Hi…

Have you obtained a copy of Wayne’s death certificate as Sandra suggested as it may list his parents?

http://www.floridahealth.gov/%5C/certificates-and-registries...

FL birth, death, marriage and divorce records can be ordered.

Many times it’s cheaper to get them directly from the state/county instead of a third party though.

Did Wayne’s obituary mention parents, or was there even an obit for him?

Do you KNOW that he had a name change as a minor? [“it would appear that… went through a name change…”] Maybe he was born out of wedlock, and when his mother married, her husband adopted him. Maybe he was given up for adoption and got a whole new name….

To me, his unusual middle name of “Wingate” suggests it MIGHT be a mother’s maiden name; that is an old naming custom. But, it also may be a father or grandfather’s first/middle name too. In other words, it MIGHT be a clue of some sort.

Any chance this is him in a Ft Lauderdale HS before switching to a Miami HS, or is this maybe another Wayne Neal?:

Looks like maybe his first marriage was to Sandra Lew Brown in Collier County (Naples area) in 1969:

Then, they divorced in Miami-Dade in 1971:

Then he marries Sarah Lou Sides (on May 31, 1972 in Dade according to another member’s tree here), and they divorce in 1982.

Is this the same Sarah Lou Sides (born April 6th) who ended up marrying Joseph George Moos after divorcing Wayne:

IF this is her, notice that a “J George Neal” is listed as a possible relative? Now, go looking for him… :

Same 4540 N Michigan St address….

IF this is the same one, he was [maybe] born a few months after Sarah married Wayne in 1972. IF it’s NOT the same “J George Neal”, then who is he?]

Back to Sarah:

Sarah’s obit was evidently in the Ocala Star-Banner:

Wayne’s 3rd marriage:

Is this Raquel now:

Depending on how much you want to obtain more info on Wayne, I think you’re going to have to spend a few dollars on obtaining public records to get more info such as parents names (adoptive or not) and his exact location of birth. That, or try to track down some living survivors that might know something.

Hope this helps some,

Kat
