Herbert Leeroy what? 2 Jan 1922 Sabula, Mo
Posted by: Patricia Manley (ID *****0208) Date: June 30, 2010 at 18:52:35

My dad was born in Sabula, Mo on 2, Jan 1922. I do not know for certain that his mother and father were married. How on earth will I find his birth certificate if I don't know what last name was used when he was born?

As he got older, he used the name Herbert Leeroy Manley. His mother was(Anna or Annie) Estella Yarbrough,(7 Dec 1892-Tenn)Ralph, Fry...she was married eight times at least and I'm not sure what her status was at the time of birth.

When my father was eight years old in 1930, the census shows Estella Fry & Herbert Fry, but by then Estella was either divorced or claimed to be a "widow." Also, there is a letter from an unknown relative that mentions every time my dad got a new "daddy" his last name changed.

Before Dad died, he left a note that his father may have been JG Manley. I found a Jacob G Manley (Mar 1860-Ill)who was living in Iron County right before Dad was born, so perhaps he's the father.

Any ideas on how to solve this mystery?
