William Meck, NJ origin??

I do not know if this is accurate or not. I overheard my mother talking to someone on the phone. Supposedly my grandmother (Florence) had another son. My fathers name is Richard, and his other two brothers are Joseph and Walter. Apparently there was a dispute between William and my grandmother, and they no longer have contact. I never bothered to ask my mother more about it, and she passed away two years ago. My father, Richard Lee Meck, passed away in 1994. Florence Meck's maiden name is Ritter, and she had two brothers, Leroy (or maybe just Roy) and Leon Ritter. I don't know much about my father's side. I do know that he grew up in Camden, NJ. My grandmother now lives in Clayton, NJ. I don't know if this story is true or not, but im curious about it anyhow. If anyone knows anything about this, more information would be appreciated.
