William Jackson born Dec 11 1934 is my Father, This family line has been exceptionaly hard to trace.Due to Margaret Ione Tilley and William Jackson divorcing, knowing that the same William was left an only child havin lost his sybings early in life, that pain seemed to continue down the line, with Conrad and Louella and thier relationships toward thier childen. George Paul, born 19 June 1943 in Portland, Oregon moved to KY, Virginia Ruth, born 12 Nov 1934 in Chicago, Il moved location unknown. My own father who had a deep affection for his father Geo Conrad McAdams lost much contact after his divorce from his first wife Darleen Kelly, and remarriage to Donna Dobson. I would appreciate any help you can give.
Also searching Donna D Dobsons family line. Any information on a Dobson that married Eva Dudley would be helpfull too. Thank you :)
