Lt Allen Jacob Estep fathered a child while he was in the Phillipians. His family back home in WV did not know the child's name or who the mother was. The Lt. was my husband's Uncle. My husband always wished that he could meet this child one day but without his name we thought the search for him would be futile.
Recently however I searched on Facebook for the Surname and the word Philipines and I found a young man on there who reminded me of my husband family. I messaged him and we traded information about his grandfather's memories about his father. His grandfather indeed was his Uncle's child.
We really would like to go to the Phillipines someday soon, when we can afford it so we can meet him and his family.
