Help needed finding info about father

Published 5:55 pm Friday, December 16, 2011

Dear Editor,

I am looking for my biological father, Jefferson Allen Ray, born in Decatur in 1923.

Due to medical history, I would like to obtain any information regarding any health issues, due to cancer and other health matters in my family.

I was born to Jefferson A. Ray and Opal McGlaughn in January of 1953 in Gadsden.

I have only been able to find out that he may have lived in Jemison.

Please contact me if anyone has any information that would be helpful to me and my family.

I may be contacted at (260) 726-0886 or (260) 726-2172, or by email at
