Family Relationships
This research is based on the data I have been able to find as of Oct 8, 2022. This represents the current family relationships at this time and can clearly change if more/different information is found in the future. The research include the following families: Hendrickson, Lee, Van Cleaf, Broughard, Morris, Jackson, Dyson, and Wood. I found that some adults had multiple marriages as well as several foster children living amongs the families noted. Some of the children had identifiable biological parents; but, lived part of their childhood as foster children in up to two different families. I have assumed that if a child was over the age of 18; then he/she would be considered as an adult and not needing formal Guardianship parents. However, if a child was younger than 18 and living in a family with a different surname, then those adults would be considered their Guardians by default. If a child was living with his mother's second or third spouse, then no Guardianship would be needed. Instead, he was just living with his biological mother and step father.
