Subject: Looking for Billy Gene Stamper.

Hi, Well I don't really know where to start with this!
I guess my Fathers name and the only address that I have for him would be good.
His name is Billy Gene Stamper and was from Beattyville, Kentucky.

I have attached the only Photos That I have of him. He sent them when I was 5 years old, I am now 48.

His address was
Billy G Stamper,
416 West Lexington Ave,
Winchester, Ky. OR PO Box 603,
Beattyville, Ky.

The last letter that I have was dated November/4/1964.
All of the letters are addressed to my grandmother, Toni Emblyn, 62 hamfield, wantage, Berks,England.
Who brought me up after my mother had me. My mothers name is Ione.
She was going out with Gene while he was Stationed at R.A.F.(U.S.A.F.) Welford in 1957. ( I was born on 27 July 1958).
I bare no malice or enmity to him or anyone else as in the letters he begs for my grandmother to send me over to live with him.
Unfortunately my grandmother broke off all contact with him and I didn't discover the letters until after her death.
I would love to know if I have family there and to be able to speak with them if they wouldn't mind,
And at the least find out some of my family history.

Please help me.
Yours Hopefully.
Simon Paul Hackney.

Thank you So much!
I am thrilled that you have replied with such kind words.
All I know of my Father is that he came from Beattyville, Kentucky and was in the U.S. Air Force during the 50s in England Where He and my mother were lovers. I believe he had a brother, possibly a twin, but I am unsure. My father was later married to a lady named Peggy.
My mother is alive but has had a lot of health problems recently and her memory is severely impaired.
There was some mention of a Laundromat in Beattyville but whether he worked there or not I don't know.

My name is Simon Hackney., Paul being my middle name.
My address is.
2 Old Coastguard cottages,
PL10 1LN.

My Phone number is 01752 822233. I'm sorry I don't know the international dialling code.
