Looking for info. on William "Willie" Albert LEDFORD, Sr. who lived in Hillsborough County, FL from about 1917 until he died in 1955.

His draft registration card indicates he was born on
January 25, 1892, in Woodbury, Meriwether County, GA. The address listed on the draft registration card was: 614 SEVENTH AVE., TAMPA, FL

Evidently, he left Georgia (possibly Alabama) in about 1917 and moved to Florida.

In 1920 he was in the Hillsborough County Census, living with John & Mamie GREGORY, and was employed as a baggage agent for UNION STATION;

In 1930 he was in the Hillsborough County Census, living with his wife Lelia, and children William, Jr. & Mary C., and was a Proprietor of a Garage.

His wife's name was Lelia (maiden name unknown)

He had at least 2 CHILDREN:
William Albert Ledford, Jr. &
Mary C. Ledford (possibly Mary Catherine Ledford)

William Albert Ledford, Jr. was born April 14, 1923 and died on March 8, 1998.
Mary C. was born about 1925

In 1910, William, Sr. was living in Red Bone, Meriwether County, GA living with his parents:

WILLIAM T LEDFORD 51
EMILY A LEDFORD 45
WILLIAM A LEDFORD 18
RUBIE L LEDFORD 15
MAGGIE B LEDFORD 13
IV E LEDFORD 9
JAMES W LEDFORD 8
GEORGE E LEDFORD 6
EVELINE LEDFORD 6

I have additional information on another family he left behind in Georgia ( a wife & 2 daughters)

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You!
