My father was born William Edington Coker, in 1921 Fort Worth, Texas and died in 1990. I just obtained his birth certificate. All his family, and my mother is deceased. He used the name William Edington Dean. He was raised by Wade and Stella Elam, of Fort Worth, Texas and 'Stellas family name was Edington. Was he Jewish?Isn't this strange, can you help me. Any cousins of his around named Elam or Coker, they would be 70 to 90 years old.
