Hi, My name is Janis, I had a best friend Debbie DeWing, in High School, 1970' South High, Bakersfield, Calif.

I last saw Her back in the early 70's, we both had small children, She a daughter Sarah, and an infant son and we were all still in Bakersfield.
She had married a Mexican man, I believe his first name was George I do not remember his last name for sure, but for some reason I have always thought Rodriguez.

I have lived in North Dakota since 1981, and have been home many times to Bakersfield, but never able to locate her.

She has several brothers and sisters. Her family relocated to Florida back in 70's. I remember her younger brother was Bob.

I remember her mother had twin daughters when we were still in high school. Her mother at that time 68-70' was married to a man by the name of Finigan, sp? From New York, He was a dental technician. Her Mother didn't work outside the home, she was a stay at home mom, I believe there were 7 children, and Debbie was the eldest. I will check back daily.

I have always wondered how she is, she was a very caring friend. I have very few friends from those days that I would even try to locate, but have always hoped to locate Debbie.

She would be approximately 58-60 years now. Her Daughter Sarah would be approximately late 30's. Her Brother Bob approx. middle to late 50's.

She did have other brothers and sister but I can't recall their names, Bob was closest to our age when we would hang out together.

If you have any information I would really enjoy being able to talk to her and catch up, it has been so long. Thanks all

Still trying....Robert "Bob" DeWing? There were twin girls born into her family in the late 60's. Her step father, can't recall his last name...something very Irish...Finnegan? was from the east coast, a dental technician, or something to do with making partials, false teeth....He is the father of the twins. There were about 7-8 kids in the family...I get the impression at least two different fathers.I've tried facebook....

If you have had no luck, or success, close to a year now, maybe try other ideas.

Sometimes it is easier to find someone who knows Debbie Dewing, than to find Debbie herself.

Good luck on your search.

Default Debbie

Hi Janis, This is really a long shot so please don't get your hopes up. I am also searching for a girl named Debbie that I haven't seen since the early seventies. There are several bits of info that match your search so I figured I might as well give it a try. Please search my name (Jerry Hare) on this forum and look at the picture of Debbie that I am searching for. Let me know if she is "your Debbie"

Thanks. Jerry Hare

Jan,
Have you tried another angle? Do you know or think all these kids had the same biological Mother?
If so, maybe she and her first husband can be found in the 1940 census. If you are not sure of their names and their location then of course that won't help you.
Then you look for the Mother's siblings.
Her Mother's siblings kids would be Debbie's biological cousins or step cousins. You never know which person in the entire family tree might be the person who remembers something about Debbie more recent than your last known date of 1975.
Continued good luck for you on this one.
