David, My father, Robert Bruce Codding, was born on Dec. 8, 1895 in Illinois. His father was Milford B. Codding, born in Illinois, and his mother was Lulu Ball, born in Indiana. My father died on February 18, 1957 in San Luis Obispo, California, and is buried at the CDD Fellows Cemetery in San Luis Obispo, California. I know that my father was previously married because I remember a step brother, Richard Codding who served in the U.S. Navy.
I know that my father's ancestry was from Scotland. I am not sure if the name Codding was changed from something else after the early Codding family arrived in the US. Can anyone help me with this, and in finding out my family crest?
