Thanks to Both!!


On September 17, 1998 the adopted family of Teresa Lynn Hardy was located.

Teresa was adopted by Robert Scott Ransom and Mary Fay Ihle, students from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Unfortunately, after a phone conversation with Mr. Ransom on September 18th, I learned that Teresa had been shot and killed by her husband, while living in Oregon approx. 15-20 years ago.

Teresa was raised in Lancaster, Ohio, where she also married. The name of her husband is still unknown. Work is under way to uncover the story of her murder and to find the son that we have learned she has.

This page will be updated regarding Teresa as information is obtained. We are finally bringing closure to this story and ending years of wonder for the sister she never new.
