My husband's birth father was Harold William Knisely.I understand he changed his name from Knisley to Knisely when he had an argument with his father(possibly also Harold William).
He and his wife(Mary Rufkahr Nelson Knisley) separated and later divorced. He thendisappeared.
Later in life we found him and brought him from Michigan to Georgia because of his health.He either wasn't able to remember or didn't want to remember family names dates or places so I am trying to locate information without having any.
The only things I've been able to find out is that there was probably a sister who died in her 20's or 30's and she probably had twins who went to live with an ex-husbands parents.
This along with the fact that his mother probably went by the name of Dolly and they had moved to Chicago at some point is all I have to go on.
I've ordered a copy of a birth certificate(probably Michigan) to see if that helps; but, any information anyone might have would be most helpful.
