I am the wife of WDougherty... my grandmother told us all our lives that Jimmy was her sister's son's son. Confused?
My grandmother, Mamie Florence Reid's sister was the grandmother of Jimmy. She told us that Jimmys father ran off after Jimmy was born and because of that, they would not talk to my grandmother or any part of his family.
I also have a picture of my grandmother that I swear is the spitting image of Jimmy.
I don't know if any of this is true or not. Anyone with more info?
