has great public records. You say they were living in Houston, TX before they separated. So the great TX records, for instance, from the Texas Marriages Search Engine, I have a marriage on 8/9/1977 of a Janice D Benson who was 15 years old when she married a Kevin C Beer who was 21. They were married in Bowie County, TX. If Janice was married in 1977 and she was 15 years old when she married (how young they marry there), she would have been born in either 1962 if she had already had a birthday or in 1961 if she was going to have a birthday and be 16. This is the only Janice D Benson I found who married in TX. Would this be her? Maybe they did not marry in TX.
Need some help here.

Agree with all Susan said. Most women keep the married surname - we need to know both.

On the plus side, there aren't too many Benson families in El Dorado, AR, and even fewer who are old enough to be Janice's parents and have lived there a long time. Might as well try the easy things first before searching for a needle in a haystack.

It's just a hunch, but try this family - Elfriede and Harold Kermit Benson. Call and say you are searching for your grandparents and ask if they have a daughter named Janice Denise.
