I am looking for any information on Wilton Overton Allen Jr.
He is my grandfather and I am having a very hard time finding any information out about him. He always told us that he was orphaned at a young age and I show him being in a catholic boys orphanage in California when he was around 8 years old. He was born in 1908 and died in 1996. I have never known if he had any siblings or what happened to his parents nor who his parents are. He did mention that his parents died in a war when he was young but we are not sure if this is accurate or not, he never talked much about any of this kind of stuff. If anyone has anything that might help I would greatly appreciate it. I have been trying for a very long time to find out about this side of my family. Thank you! firstname.lastname@example.org
