My father's name was Robert S. Redman. I believe he was born in Cook County, IL in 1913. He claimed to have been an orphan.

Recently, I found a Robert Redman on the 1930 Census records who was a child of David and Cora Redman. Also on the same record is a David Jr. born about 1920. Other siblings are William, Margery and Dean. Is this your family? Do you know anything about Robert?

Linda, my father's name was Robert Redman. He was believed to have been born in Cook County, IL in 1913, but claimed to not have a birth cerificate. He also never talked much about his youth or about his life before age 30. He never claimed to have any relatives.

Recently, my wife and I found a Robert Redman on the 1930 census in Cook County who would have been the same age as my father. It poses some questions in our minds. Could this have been my father, or is it a different person.

I believe you are the daughter of David who is also listed in that family on that census record. Did your father, David, know much of his brother, Robert, or was he separated from the family? Please respond to me either way. I'm curious.
