anne - Marie Phelan/davitt Derby Uk Oct 12, 2005
I was adopted in 1966 born in Macclesfield to Patricia Anne Phelan formly of Co. Laois is Eire.... I have been in contact with my mother but want to know the whereabouts of my natural father...

I have tried for many many years without sucess....

His details are as follows

John Thomas Davitt - Born approx 1949
Merchant Navy

The Story I have been given is that my mother went to USA and was a nanny for her uncles children and met my father there..... on the details I have he is an Irish American....

According to my mother he was a merchant seaman who lived in New York USA and his family were very highly connected with "St Patricks Cathedral" there..... what I am lead to believe is my mother returened to UK and found out she was pregnant with me but his parents were informed.... presuming they still lived in ISA.

I have been lead to believe that after leaving the navy he went ontoo become a police officer with the New York police possibly in the Bronx....

I have tried writing to the New York Times, searching trhe internet, emailing St Patricks Cathedral but no one has ever replied.....

I no that my father was not named on my bireth certificate....

I just want my father to know that i am alive and well and done okay for myself and that i have a wonderful son....

Please if anyone out there can help me trace him or give me guidence on hw to trace him i'd be eternally grateful.

Id appreciate any communication from any relative

many thanks

Hope that any one who reads this finds what they are seeking xx
