Plz help with Smith Family From Franklin Ohio

Posted: 5 Mar 2013 3:26AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Smith
I would be extremely grateful if anyone could help me tracing information on my Grandfather and his children.

I have been having an difficult time in my research and could really do with some help.

The things I know for definite are as follows.

William Richard Smith, Born 8th July 1912 in Ohio
parent are
(Father)
William Henry Smith Birth 16 Jun 1868 in Ross County Ohio, USA
Death 11 Nov 1947 in kinnikinnick, Township, Ross County, Ohio
(Mother)Samantha Jane Hall, (also known as Matty)
Birth 28 May 1888 in Ohio
Death 21 Dec 1964 in Chillicothe, Ross, Ohio, USA

On the jan 1932 William married Loretta Louise Thiele in Franklin, Ohio. There is much confusion over this marriage record. Loretta was under-age it would seem and had previously been an inmate at the Industrial School Delaware. So she used her mothers name to wed "Norma Carty" ..they where divorced in They where divorced in Los Angeles County, California in October 1942, where her correct name " Loretta Louise Thiele was given in the Divorce Decree.
From the marriage they had 2 children..

William H Smith II Born 20th December 1932, Ohio
and
Norma Jane Smith born 20th February 1934, Ohio

In December 1944 he then married a Juannita Rose West (Turner) in Franklin, Ohio.
They had a daughter Judith lynn born on the 14th December 1945. Ohio
Juanita had a son from a previous spouse called David Leroy West born 9th November 1936

From Military records I know that my grandfather had the following residencies listed as his main residencies.
August 1941: 2846 Blvd, El Monte, Calif
January 1942: 515 1/2 Dayton Ave, Alhamba, CA
Dec 1945: 49E, Russell ST, Columbus, Ohio
Oct 1946: HDQ, Detch, 444th Bomb, Gp, Davis, Monthan fld, Tuscon,Arizona
3d Jan 1947. He was stationed at HQ, 43 Bomb, Gp, Davis, Tuscon, AZ

(Obviously because of these date, I am not able to find my grandfather in any census)

I would really like to find the other children of my grandfather, but so far have been unsuccessful in finding any thing other than birth record and the 1940 census. I have been unable to find marriage records or anything else. The only details I have for each is.

William H Smith II Born 20th December 1932, Ohio
on the 1st April 1940 he was residing at 2870 E Valley, El Monte, Los Angeles, California, United States
Jan 1942:Route 8 Chillicothe, Ohio
Dec 1945: 3626 Walnut St, Lynwood, CA

Norma Jane Smith born 20th February 1934, Ohio
1 Apil 1940: 2870 E Valley, El Monte, Los Angeles, California, United States
Jan 1942: 515 1/2 Dayton Ave, Alhamba, CA
OCT 1946: 3626 Walnut St, Lynwood, CA

I would also love to trace the other daughter of William Smith & Juanita
Judith Lynn Smith Birth 14 Dec 1945 in Columbus, Franklin, Ohio, United States
17th April 1946: 1038 1/2 N.High St. Columbus, Ohio
27th August 1946: 49E Russell St, Columbus, Ohio
11th Feb 1947: 520 Roskuge Avenue, Tuscon, AZ

I would dearly love to try and find the children of my Grandfather "William Henry Smith" these are my mothers siblings who she never got to know

I would be so grateful for any assistance. I have been trying for years now on Ancestry and am not getting any further in my quests.

Best Wishes

Matt
