Additional Info
BM's father in North Carolina, born circa 1920, military service. BM's 1/2 brother born 1941, military service. BM also had daughter born 1962, in California. At time of my birth, BM was divorced, and BF was married to another person.\\n\\nUpdate 6/14/2018: Thanks to volunteer from this site, I have located BM and half-sister. Conversed with half-sister and planning meeting both soon. Still looking for BF. New info: He played in band in San Diego with half-sister's father, Ronald E Williams, circa 1964-1965, described as a big tall guy, with dark hair and green eyes. Possible name similar to Virgil Hartfield. Info is from BM with failing memory, so unsure of accuracy.
