Virginia Mildred "Jenny" Lee- Carter
My late Grandmother, was named Virginia Mildred "Jenny" Lee at birth. She was born in Roanoke, Virginia on December 4, 1916. Never-the-less, I am still searching for, my father's birth father. My Dad, was born March 10, 1934, in Roanoke Virginia. Both his Mother Jenny, and his birth father were unmarried, at the time of my Dad's birth.
The story goes that, my Great Grandfather, had him thrown in jail. Considering that, my Grandmother, was now with child. Furthermore, that they were going to get married. Although, this never happened.
My late Grandmother, told my Dad that, his birth father's name was Bryan Cole Davis. However, I can not verify this to be true. Whereas, there are no facts supporting this. I have came to the conclusion that, there can be numerous spellings for, this man's name.
My Grandmother, also said that, Mr. Davis also died on the job in Texas. We do not know his occupation. However, she said that, his death, was due to a wind storm. If our calculations are correct, this probably happened in the early to mid 1940's.
I have also considered that, his name might have been Bryant, instead of Brian. Please, help me solve this great mystery. Whereas, my Grandmother, has since passed over five years ago. Thank you.
