Do you know my grandfather? or any of his family??

Our grandparents divorced and we never knew our real grandfather. They divorced back when you didn't do divorce.

His name was Richard Anderson Stumbaugh,born July 1, 1922. His father was Wiley Walker Stumbaugh and his father was Joseph Anderson Stumbaugh.

They were from Oklahoma, my grandmother lived around Colcord or Silom Springs.

I always wondered why they divorced, I heard he remarried and then we would have family we have never met.

Also the medical side of it would be nice to know.

I don't know if he is still living. Thanks for any help.

    There is some confusion here. The California Death Index lists Richard A Stumbaugh dying in 1988 and the Social Security Death Index has him dying 5 years later. There are 2 different social security numbers, but the one from the SSDI was issued in OK. I also have the cemetery where he is buried in AZ along with his 2nd wife, Ruth.

    Also some possible clues to help track down members of his other family.

    A notice in the 27 Mar 1977 issue of The Valley News, Van Nuys, CA (section 4, p 13) states that Richard and Ruth Stumbaugh of 6019 Hazelhurst Place, North Hollywood, CA have a business R & R Brass & Glass Shack at 18507 Sherman Way, Reseda, CA. Filed with the LA county clerk 7 Feb 1977. File number 77-5932 (the 9 might be a 0. The image I am looking at is not clear).

    The 11 May 1967 issue of the Valley News (p 74) has a picture of Richard Strumbaugh, assistant Sergeant-at-Arms for the Burbank Moose Lodge. (group picture. He is the last man in the top row. The image I am looking at is not good, cannot see any faces.)

    Hey devastedinth...,

    You got some good answers here. Follow the web sites given above too. Below are some sites where people are looking for people to discuss Stumbaugh family ties. This is your best hope of finding an Aunt, Uncle, Cousin etc. that you did not know you had. The LDS site will confirm a specific persons death record, and you can get the Vital Records because you related. See the Vital Records Section below.

    Speaking of Vital Records, you should establish an exact link via records (DEATH, BIRTH, MARRIAGE, DEEDS, PROBATE, OBITS) to track down other possible relations. There are DNA projects going on too, but I think that is too much of a reach right now. Stick to the facts you find in the records.

    It sounds that you are not interested in GENEALOGY of the family, but one particular person. So, I put some sites for finding people too. Hope you find some relatives to share photos and stories with.

    has Richard. He died

    29 Oct 1993

    LR 86401 (Kingman, Mohave, AZ)

    You could ask for an obit look up on

    It would not say why he divorced. They don't speak ill of the dead. It would probably have his children named and his grandchildren numbered.

    has 12 Joseph Stumbaugh. Joseph could have been born 32 to 160 years before 1922, so it is impossible to tell if any are yours, since you didn't put birth dates for Wiley or Joseph.

    You might try a post on a real genealogy board,

    but please read

    before you post there.

    it is honestly exciting! Having Jewish history is a few thing specific and unique to be pleased with. you could now connect the ranks of Harrison Ford, Elvis, Gwyneth Paltrow and Fred Astaire. Sephardi, Ashkenazi, and Mizrahi Jews are all the two Jewish. they're only names for 3 branches of Jewish way of life/faith that stepped forward alongside distinctive geographical and cultural lines after the expulsion from Israel. once you're considered Jewish if your mom is, the prestige of Sephardi, Ashkenazi or Mizrahi is conferred based on the paternal line. Sephardi Jews come from Spain and have been the two forcibly converted, killed or exiled to distinctive international locations during the Spanish Inquisition. that could desire to be while your loved ones emigrated. Jews from Portugal, Italy, North Africa, Greece, Southern France, Holland (area of the Spanish empire) and a few international locations interior the middle East are often Sephardim. approximately 50% of Israelis are Sephardi. Sephardim study the comparable non secular texts as different Jews. They pronounce some Hebrew words in yet otherwise (shabbat vs. shabbos, brit vs. bris, bat mitzvah vs. bas mitzvah). The Sephardi dialect is spoken in Israel. additionally, Sephardim have a distinctive delicacies, looser nutritional regulations on Passover, and could call babies after living family. They used to talk Ladino (and different languages) extremely than the Yiddish of the Ashkenazim. Conversion is the comparable for somebody with Sephardi ancestry as somebody with Ashkenazi or completely gentile ancestry. you could convert in a Sephardi or Ashkenazi synagogue, only as Ashkenazim can pass to a Sephardi synagogue and vice versa. via the way, i don't be responsive to any Jews who might evaluate a conversion in a reform or conservative synagogue invalid.

    You might try looking up the last name in genealogy sites online. Also try researching birth, death, marriage records in county records. You may not be able to access medical info due to privacy laws. Good luck.

    No I dont know your grandfather....A site you could try is (its free) On there they also have the SSDI (Social secuirty death records) If he is deceased you should be able to find him there and go from there. People also load their family trees on there so try searching maybe others on there are connected to you.

    sorry, i don't know who they are. try talking with your parents or some other relatives and see if they know anything about who your grandparents were and find out why they divorced. good luck with your search.
