Many Happy Returns

A Christmas family reunion had extra special meaning for one Pascagoula family. Mark Armstrong was reunited with his family after being away for more than 40 years.

Mark recently got a copy of his birth certificate and realized his real name was Mark Stallworth. When he was two years old, Mark's parents got a divorce, and he moved to California with his mom. Mark's father, Mark Stallworth, Sr. had been looking for his son for years, but was never able to locate him because of the name change.

The two finally found each other through the Internet and a genealogy web site just two weeks. Mark and his wife changed all their holiday plans, and drove to Mississippi just in time to spend Christmas with his new family.
