Cookeville Woman Re-Unites With Mom In Ohio

A Cookeville woman and her birth mother have been reunited in Ohio after 39 years thanks to a conversation among employees at a newspaper where the younger woman placed an ad searching for her mother. The Toledo Blade newspaper reports that 39-year-old Abigail Flores Hall, of Cookeville, called its classified section to place an ad with information about her birth mother. Details included her mother's age and that her mother's siblings included two sets of twins. An ad saleswoman mentioned the item to a co-worker who thought the information sounded like her aunt and uncle's family. She found that a cousin was given up for adoption. The newspapers says Flores Hall and 55-year-old mother Maria Martinez met Wednesday in a tearful reunion.
