Great Grandfather/Dead End
I've been doing my best for many, many months to find my great-grandfather. Here is the number for my great grandfather L6LP-47N. I've not only searched here but I've searched other sites and had friends with subscription services search as well. My great grandfather David seems to be well documented. I have an old photo of him. I even have newspaper clippings of his obit and an article from the newspaper because he was quite old when he passed and was celebrated in the town he lived in. A clue from that article was that his father was 103 when he passed. But I just can NOT find either of his parents or a birth certificate. That being said, my great grandfather was black and I wonder if this info is missing because maybe his father was born into slavery? However, this makes no sense because some of the records do say both of his parents were born in Ohio (I can find neither parent). I don't know what else to do. Census records don't seem to help. I don't know where else to look. My great-grandfather and grandmother did exist and not being able to find them over the past 3 years now is eating away at me! Any advice is greatly appreciated! TIA!
