Searching for Birth Mom and Family 09/17/1956

My name is Daniel Arthur Welsch and I am an adoptee who has been searching for my birth parents and birthfamily without much success. I have enclosed in this letter, all the vital information that I have in the hopes that someone may be able to help.
I was born on September 17th, 1956 in Buffalo, Erie Co., New York, at the Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital. My birth mothers name was Mary Courtney and this was her married name. I donít know my birth fathers name, although I know they were married. The time of birth was 2:02 p.m. and was a single birth according to the birth certificate Iím allowed to see. My adoptive parents told me, that at the time I was born, my birth parents (Mary Courtney & Husband) lived on Tupper Street in Buffalo, NY.
Arthur William Welsch and Nellie Alfreda Welsch (Rainey) adopted me, and during this time lived at 494 Carlton Ave., Buffalo, NY. Arthur Welsch was a Fireman for the City of Buffalo.
I have the original hospital bill for my birth. The bill is made out to like this:
Mrs. Mary Courtney
My adoptive father Arthur W. Welsch paid this bill on September 23rd, 1956. (In case you wanted to know, to have a baby boy in 1956 cost a total of $167.85). I am currently awaiting whatever documentation the state will send, but it may not prove helpful.
Listed in the bulleted list below is additional information that I feel may help me make my search successful, bear with me on this.
