you want to email me at home, with this info. I dont know for sure but I suspect that your dad might have been born later, cause Leroys middle name was also Dewitt and they only had one child living in 1930 which was named Johnie L. Smith age 2. So I am betting he was born after that.
where was your mothe born at. what state. if she is on the census for 1930 it will give her age but I am wondering if he was in the service and lied about his age to join in ww2. he would only have been about 15 at the time. I will check that out and see what shows up. email@example.com
just put Robert Dewitt Smith in the subject line.
