No. Eric Walter Willingham died in England. The thrift shop staff told
Mr. Paganuzzi that the items "came from the estate of an elderly
gentleman."&nbsp; Mr. Paganuzzi approached his local genealogical society
for guidance, and the society published his query in their quarterly
(Burke County, North Carolina, Genealogical Society). I expect there
are many additional clues in "the box" other than the brief description
that Mr. Paganuzzi gave.<br>
<br>
Thanks,<br>

 style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: &quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;;">I am posting
this in behalf
of Mr. Roberto Paganuzzi of <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Morganton</st1:City>,
  <st1:State w:st="on">North Carolina</st1:State></st1:place>. For
several years
Mr. Paganuzzi has attempted to locate family members or an institution
with an
interest in artifacts originally belonging to Eric Walter Willingham of
  <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">England</st1:place></st1:country-region>.
The
items were in a large box acquired by chance at a British thrift shop.
Included
are photograph albums dating back to the 1920s, war time
correspondence, family
vital statistics records, and many other items.<br>
  <br>
Mr. Paganuzzi knows the following:<br>
Eric Walter Willingham was born 1906 in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City
 w:st="on">Hull</st1:City>, <st1:country-region w:st="on">England</st1:country-region></st1:place>.
His
mother was Emma Eliza (<st1:place w:st="on">Graves</st1:place>)
Willingham. Mr.
Willingham was a member of the RAF during World War II.<br>
Emma Eliza (Graves) Willingham was born 1879 in South Somercotes,
Saltfleet, <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Lincoln County</st1:City>,
  <st1:country-region w:st="on">England</st1:country-region></st1:place>.
Her mother was Sarah
(Skelton) <st1:place w:st="on">Graves</st1:place>.<br>
Walter Willingham (1844-1928) of Sculcoates, <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City
 w:st="on">York</st1:City>, <st1:country-region w:st="on">England</st1:country-region></st1:place>.
His mother was Mary Elizabeth (Gibson) Willingham.<br>
  <br>
Mr. Paganuzzi is reluctant to discard the Willingham documents and
hopes
someone with a connection to the family can be located. His address is <a
