A Christmas Wish Remains Unsolved!!!!

The Graham, Mitchell search remains a mystery.


A Christmas wish of a five year old, remains a wish more than 57 years later to a senior citizen.

My father, William Graham disappeared July 1949. My mother, my sister, nor I know what happened to him.

Every year as the joy of Christmas draws near there is this wish of a child thats been with me all my life. The wish that my father might return home would be the greatest gift that I could receive.

More than 57 years have past, no father. The wish is alive and well. As a senior citizen, my wish is to hear from any family members that may be still living.

I have left no stone unturned in my search, its as if he disappeared off the face of the earth. Please know that I expect no one to try and find him. Want to share with others, maybe this Christmas the right person will read this note.
A little information about Mr. Graham:

William Graham born April 5, 1906 died ?????. SS# 044-12-1321. I did send for SS-5 forum. This record states William Graham (No Middle Name listed) is the S/o William Graham and Ethel Mitchell, born in Philadelphia, Pa., Have not been able to locate a birth record or information concerning his parents.
Met my mother in Newport News, Va. Married my mother, Anna Maschek Fasanko in Camden, North Carolina Jan. 1940.

Records say that Graham was born in Philadelphia County, Pa. No census record was ever found. Graham joined the Merchant Marines abt. 1926. Aborad ship he traveled all over the United States and other countries. I have a picture of Mr. Graham if anyone is interested.

Merry Christmas,
