Looking for my Maternal Grandfather, His name is/was Cecil Davis.Does anyone know a Cecil Davis?

He lived in the Needles, Ca area around the late 1950's, and Im sure before then as well. He and my grandmother had a daughter, they were only married approx a year, and they divorced. My grandmother remarried and that man ( whom I knew as my grandfather, wonderful man) adopted my mother. Cecil Davis just kind of dropped off the face of the planet, and I am looking for him, or his family. Any info would be great! please email me at calygirl976@yahoo.com thanks so much

    Order a copy of your Mom's birth certificate, and the marriage license for your grandparents. That should give you a date of birth and possibly additional information. There are dozens of Cecil Davis born in the 1930s in the Social Security Death Index. A birth date and place of birth and possibly what he did for a living will give you some good clues.

    Have you looked at your Mom's adoption papers? In my state, the name of the parent who is relinquishing parental rights is listed in the documentation. It might be the case in California, too.
