My dad was placed in a home after his mother gave birth to his sister.  He was only about 7 years old so it would have been 1939 or 1940.  I believe my grandmother had post-partum depression and couldn't cope for about a year with my dad.  He did return home and no one is alive to verify any info.  Thank you for any help and your kindness.

Debbie -- it might be helpful if you could give us his name and date of birth if you don't have a profile for him yet.  If you do, you can just give us the name-profile number.  Welcome to WikiTree!
Thanks for any help.  Boyd-3685  Louis Wilmer Boyd, July 1, 1934.  Thank you again.

Sorry it has taken so long to thank you for your generosity.  Death in the family.  This is the third piece of history that has my dad listed as a daughter.
