My grandmother Patricia does not know who her father is.  She would really like to know who he was.  Her mothers name is Mavis Caudill.  She would not tell my grandmother who her father was.  We have a name:  Robert Davis.  He supposedly was 24 yrs old in 1944 when my grandmother was born.  He was supposed to be born in Detroit, Michigan.  He was a laborer in a steel mill and supposed to be in the U.S. Army.  He was reportedly killed during WW2.  We do not have any hard evidence to verify any of this information.  I am asking for any information that anyone may share to help solve this.  My grandmother is in her 70s and is very anxious to know the truth.  Thank you all for your help!

Oh really?! Do you know anything else about him? Was there anything engraved on the watch? Anything else you have on him is greatly appreciated! I searched for him and found he had resided in Ohio at one point so he is a great candidate for my search! I really need to find out if this could be my great grandfather! Thank you so much! I hope to hear from you again! Please feel free to message me on here or my email address tricia_leslie_93@yahoo.com.
