No relation though. I found Hubbard and Jerome Fortner in the 1940 census living with Wendell and Helen Fortner living in Tulsa. All the data matches except the surnames and Jerome is 7. So did Helen remarry?
Your grandfather did a good job of hiding from the census taker in 1940. I can't find him.
Have you seen this GenForum message on Mark Jerome Wright? http://genforum.genealogy.com/obituaries/messages/8001.htmlhttp://genforum.genealogy.com/obituaries/messages/8001.html Looks like you have seen it -- answering my own question. If Mark was your father, then Hubbard is your uncle. Have you talked to him? He lives in Wichita, KS, or nearby. His phone number appears to be unlisted.
