Haha, I love the suggestions, however impossible.I also appreciate the willingness to help. I appear to be genealogy challenged :)
Sadly the date of birth is what was picked up off of a possible marriage certificate that I found online to Peggy Oneal. I can't even say for certain that this is my father because of the limited info that I have. Far too many secrets for unknown reasons.
My fathers age would be 68-69, which would have made him 17 at first marriage, ( which matches the certificate) and 24 when he married my mother Norma Jean Beck in 1966. I was born the next year, so the time line appears to fit but for further info, I'm afraid prying is a bust.
I will look for information on the back of old photos etc and see what I can come up with.
