I am trying to find out what my great grandfather's true given name was. Son of Julius Pendergraft and Hester Mallory. I have found "William Sanford Pendergraft, but I have received an obit from Nov. 18, 1936, that says his name was Samuel. Also have done a death search that comes up Samuel William. My mother says he went by Sam, and I am really confused.Samuel was born in Cooperstown, Ill. on August 4, 1866 and died in 1936 in Beardstown, Ill. His children were: Earl, John, Alta Mae and Roy Pendergraft.Can anyone give me any information to verify what his true given name was? Thanks.
