My grandfather, James Lee Childs, was listed on my mother's birth cetificate.  She was born Feb. 12, 1933 and it stated he was 25 at the time of her birth.  He was working in Selma, Alabama at the time.  She passed away at age 25 and I was a little girl and there is no one to ask.  Her mother was married several times afterwards. My mother was born in Birmingham, Alabama in 1933 and died 1958 and is buried at Forest Hill Cemetery in Birmingham.
