Quad, Thank you for all the help you are providing in this search. This is my disabled nieces line and it is certainly a strange one. All I can say is that William and Matilda were living in Franklin in 1940. He was a truck driver. His brother John was living in Hampton. I recently learned that John died abt. 1956. So it could be that William died before SS numbers were out publicly. This family bounced between using the last name of Johnson and Johnston. My nieces Grandfather was born under Johnston and died under Johnson. How in the owrld do you just change your last name!
Don't know if what I have told you helps or not, but I do thank you very deeply for the help!! Candie
