Thanks so much for the reply. Yes, I have been on this for a while - off and on for a few years now. I do have 1900 and 1910 census files. I'm 99% sure this Wilmer is my grandfather. And I think I found my grandmother, Marie Robinson. But it appears Marie was very very young when my father was born and probably wasn't married to Wilmer. I'd love to find my dad's birth certificate or some other oncrete evidence to confirm Wilmer and Marie are my father's parents. I've been hoping maybe there are some family members still alive in the area.
