Anne, I am sorry I can not help you with your ancetors. But I am doing research on finding a rrelative of Billy Betteridge, a man who was a pioneer in racing "midget" cars in California in the 1930's. He was killed in a auto racing accident and had no wife or children. Do you know if your grandfather William had a son by the name of Billy that would have been in California in the 30's. Thank you for any information.
