I have on father's birth record; Billy Warren McDonald b. june 30, 1921 Bluefield, wV. Father: Benjamin F. McDonald age 26 b.WV mother Mary E. Taylor age: 25 b. VA
Now, I sent for this just a long shot. Mary E. Taylor # 236p78-5464 b. 6/8/96 I think it is a SS or death thing. I can send to you via email. I have records from the WV State Penitentiary stating that my father 'William McDonald" the above same was paroled on Sept 13 1943 and then that revoked on July 26 1944. "retained to Walls Aug 15, 1944 from Mercer Co. WV. He was convicted for Burgulary and Breaking and entering sentenced from 1 to 15 yrs. his prison # was 29910 record file 6966 FBI file # 1569215.
m Now on his death record: His brother Jack McDonald(of whome I cannot find) wrote father; Benjamin F McDonald, mother: Mary E. Taylor, SS # 235-38-2408, He died on March 14 1972 in DC. His siblings are: Jack McDonald, Juanita, Minnie, Mary. He was m. 3 times. My mom was his last. Miriam Maynard b. 1936 in 12 pole WV. m. on Mrch 30 1954 in Graham Va. This is all the info I have on my father's family. I did not know them you see. I guess by genealogy, I am trying to. Please help with anything you can. Feel free to contact me anytime.

Thank you so much
