My name is Kathi Koble (full and maiden name is Kathleen Patricia Cree Williford). That's a mouthfull isn't it?
I am old enough to be your birthmother, however, I am not. I live in Lakewood, which is right next to Long Beach. My mother's name was Christina Kelly Williford, and she was born in Liverpool England. My father's name was Ralph Almon Williford. He was born in Effingham, Il. on 4/26/1912. I am an only child, so no brothers or sisters to ask for you. I have recently met a cousin of mine on my fathers side on the internet. Her father was Austin Williford. I believe he was also born in Effingham, Il. There was a third brother, named C.W. (Calvin Worthington). He was the youngest brother, and he spent many of his last years in California. If any of the brothers were your father, it would be him, but, he would have been quite old. I know he was married several times, but I know almost nothing about him. I do know what year he died, and that he was in Los Angeles County at the time of his death.
The Williford family lived in Effingham Il. most of the time that my grandparents were married, but they also lived in I believe Alabama for a time, and Grandma(Step) and Grandpa lived in Tulsa Oklahoma for more that 50 years.
I am at work right now, so I have to go for a time. I promise to respond if you email me back. (Please do). I also am looking for family, and because I am so close to where you were born, I would be happy to look for things if you are very far away.
