Classification: Query
Surnames: NORWOOD, HOWE, Philbrick-GOODWIN, Carey/cary and Howes./Howse/House
According to my father, he was adopted from an oprpahange/home on Munjoy Hill in Portland Maine in 1898-99
He was told that his biological name was NORWOOD, and that the HOWE family had chosen him at the orphanage.

I know that Cumberland County Records and Portland City Records were lost in seperate fires in the early 1900's, but I keep searching.
