My MIL is turning 85 and has expressed interest in finding out who her father was. Her parents divorced when she was two, she went to live with her grandparents and they refused to discuss her father.

Here's what I know:

John C. Hindman, lived in Phildadelphia, PA. He was born around 1910, give or take 5-10 years. He married Marjorie Swartz. We do not know his parent's names, but he did have two sisters who were called Mae (may be a nickname) who married a Dunham, and Alice, who married Frank J. Shields.

Also, his sister Mary was also called Mamie. Perhaps it was she who married the Dunham.
Way to go Deb!
THANK YOU! I had seen that record, but wasn't able to link it to Shields. She is going to be so excited.

Glad I could help. blush
