I apologize for the delay in this reply, but I only just saw your response today!
Thank you for the information.Unfortunately, I have all of it, except the "Ringgold (Pittsylvania County, Virginia Birth certificates list parents http://www.vagenealogy101.com/pittsylvania-county/http://www.vagenealogy101.com/pittsylvania-county/Death certificates should list parents The form to apply for SS# card requests names of parents for a fee you can obtain a copy" part; thank you for that.
I verified his mother's name since I made this post.I found a small "obituary" of sorts in a newspaper archive, which verified "W. C. Guinn of Richmond" as being the son of "Mrs. Ida Bell Guinn of 642 Cabell Street, Danville."This confirmed my suspicions all along; however, it opened major questions as to who his father is/could be.I have found Ida Bell Guinn listed as single and widowed to a James and also in the household with Mollie/Mary Guinn in many postings, after WCG's birthdate, but with him not listed.I have also found Mary/Mollie Guinn in many city directories and census records also widowed to a James, and have even found Ida listed as her DAUGHTER as young as 11 years old.This would lead me to believe 1 of 2 things happened here:1) WCG is the illegitimate child of Ida and was given HER surname; or 2) WCG the child of the Ida that is widowed to a James; and James also had a sister named Ida.I would like to believe the latter of these 2 options were in fact what happened, but I'm just unable to find anything!! I have not yet found a burial site, nor obituaries for William Clarence Sr or his wife, Pearl Elizabeth Daniel Guinn.I did confirm WCG had a sister by the name of Emma Sue Guinn Bayne.I have located the burial plot numbers for Ida Bell Guinn and Emma Sue Guinn Baynes, which happens to be in the same family plot as Mary/Mollie S. Guinn.(These plots were also purchased by Mollie via burial plot deed, at the time of her son's death in 1906-R.S. or Robert or Lee Guinn.)
If anyone can provide any information whatsoever, I would greatly appreciate it!
