I'm searching for information about my grandfather. He was Charles C. (Charley) Williams. He disappeared sometime between August 1917 and May 1918. He was reported to have come from MO but I don't know if that is fact. Some one told my dad that he was seen in Hot Springs Arkansas and had changed his name to Wilham/Wilhelm. I didn't know until recently that Wilhelm is a variation of Williams. I have his signature on the marriage license and in an old bible. In each case he signed Williams in cursive but printed the "S" detached from William. I'm no handwriting expert, but I've wondered if that is a clue that perhaps his name wasn't Williams to begin with. He was born about 1890. Last known residence was in Malvern Arkansas. He was either in Malvern or in or near Benton Arkansas when he disappeard. My grandmother was Allie Ashley Williams. My dad, Grant Edward. Other children of Charles and Allie were Ruby Catherine and Carl Albert. I would like to hear from anyone who might can help. Thanks, Gerald.
