Hi, I have undertaken researching my Mothers Grandfather's side of the family and have no information whatsoever. It seems Great Grandpa didn't want anyone knowing anything of his past.
We do know that he was born in the 1800's moved from either Iowa or Indiana, that he was divorced/seperated from his first wife, with part of the children going with him to Arkansas, and part staying with their Mother. He was Irish and spoke with a brogue. The Children that knew his secrets wouldn't give them up even after his death, when asked why he moved to the hills of Arkansas we were given the cryptic response:"where better to hide?"
