we finally tracked down a copy of my fathers birth certificate. His father's name is Herbert Joseph Starks b. 1915
I believe there is a connection here but there are too many pieces missing. I did find information on the Soc Sec Death records for my grandfather. I am going to send for an original copy of his SSN registration. This should list his parents and their birthdates.
If you have any information on Herbert, please share and I will do the same if I find anything regarding Harold.
