Hello, I would greatly appreciate any and all assistance that anyone can provide for me. I am looking for a needle in a haystack. My biological grandfather is Roy Breashears (not even sure of spelling) I dont know if Roy is short for something, or if it is a middle name. The only fact positive information I have is that he was a patient at the then named Wadsworth Veterans Hospital in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1951. It is now called Dwight D Eisenhower VA Medical Center. I have called the hospital and they have given me 3 names, none of which were his, unless it was their middle names. I have done research until I am blue in the face and havent come up with anything except dead ends. I have no birthdates, no death dates, not even sure that he is deceased. That is what makes this so hard. I have an approximate year of birth, simply due to the fact that my grandmother says he was a bit older then she. So, I would say 1932 or earlier for his birth year. My grandmother didnt know this person at all, but yet she conceived my mother in about late August to late September 1951.
