Here's a mystery. An elderly friend of my family just passed away on Easter morning 2007. We were the only family he ever had. We are in the process of cleaning out his house and boy was he a packrat.
He was born 1913, his parents were murdered in 1914 and he went to live with a half brother(along with his other 2 brothers) In 1918 his half brother put him and his brothers in an orphanage, Buckner Children's Home. He lived there until he was 18 years old. I found a high school year book from 1939, Seymour High School in Seymour Texas. Here's where it gets tricky. He graduated from Seymour High School in 1940.......at age 27. Joined the Army in 1942, was discharged 1945, came to KY for some reason and got married in 1946. I saw his picture in the year book plus we found his diploma in a lock box in his bank. Anyone know how I can get my hands on some old Seymour High School records??? I have no clue where he was from age 18 til he went to high school in 1937 or 1938.
