One of many Photos that I have of my Father William Graham. I am not sure were this photo was taken. Graham traveled all over the US starting in 1926 thru 1941. When he disappeared he may have rejoined the Merchant Marines. A Christmas wish of a five year old, remains a wish 56 years later to a senior citizen. My father, William Graham disappeared July 1949. My mother, my sister, nor I know what happened to him. A body has never been found. Every year as the joy of Christmas draws near there is this wish of a child thats been with me all my life. The wish that my father might return home would be the greatest gift that I could receive. 56 years have past, no father. The wish is alive and well. As a senior citizen, my wish is to hear from any family members that may be still living. I have left no stone unturned in my search, its as if he disappeared off the face of the earth. Please know that I expect no one to try and find him. Want to share with others, maybe this Christmas the right person will read this note. A little information about Mr. Graham: William Graham born April 5, 1906 died ?????. SS# 044-12-1321. I did send for SS-5 forum.
