Seeking My Father, George Leroy Harris ~ Born MI

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!

I DESPERATELY WANT TO FIND MY BIOLOGICAL FATHER, GEORGE LEROY HARRIS. HE WAS BORN IN 1925 AT PETOSKEY, MICHIGAN. APPROXIMATELY 1947-48 HE MARRIED JULIA ANN LEWIS OF SALEM, MICHIGAN. THEY HAD ONE DAUGHTER, ME: MARGARET ELAINE, BORN OCTOBER 1, 1948. AT THE TIME OF MY BIRTH, HE WAS A SHIPPING CLERK.

THEY MAY HAVE MET AT MICHIGAN STATE NORMAL TEACHERS COLLEGE IN YPSILANTI, MICHIGAN (IT IS NOW "EASTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY".) MY MOTHER WAS A MUSIC STUDENT. I UNDERSTAND FROM OTHERS THAT HE WAS A WRITER AND VERY FRIENDLY - AND THAT HE SMILED QUITE A BIT.

THEY DIVORCED APPROXIMATELY 1949-50. HE MOVED AWAY. I VAGUELY REMEMBER SEEING HIM WHEN I WAS SEVEN YEARS OLD BUT THAT WAS THE ONLY CONTACT. I CANNOT REALLY REMEMBER MUCH ABOUT IT, BUT I DID NOT KNOW HE WAS MY REAL FATHER UNTIL I WAS 16 YEARS OLD.

HE WOULD BE 78-79 YEARS OLD (IF YET LIVING). I AM SURE HE REMARRIED AND THAT I HAVE BROTHERS AND/OR SISTERS "SOMEWHERE". THOSE WHO COULD HELP, WON'T. THEY HAVE CONVENIENTLY FORGOTTEN. I DESPERATELY WANT TO FIND HIM (AND/OR FAMILY MEMBERS) AND I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP.
