Missing sibling/Anaphylactic Anaesthetic allergy

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Janette Report 17 Jan 2013 05:05

Late father GEORGE ARTHUR JONES born 25/04/1931 died in 2003, had anaesthetic anaphylactic reaction...resusitated, but left registered disabled. Told all children & Grand children at risk of similar allergy. After death in 2003, found out about 3 siblings we knew nothing about.
Seeking missing half brother GRAHAM GEORGE JONES born 20/12/1953 Dudley Road, then lived with his mum 'Joan Gladys Jones' nee Smith, .at 189, Parkeston Crescent, Kingstanding, Birmingham, before Joan remarried & moved out of the area.
George had married Joan in 1953 at St Lukes Church.

We dearly wish to get this vital medical information to Graham, if he then wishes to make contact with us, this would be a bonus indeed.

Thank you in anticipation of any help you may be able to give, also for your kind attention concerning this matter.
Kind regards.
Jan Palmer.

witha name like Jones you are going to struggle.

George & Joan married in 1953, and Graham arrived, before or after the mariage?

Hav eyou found the other two siblings?

How acn you be sure, with the common name that they are half siblings?

If Joan remarried Graham could have taken her husband's surname. Do you know what it was?

Hiya Penny & Rose,
many thanks for your responses, much appreciated.
Yes, Graham was born after George & Joan's marriage, I have a copy of their marriage certificate & a copy of Graham's birth certificate.
Yes, contact has been made with the other two siblings.
Sibling 1 had made contact with dad, before dad's death in 2003. His name is Richard & he is half Maori & lives in New Zealand.
Sibling 2 called Bridget, was adopted, but found to have dad's details on her birth certificate. Our late mother confirmed this also, before her death in 2009.
Yes, you are right Rose....Joan did remarry, but sadly not able to confirm if Graham took his step dad's surname.
Thank you both again for taking the time to reply, much appreciated...

Chances are Graham was adopted as well then. UNless he's looking for his birth fmily, chances are you'll not track him down.

If Graham were adopted it should say on the birth certificate Jan has for him.
