[Send Reply] RE: Kenneth Gray
Dear Larry - We're wondering if it's possible for Dad's surviving family (his children) to leave a note of explanation on his page regarding the wrong birth date and false name "Methodius"on his stone so that anyone doing genealogy work would know they had the right person when viewing this site. Kenneth Gray was born in 1917 according to his adoption paperwork, school records, the 1920 and 1930 census, etc. When he returned to the US after WWII from civilian construction work in the Azores he reinvented himself for reasons unclear to us, making himself four years younger and using "Methodius" for his first name when he met and married our mother. He was able to get a new social security account using that false birth date which is why the death record says 1921. We had no idea of any of this until several years after his death when we came across some of his records and then started checking on everything.
