Looking for Henry Eugene Smith, Jr.

+2 votes
I've just begun my search for my birth grandfather.  His name would have been Henry Eugene Smith, Jr.  I am told he grew up in VA, had a nannie on a plantation.  His son, Henry Eugene Smith, III is my father. He was adopted and his name was given Kenneth Paul Huddlestion.  he was born to Henry Eugene Smith, Jr. in Brooklyn Ny in 1947.  As this is a closed adoption, I am trying to find any connections.  I am told his wife (my maternal grandmother's name was Josephine G Smith).  Henry Eugene Smith moved to MD in/around 1947 when my father was born, but I am told Josephine went back to NY.  

If any of this sounds familiar, please let me know.  I've sent off my DNA kit, and am awaiting results.

Thank you
Chrissy (Huddleston) Samson
