My wife's mother worked at the Southern Boy Restaurant in Romulus Michigan in the early 1960s. While working there she got pregnant and the owners of the restaurant "helped" her by arranging the delivery at Carpenter Hospital in City of Wayne in Michigan under a fictitious name. Charlie and Maxine Markum , the owners of the restaurant arranged and paid for the delivery and also arranged the baby boy to be "given" to someone or a couple. My wife's mother has passed and we have no way of knowing who the baby was given to. We are not sure of the spelling of the last name Markum but doing a general search online these names came up near some small towns near Huntington West Virginia. My wife is blue eyed and blonde hair born in 1959 one to two years before her lost Brother. Please understand we are not wanting to cause no harm we understand this was somewhat common when a young girl got pregnant in the early 60s. We are hoping some family member knows something they want to share. Charlie and Maxine if still alive they would be in their 80s. My wife's brother would be born in winter of 1960-61. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you please call
