Woman searches for her sister after mom sells them at bar over 50 years ago

BALTIMORE, Md. - A mom walks into a bar.  There is no punch line.  Just a punch in the gut. 

This mom sold her baby for cash and her other daughter for a car. 

It happened 51 years ago at a bar that use to be called Ken Tins.  It sat right on the corner of Chester and Fairmount in Butchers Hill. 

Had Kenneth Suggs not been there that night, who knows what life Marion would have had. 

Instead, Ken, an electrician, and his IHOP waitress wife Gail took in Marion and raised her.  She graduated from what used to be EVT, now Eastern.  She lives with her family in Middle River. 

But when her dad, Ken died, his wish for her was to find her sister.  We hope this helps.
