Back in 1964, when I was 19yrs old, my half-brother showed up at our front door in Levittown, NY, looking for my mother. She could not bring herself to welcome him and ended up in the hospital the whole time he was there with his family. I had many long talks with him, waiting in the hospital hallway, hoping she would let him in to talk to her. I kept his address when he left, but mother found it in my bedroom and destroyed it...so I have no idea how to look for him again...I am now a grandma and live in Nevada. The only thing I know about him is that his first name is Raymond Gene and I believe that some of the Dustman extended family know of him. I suppose he would be in his late 60's by now. The other families that she spoke of were Dudash and Hively. If someone sees this posting and know any information please kindly respond to Esther Sue Tedesco ... thank you! I was born in Youngstown and believe he probably was also.

Would this family member have any Cincinnati area connections? I know a Tedesco in Hamilton (just north of Cincinnati) and perhaps he could supply leads. Private message me with your email address and I will forward the info to my friend and he can contact you if he knows something.

Smile Looking fro my half-brother, Raymond Gene

Thanks for your reply Ohioan ...my married name is Tedesco. Raymond would be a half brother through my mother, whose maiden name is Dustman. She lived in the area near south of Youngstown. I remember her talking about going to the Canfield Cty Fair. And I have a vague memory of going to a farm near North Lima when I was about 6 yrs old. There are other members of the extended family ( Hively, Dudash, Hadlock, Horlick) who have tried to reconcile my mother and her son years ago, who probably know his whereabouts, but we were not commonly in touch with relatives (in Ohio) when I was growing up (on Long Island, NY) I don't know their last names just the ones I mentioned in my post.
I don't know what Raymond Gene's last name would be. I had another member reply with the leads on 3 Raymond Gene's. ( I will certainly follow up on that!) It never occurred to me that his last name might be Gene. I always thought that Gene was a middle name. My grandfather Dustman was gone before I was born and my grandmother remarried to a Hadlock..whom I also never met. I had an Aunt named Anna Horlick and I know there are other Dustman relatives around somewhere in Ohio and Upstate NY.
Again, thanks for your reply...I think am praying that I will someday find him, so he knows he was not totally rejected.

Again, send me a private message through this board with your email address and I will forward to my friend with the last name "Tedesco" for him to act on if he wishes. If you don't do this I can't make that connection for you.

Another idea is that there are several people finder services that claim to find exactly whoever you ask for, for a fee. It may cost a couple of hundred but it would give you closure. I can't recommend any, but it's just an idea.

Maybe you could send him a DM and he could just reply on it. Maybe he is not sure how to send a DM yet.

I don't understand why someone whose last name is Tedesco could help me find members of the Dustman/Hadlock family? My husbands last name is Tedesco and his family is from New Jersey...we met in Nevada. Please let me know what you are thinking?

Ok, got it. Your posts were so lengthy and detailed that this essential fact got by me. Nope, can't help you.

You may want to try some genealogical research web sites, like Ancestry.com, and try searching for the related families. That's my gut feeling if you want to make this happen on your own. My brother found a long lost branch of our maternal grandmother's family in a community 100 mi. away from here that was thriving and which has yearly reunions that we have attended a few times, through his own genealogy activities.

Good luck!

Otherwise, you're just hoping that someone will randomly run across your post and have an answer for you. This is a tough situation because your search and the people involved really span several states.
