I've finally managed to locate my great grandfather's death certificate, including the name of his father (which had previously been unknown to us): Joseph Stilley. We know from DNA testing that this man was most likely of European descent. He would have had to be at least in his teens in 1895 when my grandfather was born, and residing in or near the Trenton/Chinquapin/Beaver Creek area. Any and all information would be greatly appreciated; my father is still alive and it would be nice to (re)connect with the family.
