I am looking for my paternal grandfather. My father, who has been dead since 1988, never knew who his father was and his mother died in 1994. Her name was Margaret Francis
Kelley. She wasn't very forthcoming with information about his father. The only thing my mother and I ever got out of her was that his name was Jimmy Canterbury and he was from
somewhere near Beckley,WV, possibly a town called Leslie.
My dad was born in October, 1949 in Fayette County, WV and was raised by his grandparents in Huntington, WV. Since my father died at such a young age of a heart attack, I don't
have much hope that my grandfather is still alive, but if anyone knows anything, I would appreciate the information.
A picture of him would be great because we did hear that my father was supposed to look a great deal like his father.
