I don't know much about finding birth parents. You might want to try a Google search for such a resource. Maybe someone else at Wikitree who knows the ropes, would be willing to help your quest.

The 1930 census lists him as living in Stringtown, AtokaOklahoma He is living with his adoptive parents Phillip Henderson age 50 & mother Della Henderson age 38. His parents (does not say adopted or bio) are listed as born in Arkansas & Mississippi respectively. His age is listed as 19. He is an unemployed lumber mill laborer. His first name is mispelled & lists him as Iris. His race is listed as black/negro.

 

Maybe this info will give some small clue.

thats not him, IRA was born in Ark, his mother was already dead around 1920 and she was from Mississippi, so was his father from Mississippi, possibly choctaw or cherokee nation, my last name is Indian according to those parts of the country, thanks
