Seeking Birth Mother ~ Willie B Hamilton

I am Looking for information on my birth mother,Willie Bell.Hamilton./

Willie said she was born and went to school in Jacksonville,Florida,and her adopted father,Charles Brown,kept her in Jackson,Mississippi so often,he was able to register her there as well.

She said her birth father,Amos Hamilton,was born in England,to an English father,and a Colored and Welsh mother.She said Amos came to the US with his family when he was around eight.

His sister Alice, Brothers Carey,Albert,and Roy , along with parents made up the list.Roy had a son here,Roy Hamilton,Jr,and Carey Had Alice(Named after hthe sister here,along with Doreen(Dora)Hamilton).My mother never gave me any birthdates or time frames,as to when they came here.She claimed she didn't remember the birthdates of my older brother,Charles Burrell.Flemings,Jr,born in Jacksonville,Florida(she was married to a sailor named Charles Burrell.Flemings).My older sister,Linda Merchent(Melinda is her full name),was illigitimate,born in Buffalo,New York.Her father was a Frank Merchent,a mhalf-white farmer.Iam illigitimate.I was born in New York,NY,to my mother,and brief fling with late Beatle John Lennon.

It's my mother I am looking for information on.It seems she doesn't exist.She ordered another woman's birth certificate from Jackson,Mississippi,and put White Out all over it.she always used the name of he common-law husband,Josephus N.Wright,claiming he had she and I,even thought I was not his daughter,and she was not his wife,on his VA benefits.I found this out in 2000,when she went to Cabrini hospital to marry him, only to be told by his doctor,he couldn't(Joe had pnumonia,and was semi-concious).

She even went to City Hall and paid for a clerk to do the ceremony at his bedside.Joe's doctor told her to wait.when they took Joe back to Cabrini Nursing home on East 5th street in Manhattan,they told her to come on,they would perform the rite.
It never happened. Josephus N.Wright died April 17th,2000 in bed. By then ,my mother was getting sicker and sicker.I started going through her things when she was in the hospital.I found nothing to prove where she came from(that was not her birth certificate) My mother told a nieghbor,Joan, she was born in 1927,and that her maiden name was Willie Bell.Hamilton (the names of her parents are on her death certificate, along with an ex-stage name I no longer use).

Her mother was Alberta Freeman,a Native American woman,who raised my mother on a reservation, anfthjer my grandfather died in WWIi (I never got to meet him or my grandmother, nor my sister and brother).If anyone recognizes these names,please contact.

I would like to put closure on this whole situation,so Ican go on with my life in peace.
