Hi David.

I have deleted quite a lot of the information that was in the Morris Family tree because I think I may have gone down the wrong track and some of the information was not verified.

The name Tunneyhill does not come from the army records but from family Search.org
Film Number: 285164
Digital Folder Number: 4016232
Image Number: 447
There was a marriage record for William Henry Smith to a Samantha Tuneyhill which seemed to fit.

The army records only gave details of mother as Samantha Jane who was residing at RT 2 Circleville,Ohio, USA in 1946 which was a different address to his fathers which was given as N. High Street, Columbus, Ohio for the same year so I assume they must have been divorced by then.

From The Service records, there has been a lot of confusion over William Richard, first Marriage to Loretta Thiel.

I know that Loretta was an Inmate at the Girls Industrial School, in Delaware, Ohio,
inmate number 9681 in 1931.

They Married in January 1932 in Columbus, Franklin, Ohio, USA. Loretta was afraid of being sent back to the Industrial School, so apparently she used her mothers name to get Married, which was Norma Carty.

I have not been able to find any record of this marriage, However according to military information they were divorced in October 1942 Los Angeles County, California, USA where her real name "Loretta Theil" was used in the Decree. Again I have been unable to find this record which makes things very confusing.

I know the names and ages of Williams first children with Loretta are correct as these appear in the Military records with the place of residence.

William Henry II Smith Born 20th December 1932 Franklin, Ohio
Norma Jane Smith Born 20th February 1934, Franklin Ohio

on the 5th December 1945 he Married Juanita Rose West in
Franklin, County, Ohio, USA
They had a Daughter Judith Lynn Smith born on the 14th December 1945

I know from service records that in 1946 they were living at 49 Russell St, Columbus, Ohio.

I don't know if it helps but my Grandfathers service number was: Sergeant William Smith United States Army Air Force 39162970

I am so grateful for your help, I am more than happy to talk either here or through e-mail.

Thanks again

Matt
