First thing I would do is order a copy of his Original SS application. 'He' would filled out the info listed about 1940's. Who knows what parents he listed. Would be very interesting. Since you have Ludie & her husbands SS #, you can also send for their Original SS applications. I already sent you the link to order this.

You may not find 'Adoption papers'. Children were often turned out & other families would take them in. A 'timeline' for him might be of help, placing each little tidbit of info (by date & location) as you find it. Birth, Census, Marriages, birth of his children,family lore, Military. Be sure to note who/where you got the info from. Slowly the pieces will start to build a picture of his life. You can also check in the County you found him in on the 1930 census. They may have guardianship or adoption papers. I'll check to see if I can find an address for you in my reference book.

FYI: I would only include one SS request per envelope.

Good Luck,
