Before I give the news to my friend and her father that the son of his first marriage (who he has not seen since his mother left with him when he was a young boy, and who he has desperately longed to find) is listed on the Social Security Death Index as having died in Texas 16 May 2007), I simply MUST have more information.
The SSDI gives the date of birth for Jeremy Daniel Spradley as 17 Nov 1973, which I will, of course, verify. The name his sister gave me was simply Jeremy D. Spradley, so I am in the process of verifying that, as well.
If anyone can find an obituary (I have been unsuccessful), that would be WONDERFUL! Or a listing in a cemetery would help. There are several listings for Jeremy Daniel Spradley in Fort Worth/White Settlement, Texas through the years, and one in Las Vegas, NV.
Jeremy had a younger brother, Nathan Still, who also left with his mother. Their father was Gary William Still. I do not know why Jeremy's last name was different from his father's, nor do I know his mother's name.
Please help me. I dread giving any false information--and I would also hate to only hand them the SSDI. Neither they nor I have any funds to spend, or I would do so in order to get whatever is available by going that route.
Thank you for your help!
