    Looking for information on biological family of Stanley Patten

    LJ Averill Newbie

      I am looking for information on the biological family of Stanley Patten, adopted on 12/23/1923 at age 3.  According to the 12/23/1921 New York Herald*, p. 5, image 5, Stanley Patten was given by Surrogate Colahan to Mr. & Mrs. Porter Wheaton Averill of Elizabeth, New Jersey. He was age 3 and a ward of the Children’s Aid Society.  His adoptive family’s records indicate that he was born on September 14, 1918, in Manhattan.  Seeking information about his biological family.
