Hello...

I have spent a lot of my adult life searching for my father. He left me the day after I was born and I only have one picture of him. He never signed my birth certificate and my mom says she doesn't know too much about him. She says his name is William Curtis Jones...his birthday should be March 25 1939. She says he should be 74 now. I was born in Columbus, Ga but she said he was from and probably went back to South Carolina. I have even tried to find an Obituary...I really wouls appreciate if anyone can help me... I've also always wondered if I have any brothers and sisters.

Thanks so much in advance!

Have you tried archives.com? I subscribe to it. You can do a Living People Search and will list if they are deceased. That's how I found a lot of people I lost contact over the years. And, found out an old friend was deceased. You would have to narrow down the city in S Carolina that he could possibly be living in or if you know any of his family member's names, that would be helpful.

I was born in 1989...so I know he was at least alive in 1989. Thanks for your help. If its anymore help I know he wouldve lived in Columbus Ga around 88-89...and my mom once mentioned a son he may have had named Christopher that wouldve been about 18 when i was born...she also said he (the son) died in a car accident.

Listed with an 80+ yr old William Curtis Jones, [also a younger William] was/is Marlene T Jones 65+ -- William Curtis J he is listed in 1 search & not another --

A prior address was Kershaw, SC which is where it is possible he was born - -
see the 1940 census image here

Marlene is listed in Camden, SC

On People Smart - which may be an old listing - is William Curtis Jones age 85 - his relative is Marlene. In Camden SC

On Intellus is William Curtis Jones 85 in Camden with other address in Kershaw, SC - relative Marlene. Marlene T Jones is listed as 81 with relative William

I couldn't find him on White Pages, but found Marlene T Jones[65+) - the info I messaged you - with relatives William M Jones who is abt 61.

IF this is the right family, she may be his widow and Wm M a son - - - there is no way for me to know for sure............

Since he has a prior address of Kershaw, and the William Jones in the census was born the correct year - this William Curtis Jones is a possibility.

I wouldn't know for sure how to approach this - - they may have no knowledge of you, and a phone call, if this is the right family, may be a shock. Many suggest a polite, short letter with a stamped self-addressed envelope enclosed for them to answer you [probably not to Marlene - I would approach the younger William]

Remember - these may be the wrong family altogether............
