    From Vivian Rose Radabaugh: "Mr. Conley: I came across your website last evening while researching information on my birth mother's family. I was so excited when I found much of my birth mother's family genealogy. It was quite interesting, and I share my story with you hoping you can help me with further information.

    "I was born "Vivian Rose Radabaugh" to Eliza J. Radabaugh in 1955. I was (as is listed on your website) the second child of Eliza, following "Jeffrey". Jeffrey was the son of she and Marion Radabaugh, as you have stated, as they were married at the time of his birth. However, by the time I was born almost 6 years later, she and Marion were divorced, but remained in contact. I was later adopted to a wonderful family, and later "John Randolph Radabaugh" was born to Eliza. Although living in different cities, Jeffrey had contact with him when John was very young.

    "I didn't know Eliza had other children until 2002. My adopted family kept me informed about her until her death sometime around 1982, 83 or so, and then I had no more information about her. I did have my adoption papers that listed my given birth name (Vivian Rose Radabaugh) and my birth mother's name, which was Eliza Jane Hall Radabaugh. While searching for information about her in 2002, I found my biological brother, Jeffrey Radabaugh. It is a longggggggggg story, but quite a wonderful one, as neither of us knew the other one existed, but have found an awesome relationship. He is a wonderful man with a loving family and we are in touch continually.

    "Jeffrey and I have confirmed all the information we have about our mother/father and John Randolph. We are very interested, though, in finding John. It is possible that Eliza remarried before her death in the '80's as there are no death records for her under the name "Radabaugh". This leaves us wondering if "John" could have had a surname other than "Radabaugh", as we can find no information on him either.

    "Is there any other information you have that might help us, and would you be willing to share it? I will share with you anything that may help regarding our story.

    "Again, thank you for taking time to complete such an informative website, and for taking time to listen to my story and request. I look forward to hearing from you and hope you are able to help Jeffrey and me in our endeavor. Have a blessed day!"
