My father was adopted and I just know his father was in military and traveled a lot. I know at some point they lived in San Antonio, TX. That is where my father was raised. They owned a Texaco gas station there. I don't know dob for y dad's father. His father was Thomas Daniel Ice Sr and my daddy is his Junior.

OK this is what I found:

Partition for naturalization in WN District Louisiana
Filed by Thomas Daniel Ice sr, of Rt #1 Boyce Louisiana
Date of birth 19th March 1927 Framington West Virginia
Second parent Leona Elizabeth Ice (nee Jarrel)
date of birth 7 Oct 1926 San Antonio Bexar County Texas
Adopted child Thomas Daniel Ice Junior on the 23 Feb 1955 San Fernando Philippine Island
Date of birth 3 Sep 1953 Manila Philippines
Admitted to the USA at Honoulu Th on 23 Sep 1955 on military transport.
Description, complexion dark, eyes brown, hair black, ht. 3ft-1 inch wt. 36 lbs

Thomas Daniel Ice sr, born 19th March 1927 Framington West Virginia

It does not give Thomas Daniel Ice Jr's name before adoption. I assume there must be papers of the adoption somewhere poss. Manila Philippines. I does state the child had only been in their legal custody since 22 Feb 1955.

Hope this helps.

I could not find a marriage for:

Thomas R Ice and Rena ( Baker ? )

or a

Thomas D Ice to a Leona Elizabeth Jarrel

by Ice1981 on 2013-02-21 17:38:41

Wow...amazing!!! That is my father from Manila. And I didn't really know my grandfather but Leona was my grandmother. And all of the other information is all new to me. I appreciate your research and giving me an avenue to follow in my research. I can't wait to share this information. Thank you so much!!!

by noggin on 2013-02-21 18:04:21

Just a thought Thomas D Ice enlisted on 14 Nov 1945 and was married to Leona Elizabeth Ice (nee Jarrel) in 1953 at the time of the adoption. So I would start looking for a marriage between 1945- 53 either in the USA poss Texas or the Philippines.

by noggin on 2013-02-21 18:08:36

I do not know any information about Leona Elizabeth Jarrell. You gave me more information than I even knew of her, and I grew up knowing her as my grandmother.

by noggin on 2013-03-01 11:26:41

If the marriage above is your g/mother, they had at least one child
