I think he was born in Huntsville, Alabama. He had a sister named Maida?? Madie?? I'm not sure, sorry. He also might have had a brother named Johnny. He mentioned one time also that his parents died when he was 15 or 16 and he took care of his siblings by joining the military. I think this was the Army? He later served in the Air Force and retired at Moffett Field, CA. Thanks so much Mr. Adams, one side of my family is just an unknown and I'd like to fill in the blanks.
