Carl Kuhn was adopted by Richard Waterman and his wife, Grace E. Mathews. Shortly after the adoption the Waterman family moved from Philadelphia to the Washington, DC area and raised Carl Kuhn as their son. Sometime before Carl was 21 years of age, his name was changed to Richard Waterman, Jr. His descendants still live in the Washington, DC area

Helen Ruth Kuhn, my husband's grandmother, was adopted (adoption papers) by the Dillenbeck family of Bradford County, PA in 1912. The post card found in Helen's Bible eventually led us to Philadelphia where we found most of the information presented on this page.
