Fred Wade

1. Wyoming Co, WV; GenForm; Genealogy.com; submitted by Janice McCoury; 12 Aug 2013.
"I don't know where to turn, or who to call, maybe someone could help. My Mother, Helen Pauline McKinney-Crawford, was born 2/27/1925, in Herndon. I have her birth certificate that lists Fred Wade as her father; mother is Nevadie McKinney. She was born out of wedlock, and was raised by her Grandmother, Virginia McKinney. I would like to know where in Herndon was she born and since her Mother, Nevadie was a school teacher, I imagine it was not looked on as favorable.

"Where would I find out this info, or is anyone able to look at court records for her birth, or newspapers from 1925?

"I live in Rochester Hills Michigan, I am her oldest daughter, she is deceased-2009. We started in 1992 looking for her Father, but are unsure if the birth certificate is even correct...."
