Thanks for the reply, Betty Fox. The cousins we found and have talked to state that Helen never lived in Louisiana and to their knowledge Jesse was never in the military, but I do have this info filed away. Thanks, again.
Also, the SS# you provided is the same as the Jesse Lee Dodson that Eddie King provided...the one born in Yuba City, CA.
And the Sharon Dodson high school info from Exeter High School is not my sister, as her name was changed upon adoption.
The Jess R. Dodson info you provided is another one I have stashed away... Jess Rador Dodson, as another possibility.. born in Missouri and died in Sutter County, CA.
There is also a Jessie "Buck" Dodson born 16 Feb 1911 Duncan, OK and died Mar 1982 in Duncan, OK.
And a Jessie Roland "Pete" Dodson born 31 Dec 1912 Iuka, KS and died 20 Mar 1973 Pratt County, KS.
I have info on ALL of these Jess, Jesse and Jessie 's in my files. But unfortunately I cannot move forward as I cannot confirm any of them as my birth father.
Thanks to everyone for the help thus far. :)
