  1. How did you find the picture of Floyd Kerley? Do you know anything about him? I have been searching for information for years. Thank you.

    • Hi. Do you know which of the two men in the photograph is Floyd Kerley? It would help identify him in the photo.

      These are all very old photographs that my mother, Virginia Zagorsky had. My mother lived in both Lorain, Ohio and Wheeling, WV. I don’t know anything about Floyd Kerley except that his name is written on the back of the photograph.

  2. Thank you for the update and your fast response. I know that Floyd lived in Lorain, OH. At least it’s another piece to the puzzle.

    • Hi, I am also looking for information on Floyd Kerley. I believe this is my great grandfather, and judging by the striking similarity of the man in the left of the picture to my own grandfather, I wonder if it is him. I have little knowledge on him besides his name and that he had lived in both TN and OH.

    • I know very little about him. He was my grandmothers former husband and they had 3 kids together including my dad before he left. We had contact with one of his brothers for years.

      • Scott;

        This is fascinating. My father was one of three, and was given up for adoption in NYC. what was your grandmother’s name? I am curious if we could be related. I have an extensive family tree on ancestry, but very little information about Floyd or my father’s birth mother, Joan Melvin. Please email me at amielizabethf@gmail.com. Thank you.

  3. And, no, unfortunately, I have no idea what he looked like. My father was adopted, and Floyd Kerley was listed as his father on his birth certificate. Other than some census data, I don’t have much to go on.

  4. Did you check on Familysearch.org? There may be more records there. My mother is deceased and so are her siblings. I imagine he was just a friend of the family; my mother had six brothers.
