[MI] GEORGE LEROY HARRIS, b. 1925

I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT "GEORGE LEROY HARRIS", MY BIOLOGICAL FATHER. HE WAS BORN IN 1925. MY BIRTH CERTIFICATE SAYS HE WAS BORN IN PETOSKEY, MICHIGAN BUT I AM NOT SURE BIRTHPLACE IS ACCURATE. IN 1947-1948 HE MARRIED JULIA ANN LEWIS (MY MOTHER) OF SALEM, MICHIGAN. THEY MAY HAVE MET AT EASTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY (THEN CALLED "MICHIGAN STATE NORMAL TEACHER'S COLLEGE") IN YPSILANTI, MICHIGAN. I WAS BORN IN 1948. MY MOTHER ATTENDED NORTHVILLE HIGH SCHOOL IN NORTHVILLE, MICHIGAN. MY FAMILY, THE LEWIS FAMILY, HAS LIVED IN SALEM, MICHIGAN SINCE 1879 AND WE WERE THE UNDISPUTED FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN SETTLERS THERE (AND FAMILY YET LIVES THERE NOW.) MY PARENTS DIVORCED APPROXIMATELY 1949-1950. (HIS PARENTS COULD HAVE BEEN NAMED LEE AND GEORGIA HARRIS, WHICH IS SO FAR HERESAY. THE HALL OF RECORDS IN PETOSKEY BURNED DOWN DECADES AGO AND DESTROYED ALL EARLY FILES. HE COULD HAVE BEEN BORN IN GEORGIA BUT DID NOT KNOW IT.) ANY INFORMATION, SUGGESTIONS, WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
