My birthfather went by many names, I know he had the same name as his father, which was Merrick James Marble, but he also went by James Michael Marble. His death certificate says he was born 12/22/1927 and he was born in MI. I know from other sites that his mother was Eva Brackenbury and I just found out yesterday that I have two half-sisters, one of whom died in 1999. He died on 10/22/2000 in Hanford, CA and he was cremated and his death cert says that his ashes were deposited "at sea off the coast of Humboldt county". I can definitely fill in a lot of information from my birth on. I was born in 1975, I have found helpful info on other sites that led me to find out some info. I have two brothers also, I was born Jason Washteh Marble, hope this helps and I just want to let my surviving sister know that I exist, I am really not expecting anything, I am just curious because now I have kids and they are going to have questions.
