[CA] Wesley Kilgore - Union Parish Louisiana
I am looking for information on my great-grandfather - lived and died in Union Parish, LA, also known as spearsville, lille, farmersville. I am not sure what the exact name is of the town. However, family rumor has his father as a white man and mother is unknown. On the 1900 census, he has a sister named Donie Bruster and both state the mother is from Alabama. How would one go about finding this parent? I am totally new to the geneaology research and is currently using ancestry.com to log in my results. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. By the way I found this website by going to the African Lives 2 posting by one of your members. I also am looking for my birth father who has been missing from birth. Name is Robert Howard Murray born possibly in 1928 - Nashville, TN. Moved to Los Angeles with Aunt and Uncle - Names not known. I know that he may have served time in the California Penal system. How can I find this individual with so little information?
