I have been trying to find Linda's birthday or birth parents because I believe knowing one of the two or both would open a lot of doors into finding Linda but I am just not sure the best way of going about finding that information.

I am convinced that William Frank lied because there is something "fishy" that went on with the divorce. After he was with Linda he even has association with the Hell's Angels I have heard. Nancy knew exactly how he was and it was her 3rd marriage so I just assume something weird happen with their divorce that he felt he need to hid from everyone. He also stayed with Nancy until David was 18 to the exact day almost just so he didnt have to pay child support so that could be the very reason he took the 3 kids from Linda.

I called the number this morning and got an automated voice machine and did not leave a message so I will be calling it back to try and get an answer. The only thing I see wrong is that it says that Linda is 67 and thats a little older than she should be but it could be wrong.
yeah, it's possible that isn't the right linda. would almost be too easy! i never answer my phone unless somebody starts talking or leaves a message. i'm probably the minority on that though.

it just seems odd that we found all the births and marriages on ancestry.com except for linda's birth and divorce. like you say, something is fishy. the hospital may have more info or possibly florida with the marriage. somehow she managed to prove at that time who she was. the fact that he said he made sure she'd never see the kids again does not sound promising.

YAY! Im excited! I just found newspaper articles about William Frank. In The Daily Herold(Chicago, Illinois) it has an announcement about him being promoted to Airmen Second Class at McCoy AFB. He was a Fire Protection Specialist assigned to the 306th Civil Engineering Squad. "The airmen of Mr. and Mrs. Frank of 421 Mors AVE Wheeling, IL is a graduate of Prospect High School in Mount Prospect."

McCoy is in Orlando, FL. I'm guessing he got kicked out of the AF for getting a 16 yr old pregnant! I feel I'm on a break through here!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why would age 67 be wrong? (or impossible)
You said she got married in 1964. The birth date you give for Linda is 1947.
Why couldn't she have been older than 17, when she got married?

Which phone number did you call?

5thgenSF gave you this:
Linda S Byer Age 67
6640 Trevilian Rd
Roanoke, VA 24019
540-362-8568

I found the same name, and same phone number, from a different source.
My source shows a different address, than Trevilian Road.

Linda S. Byer
6002 Crumpacker Dr
Roanoke, VA 24012
540-362-8568

The phone numbers for two different addresses should be a number you would consider calling.

Did William and Martha have any kids together?
Did Marth have any kids of her own?
If they did, or she did, then YES, Martie Spencer could remotely be related. Read below.

William and Martha may have their own kids, or Martha may have had kids before she married William.
Martie M. Spencer could be William's daughter with Martha, and Spencer is her married name.
Or she could be William's step daughter with Martha, and Spencer is her married name.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Also, I have never used ancestry dot com.
HOW accurate is it?
Is it possible that some of the details you think are accurate, CAME from Ancestry dot com and might be wrong?

Do you have family members that confirm that Frank and Bernice are your Grandparents?
(or are you relying on Ancestry to be correct, when their motivation is based on $$)

heyitsrachel:

The director of the Bath County, Va. Historical Society is going to try to locate birth records for Linda Gayle Smith, or her parents, at their courthouse. Or any other court records.
She said that birth announcements back in the mid to late 1940's were not common, but there should be a record of something. No records at all would be unusual.
She told me to call back in a few days.
She is doing this as a favor to Linda's son and grand daughter.

??????????

Who is Mr. William Frank?
And his parents ......... Mr. and Mrs. Frank?

I thought your Grandfather's name was William Frank Byer.
And his parents were Mr. and Mrs. Frank (Bernice) Byer.
