This Joseph Gratton was born in 1910 as far as we know.He was married before he married my grandmother but at this time we can't remember what her name was.(The information has been misplaced between family members at this time)We only found out after my grandmother passed away and we found divorce papers from his previous marriage.When I find out more I will be in contact. He never talked much about his family except that he left home when he was 12 (which would put it at about 1922).He told my mom and Aunts that his mothers name was Joan and his father's name was David.We are still trying to confirm this information. All the information we have is from what he told my family, so any info you have would be great.Could you tell me more about the Joseph you are looking up.How many children etc?Do you know where the rumor started about him leaving?Is there any rumor as to where he went? Sorry it took so long for me to reply, but I've been trying to find out more info.Thanks Connie.
