I am in search of my dads birth place and where he was adopted here is the info.
ISO my dad Kenyon Richard Bennett (went by mostly, Ken Bennett)
Well first does your state have a birth index, then or adoption index> Registry?
Dad was born on 01/24/1910 where and fam. is what I am searching for, then he was adopted by whom and where is the second thing, I am searching for...
His info: name (Adopted): Kenyon Richard Bennett, was adopted by a strict German couple name and state unknown... He did receive his SS # in 1951 in Ill.
There was a sm. named movie star (I think) was his birth mom, names associated with her were June, Leotia... Beinke or Bienke were associated with him??? He was smart and secretive, why I don't know. Married 4 times, first wife's name unk, but she was an aerialist hung by her teeth in a circus, second wife my mom was Lillian Annette. Then he married a Pat last name unknown, then he married a Martha Webb who he was married to till he passed, his DOD was 01/12/1972 in Ormand Bch. FL. the funeral and cremation and obit all were from Woodward Funeral Home in Ormond Bch. FL. they now say they don't have any info. anymore on him I do have the Obit. death cert # and Vital Stat. says he wasn't born in FL.... I just can't find where he was born and adop. to or by, or states.....
Dad was the original Dr. I.Q. of early radio, a baseball announcer, had a station called (ready kill o watt) in Idaho, was a Moose Member, he also worked in radio broadcasts in St. Louis, in his last years he worked as a manufacturing Representative with Murray Sales of Atlanta, Georgia. His obit. says he came from Charlotte, North Carolina but he married my mom in Utah, Martha and Pat in FL.
Dad was well known for his intelligence he designed the paper hosp. and Dr. gowns they still use today, place mats and napkins in all airlines, restaurants, hospitals.... He was a trav. salesman and I do know he traveled every state, as he used to bring me a plate from every state he went to I am the eldest of 5 kids... none of us know much about him but I do remember him telling me he was adopted by a strick German couple... I do have his Death Cert. numbers, C1520448-72-007877, and his SS number, 318-10-3453. If any of this sounds familiar to anyone please contact me. Kathryn Bennett email [email protected]
I did get his death cert. it said where he dies and he was from FL. I wrote to Vital Stat. They denied it, I have a picture that was in the paper his Obit., I tried numerous times calling them and they denied having any info. any more (back in 1972) I went to the funeral and my brother and I signed the cremation papers and my brother picked up the ashes a fewdays later, and still has him and our moms ashes, moms name was Lillian Annette Smith neither were Morman, Kenyon Richard Bennett were married in Ogden Utah, none on him is in the LDS records>>went to the SS office and they showed me there was not a thing on him... I sent for a numendent on him. Rec. it and it had all different dates on it not pertaining to dad and most of the info. was after he had passed??? So that was that??? I haven't thought of writing Volusia County, that is a GOOD idea, I will do it.
Dad was not in the military, and have run him for wants and warrents all through the states, but couldn't find a Dr. lic. on him either, so no licence but he has a clean record, another GOOD idea is to get the divorce records I will do this also... dad was a w/male... When he passed he was married to a Martha Webb Bennett she was from Popular Bluff Missouri has a son that was a Dr. there at the time... Dad usually went by Ken Bennett.

he was creamated on 01/19/1972 at Woodward Funeral Home in Ormond Bch. FL. But they now have no record of it.. dad was adopted when I don't know at the age is a mystery, heard he was born in other states but they all say no also all I know is I remember him telling me he was adopted by a strick german couple, and dad named a younger sister Leotia he said it was for his mom it was her name I don't know if it was his birth or adopted name.. Vital stats says they have no record, can't find immig. records on him, SS sent me a numendent with dates (after) dad passed didn't make sense to me.. But now I don't know who to go to..
