      You don't supply us with much information to help guide you. Depending
      on the time frame you may find him on census records.

      If your mother was born before 1930 you might be able to back track if
      you can find her on the census.

      Census records are available up until 1930.

      A couple of subscription sites for census records are ancestry.com and
      genealogy.com.

          Hello . I'm new to this so please bear with me.I am having the worst
          time finding my mothers father. there seems to be no trace of him
          ever existing. His name was Chester Mitchell and he had 12 brothers
          and one sister. The only people who knows anything about him are
          dead. It now seems that the story of his demise might have been
          wrong. I can no record of his death or birth. I have a picture of him
          in a U.S. Marine uniform, and I was told the VFW burried him. but
          there is no body burried where he is supposed to be. He was raised
          aroundsouth Arkansas and north Louisiana. I know this man existed,
          but there is no proof of it. Can anyone tell me where to go?

                  Another thing you can try is contact social security in writing and have them
                  pull your mothers original social security application with her parents names
                  on it. Then you can also write the dept of the marines and ask for your
                  grandfathers military file....also you can request from social security the
                  oirginal application for your grandfather the will do a search without the ss# but
                  it takes longer so thats why i'm suggesting your moms even if you dont have
                  her social you still have her parents names and it will be easier for them to
                  locate the record. it will show parents names including mothers madien name.
                  the dept of the marines is very slow and you may have to contact your local
                  congressman or senator in order to get the matter rushed a litle bit. but it
                  will be worth the work.....there is a fee for ss to do the search i believe w/
                  ss# 27.00 w/o 29.00 but i would verify that to make sure the price hasn't
                  gone up...if you hear back from ss# first on your grandfather ss# then that will
                  also make the search for his military file faster.....as far as i know that
                  search is free....sorry it took so long to get back to you but i had to think
                  back on what i did in a similar situation with a missing uncle...its been a
                  while since i've done an intensive search like that..hope this helps if you have
                  any other questions about using these resources u can email me direct at
                  tasanfo@...
