My father’s biological parents story.

I have been o a mission to find my biological grand parents. For the last 5 years or so. DNA testing my whole family. With the help of expert we found his parents where Barbara Foss and Everett Uplinger. How did they meet I wondered, were they in love? After many email’s with Barbara’s nieces and nephew’s,I found she never married or had other kids. She had been thrown as a small child and had a brain injury. Her aunt Julia raised her after her mother passed away. Catherine Bofinger passed at 21 years old, 6 day’s after delivering her second child Betty Foss. Catherine was the youngest of 9 children.
San Francisco, 1917
Betty was adopted by the Harrow family and they moved to L.A. where she became a writer for day’s of our lives, and her daughter Susan Hayes became the star of the show marrying her leading man William Hayes.

She also never ha children of her own.
When I asked why Barbara had abandoned my father, like he had been told. Lois said that Barbara was sent to a home for unwed mother’s and she never saw the baby. they also said they didn’t know how she became pregnant, because she had a mind of a child and anyone would notice that after speaking with her. They never knew the father but suspected that she had been taken advantage of.Which isn’t what I wanted to hear or tell my father.

As I research more about Everett Uplinger, I found he worked at the Elks Club in Sacramento, as a instructor, he also competed in wrestling match’s in Reno. He was drafted and died aa a 1st LT in the US army.So he must have been very strong.He also never married or had any other kids. Now I’ trying to find pictures of him and learn more about his time in the military.
