Additional Info
My father, Duke, was adopted shortly after he was born in 1953. His adoptive parents kept the adoption quiet; he found out by finding his birth certificate when he was 16. On his birth certificate, his biological mother's name was listed as "K. Murphy". We have no information regarding his biological father. \\\\nMy father's adoptive mother (and family) believe that the biological mother was from Meridian, MS. They also believe his biological father was a service member; though, they are not sure which service and/or where he was located at the time.
