All I have are initials for my biological grandfather, which is: E. C. Whitehead. He did not actually have a name, just initials. I have been told he was adopted but by family. I know he passed away in 1986, but do not know his D.O.B. I do know that he loves around either San Antonio, Texas or Austin, Texas. I also remember that he was married to a lady named Civil and had two other children, Danny and Wanda. Tbis is all I have been able to find out, can someone help?
