Thanks to wayne Morgan for the answer that you gave. We know that he was in Michigan working at the Dodge Brothers. We don't know where he was after the 1940 census, we are looking for some kind of death record. There is a ssn clain for a Buford lake that might fit him but i really want to be sure. It was filed in 1954. He left Johnson county after he had borrowed money that my grandfather signed with him and didn't pay for it. He made the remark that he would never come to laurens county as long as my grandfather was alive. My grandfather died in 1986. Hope someone can help me with this. Thanks joan

He may have filed a Social Security Claim at retirement, not necessarily a death claim.

It looks like there’s more than one Buford Lake from Georgia.
