George Levi Cramp (1942-2013)

I have not seen the actual Obituary notice but I am aware that George Levi Cramp (Jr) born in Woolwich or Wiscasset, Maine died in Lakeland, Florida on Nov 26, 2013.  George was my Uncle by my birth family.  I was put up for adoption after I was born and had found George as part of my genealogy research.  Unfortunatly the family was estranged and I was not able to get a lot of information but George was very nice and shared what he knew.  Thank you George and RIP.

Fast Forward to 2005, I had a son, and I wanted to give to him his heritage, both family and genetic. When I got married my mother gave me my adoption probate paperwork.  On it I had my birth…
