I am searching for more information on my great grandfather LOREN PAUL WILLIS (16 May 1911 - 17 October 1942), for whom I was named after. Loren died from kidney failure likely in Salem NJ (Salem County). Loren was born somewhere on the east coast, most likely in New Jersey. I am specifically looking for more information on his parents, who I know nothing about.
Loren married my great grandmother MARGARET HOLMES PANCOST (23 April 1916 - May 1983) in Salem, NJ (Salem County) on 29 July 1933. There is a family rumor that either Margaret or Loren's parents were Native Americans. Margaret and Loren had my grandfather PAUL MAHLON WILLIS (b. March 12 1935) in Salem, NJ. Paul was their only child together.
Any information on Loren, his parents, and their ancestry would be greatly appreciated.
