This is much appreciated
Billy was adopted after his birth and his son is trying to learn something about the Mitchem famiily

We are researching this very family and are trying to help him in his quest as well

He is new to Genealogy

I think that Billy's adopted father was Lawrence Houston Mitchum and mother Ida ? we dont know Ida's maiden name however he says that Billys mother was named Mamie

Lawrence and Ida did have a daughter named Mamie on the 1920 Census she was age 17 however Lawrence and Ida did not marry until after 1910 cause Lawrence was on the 1910 census with his parents Lawrence wife was named Ida I think maybe Mamie might have been from a previous marriage for Ida but since i dont know her maiden name makes it kinda hard to trace her if she was in fact married prior to Lawrence

I believe his mother might have been Mamie and that she perhaps wasnt married when billy was born and that her father raised him as a Mitchem

WE do know Billy real fathers name but cant find him on the census records

The obit might tell us a lot so if you can find one we would be forever greatful

I have requested a marriage lookup in both Gaston and Lincoln Co NC for Lawrence and Ida'a marriage records
in hopes of learning her maiden name or her first married name if she was married before
