My grandfater grew up in the sailors home for boys. His name was Frederick Dutcher. I believe his fathers name was Hiram. We never knew who his mother was. I was wondering if there were records of him with the mothers name.
I find the best place to look is www.ancestry.com gather all the information you have like birth day and death date and location (county and state) you could find him there.
Other people asked questions on various topics, and are still waiting for answer. Would be great if you can take a sec and answer them
