in Genealogy Help by Monica Abbott G2G1 (1.6k points) needs sourcing.  Since he is born in 1923 he should be on a 1930 and 1940 census.  Try to include any siblings that might not have a Wikitree profile yet.  This could lead to information regarding the previous generation.  Best wishes.
Vincent, Thank you for your reply! But that is actually MY family tree you posted! lol And yes, unsourced as I did all my sourcing on
I will definitely take your advice and see where that leads!
Thanks again :)

Her father is shown as William Garrett. You showed July 31 as her date of death and had 01 Aug 1909, which may possibly be the burial date. The birth year is quite different est. of 1817 vs. 1831.
