Deadpool Detective Work

Recommended Posts

@Octopus of Odstock, I'm going to do 1925 (48 names) and 1926 (73 names) then that's everyone turning 95+ this year covered. I'll finish this in a couple of weeks tops. Do ping me a list of names of footballers or actors you want me to look into and I'll happily report back what I find!

@msc, Laurie Webb was a name I had come across before. He didn't appear in the above list because for each Year of Birth I only covered the 500 most clicked on profiles (and then picked out all the ones without death dates), so this project hasn't covered the entire depth of IMDb, but still a fair chunk. Sad to hear about Russell. He has quite a young family too iirc, becoming a father quite late?

Yes, his son Alfred Enoch (Harry Potter films actor) was born December 1988 - younger than me!

 

Also, only the 500 *most* per year - I didn't realise there was so many!

@Ulitzer95, below is a list of actors (or directors) still alive from one of James Stewart's feature or TV films. Imdb has Battaglia dead. I disagree.

 


@Octopus of Odstock, had a bit of spare time tonight so did the names on your Jimmy Stewart list who are over 85. Only found one death – Jacques Roux, in 2006. The five four in gold I can't be sure if they're alive or not – though I'm sure msc will know about Evans. All the rest are still with us!

Charmienne Harker –Actually born in 1924. Lives in Palos Verdes, California as of 2021 as Charmienne H. Krauss.
Virginia Patton – Living in Ann Arbor, Michigan and still signing fan mail as of 2020.
Marcy McGuire – Living in Palm Desert, California and still returning fan mail as of 2019. EDIT: Possibly died Aug 7, 2021 in Palm Desert, CA according to an unsourced edit on Wikipedia
Glen Denning – Living in Ladera Ranch, California as of 2021. EDIT Died May 11, 2021 (aged 94).
Jack McDermott – Living in Hollywood, Florida as of 2021.
Hardy Kruger – Attended a bookfair in Hamburg, Germany in 2016 where he did signing. A few responses by mail from him since. EDIT: Died Jan 19, 2022 (aged 93).
Rand Harper – Real name Ronald Selden Harnack. DOB on IMDb is accurate. Jan 5, 2016 (aged 86). FindAGrave page here.
Joyce MacKenzie – Living in Los Angeles, California and still signing autographs in March 2021. EDIT: Died June 2021, aged 95
Priscilla Montgomery – Still signing fan mail in August 2020. Doesn't want her whereabouts publicised though.
Jacques Roux – Died on 7 Feb 2006 in Ivry, Val-de-Marne, France. Source: Ancestry family trees, but it's all backed up via the French death records here (even says "acteur" next to his record)
Betta St. John – Living in Elberta, Utah and still returning fan mail as of 2020.
Jack Angel – Still signing autographs as of February 2021. EDIT: Died Oct 18, 2021 (aged 90).
Tommy Cook – Lives in Los Angeles, California and still signing autographs as of January 2021.
Roy Evans – Hmmm.. was signing fanmail in 2006 via his agency (who were based in East Sussex). Appeared in a documentary short in 2011. He's a Doctor Who actor though, so better to ask @msc. Edit: Living as of 2017.
Edward Faulkner – Living in Fallbrook, California and still returning fan mail as of late 2020.
Mickey Roth – According to an Ancestry family tree, died in 1997. However, this is false. According to IMDb, he's married to a Janice Arola. Tap this into the residency records and you find the two of them still living, in Westlake Hills, California as of 2021.
Dean Smith – He's an Olympic gold medalist, we'd know if he died. Plus there's a pic on his Wiki from 2013. Living in Breckenridge, Texas as of 2021.

Joyce Taylor – IMDb has this one all wrong. They say she married an Edward Bellison (it should say Bellinson). That's true, but they're not still married as it suggests. The records show she remarried, in 1972, to Richard Perry Hinnant (b. 1943). Her first marriage certificate indicates she was born in 1937, not 1932 as stated on IMDb. Both of them show up as living in Fort Collins, Colorado as of 2021. She goes by the name of Joyce Taylor Hinnant now.
Robert Banas – Lives in Encino, California and still returning signed fan mail as of March 2021.
Barrie Chase – Lives in Venice, California and still returning signed fan mail as of 2020.

Jimmy Crane – Actually born James Justin Crane on 4 Oct 1931 in San Francisco, California. Died 5 Sep 1996 (aged 67). FindAGrave page here.
Donald Dewar – Living in The Villages, Florida as of 2021.
Jerry Gatlin – Lives in Story, Wyoming and still returning signed fan mail as of 2019. EDIT: Died Mar 4, 2021 (aged 87)
Jackie Joseph – Lives in Sherman Oaks, California and still returning signed fan mail as of March 2021.
Ronnie Ralph – Lives in Arcadia, California as of 2021. Signing autographs back in 2009 but can't find much since.
Johnny Russell – Lives in Springfield, Virginia as of 2021. Former U.S. ambassador so unlikely to die off radar!
Shirley Bonne – Autograph hunters have been trying to track her down for years. She's still alive though, in Palm Springs, California as of 2021.

Joan Delmer – Lives in Los Angeles, California as of 2021 as Joan Leajacobson Poncher.
Jerry Jameson – Lives in Tarzana, California and still returning fan mail as of 2019.

Rian Garrick – Born William M. Kaye (aka McKaye). Still living in 2014 according to his brother's obit here.
Nino Tempo – Lives in West Hollywood, California. Doesn't sign autographs. Pretty big though so we'll know when he dies.
Francesca Bellini – Lives in North Hollywood, California as of 2021 under the name Francesca De Simone (which IMDb doesn't have).
Arlene Golonka – Lives in Palm Desert, California as of 2021 as Arlene Golonka-Haenel. EDIT: Died May 31, 2021 (aged 85)
Dan Carr – Still living in Portland, Maine as of 2021.
Edward Fox – Prominent British actor, we'd know as soon as he dies. He resides in London, I see his nephew Laurence around all the time.
Robert Hooks – Lives in Burbank, California and still signing fan mail as of 2018.

Jeanine Ann Roose – Lives in Los Angeles, California and still signing fan mail as of late 2020. EDIT: Died Dec 31, 2021 (aged 84)
Tom Simcox – Lives in Leona Valley, California and still signing fan mail as of 2019.
Bonnie Belle Barber – IMDb has the correct birth info. Married at 18 to a Robert A. Nolind (that surname could be misspelt in the records). Later remarried and now living as Bonnie B. DeLong in Grants Pass, Oregon as of 2021.
Jimmy Bates – Living in Carlsbad, California as of 2020.
Jerry Brent – Living in Auburn, California as of 2021.
Jonathan Goldsmith – Still signing fan mail as of March 2021 via a Vermont registered PO Box.

Timmy Hawkins – Living in North Hollywood, California as of 2020. IMDb doesn't have his birth name but it's actually Thomas J. Hawkins. Brother of Jimmy Hawkins (b. 1941) from It's a Wonderful Life.
Jerry Holmes – Actually born in 1935. Died in Aug 1994 (aged 59). FindAGrave page here.
Eilene Janssen – Lives in Pasadena, California as of 2021 as Eilene Janssen Moore.
Bill McKenzie – Lives in Redmond, Washington as of 2021.
Francoise Ruggieri – French-born, attained U.S. citizenship in 1965, divorced Edwardo Ruggieri in 1971, remarried a James Bush in 1981 in Los Angeles. Living in El Segundo, California as of 2021.

Buzz Martin – Lives in Twain Harte, California and still signing fan mail as of late 2020.
Sammy Ogg – Lives in Valley Springs, California and still signing fan mail as of 2020.
Jamie Ross – Not sure. I've checked Scotland's people and there was no male with the surname Ross born in Markinch in 1939 so IMDb must have his date or place of birth wrong. Makes him almost impossible to trace as a result.
Gerald Courtemarche – Misspelled on IMDb (as Courtemache, should be Courtemarche). Still living in Chino, California as of 2021.
Tamara Fowler – Still living in West Jordan, Utah as of 2021 at Tamara Fowler Adams. IMDb notes that she was a drama teacher there.
Lili Gentle – Lives in Smyrna, Georgia as of 2021 as Lili Gentle Guerry.
Ronny Hooker – Lives in Palm Coast, Florida as of 2021.
Adair Jameson – Lives in Los Angeles, California as of 2021.
Marissa Mathes – Can't locate her birth certificate but there's a Marissa Mathes/Braden, aged 79 living in Texas who may be her. Probably can't trace her owing to a different birth name. Unlikely to die off radar though given she was a prominent Playboy model so safe to assume she's living.
Beverly Mook – Lives in La Palma, California as of 2021 as Beverly Mook Harrell.

Judy Nugent – Lives in Ennis, Montana as of 2021 as Judy Taylor. Signing fan mail in 2017. Married to Gunsmoke actor Buck Taylor (b. 1938) until their divorce in 1983. Actress Carol Nugent (b. 1937) is her sister.

Tom Lowell – Lives in Fallbrook, California as of 2021.
Brian Miller – Still acting in 2017 and a Doctor Who actor. Prolific, very unlikely to die off radar.

Lonnie Burr – Can't track him. Living in San Clemente, California as of 2008 according to IMDb. He was still signing fan mail via his own website in 2011 (now inactive). He was a mouseketeer though, so won't die off radar.

Bonnie Kay Eddy – Can't trace her.
Stephanie Epper – Lives in Palmdale, California as of 2021 as Stephanie Ann Epperson.
Rosemary Forsyth – Lives in Beverly Hills, California as of 2021 as Rosemary Forsyth Yuro. Still returning fan mail in 2017.

Beverly Washburn – Still acting and returning fan mail in 2020. Lives in Henderson, Nevada.

Lynn O'Leary-Jameson – Living in Sisters, Oregon in 2019 according to StarTiger but I can't trace her myself. Appeared at an It's a Wonderful Life reunion in 2016.

Ross Bickell – Lives in The Bronx, New York as of 2021.
Monie Ellis – Lived in Van Nuys, California in 2013 but it would appear that she's moved since and I can't trace her. Daughter of actress Mona Freeman (1926–2014).

Kevin Tate – Died 30 Sep 1999 (aged 44) in California according to the Social Security Index. Middle name was Marshall and the DOB is an exact match to the one widely used on the net. Also a resident of Phoenix, Arizona according to an obit on Newspapers.com.
Larry Domasin – Lives in Los Angeles, California as of 2021.
Robin Eccles – Now a professional makeup artist with some screen credits up to 2015. Lives in Siddell, Louisiana according to her LinkedIn. Residency records list both Siddell and Los Angeles, California as home and give her current name as Robin Gloyner Eccles.
Gary Grimes – Lives in Redondo Beach, California as of 2021. Middle name not listed on IMDb is William.
Nanomba Hargrave/Morton – Lives in New Mexico as of 2018 as per her sister's obituary here, and specifically Albuquerque as of 2021 as per the residency records.

Kim Williams – Later became a TV producer. Credits as recent as 2018.
Kathleen McOsker – AKA simply "Kathy". Lives in Baldwin, New York as of 2021 as Kathleen J. Taravella.
Anthony Battaglia – I share your doubts on this one. Checked Ancestry Family Trees and Newspapers.com and can't find any mention of this individual being an actor. The DOB/DOD matches IMDb in every case, however it's possible IMDb have put 2+2 together and got 5. Anthony Battaglia is a very common name, so there's no hope in me finding the truth through the records. Maybe worth contacting IMDb and asking them what their source was for this @Octopus of Odstock.
Elizabeth Cheshire – As of 2019, still returning fan mail. Lives in Burbank, California as of 2021.
Kamee Aliessa Merrill – Lives in El Dorado Hills, California as of 2021.
Robert Jayne – Lives in Pasadena, California as of 2021. Still active but last acting credit was in 2015.
Jackie Russell – Not sure, can't trace her despite me having her father's birth name/dates from IMDb. Still living I imagine. Maybe born c. 1936 if she graduated from high school in 1954?

@Ulitzer95 @Octopus of Odstock to the best of my knowledge, Roy Evans is still around (and was well in 2017 aged 87) but prefers to shun publicity and keep to a quiet retirement like many other elderly actors. (The best living example being Colin Jeavons, who counted his savings after House of Cards in the early 90s and decided he'd prefer to relax for the next 30 years, and more power to him!) 

 

Roy is known personally to some of the bigger fans in TV production/writing still so I think we'd know fairly quickly if he died.

Although I have just learned that Colin Jeavons family have turned down requests for interviews/fan stuff in the past decade "due to his health". 

 

That said, just found a photo of him from January and he's looking good for 91!

As we are on British TV actors, forgive me but does anybody know how Peter Tilbury (born 1945) is doing? He created the sitcoms Shelley and It Takes a Worried Man, the latter of which he starred in. He was a great talent, and continued to write and act but hasn’t done anything since a few writing credits in 2007. I don’t think I’ve found a photograph of him from this century. I am a fan and I just wonder what happened to him?

Hmm... nothing on Twitter, nothing on the autograph hunter sites at all. On FB there is a profile that may be him but no recent pics and the person last posted in 2015.

 

IMDb and Wiki both say born Oct 1945 in Redruth, Cornwall. There’s nobody by the surname Tilbury born in Cornwall during the period 1940–50. Either IMDb/Wiki are wrong or he was born under a different name, which would mean he’ll be much more difficult to trace.

 

Not really much use I’m afraid, sorry.

Wonderful stuff! This is such brilliant sleuthing. It's the knowing they are definitely alive which makes a big difference as well as those definitely dead. 

I'm not expecting many to have died, but if I don't ask, I don't get.

@Octopus of Odstock, I have less than 40 names left to do for the Jimmy Stewart co-stars. I've covered everyone 75+ so far.

Before I continue... where did the YOB for David Kent come from? If you have a full date I could track him.

And as for Battaglia, what contradicting info is it you have before I disappear down a rabbit hole? And where did your 1967 YOB come from? 
There's a family tree on Ancestry, and it matches the DOB (22/9/65) and DOD as listed on IMDb but it doesn't have photos or mention he was an actor. 
Anthony Battaglia isn't an uncommon birth name in the U.S. and there are two other NY residents – a 29 Jul 1964 birth and 17 Feb 1967 birth which could be him I suppose. The latter died in 2019 btw.

@Ulitzer95. David Kent, I remember working out years ago. I read in one of Jimmy's filmography books that it described Kent as 'years old' and gave a little background. IIRC, it was in the Californian birth Index. 

Battaglia was the same book. Said he was 10 years old when he did Airport 77. Its just none of the obituaries or news reports mention he was an actor. Not one. I find it hard to believe that wouldnt be picked up on.

@Octopus of Odstock Now finished all the Jimmy Stewart co-stars. Interestingly, one more death uncovered. Though it assumes that the DOB on IMDb is correct ofc. Probably true as nothing heard of Tate in years and doesn't appear to be in the residency records.

Let me know your thoughts on the rest.

I did wonder whether to give you the younger names. I'm glad I did. Sad news (albeit he's been dead 22 years) as it's always sad to see the younger actors die. 

I hugely appreciate this and it's also helped me appreciate some of the names on there that didn't mean as much to me but now I know they're more significant.

@Octopus of Odstock

Made a start on the footballers (covered names down to 1922). Just one find thus far:

David Lindsay
Hugman's / Wiki says born 29 Jun 1922 in Cambuslang, Lanarkshire, Scotland

Several family trees on Ancestry, including this one here say born 29 Jun 1919 in Cambuslang, Lanarkshire, Scotland.
Other info given...
Parents: John Lindsay and Martha McLachlan
Married: Barbara Hunter Forrester on 1 Feb 1947 in Innerleithen, Peebleshire, Scotland
Notes that he worked as a professional footballer in 1947!
Later worked as a sales engineer
Died: 10 Apr 1987 (aged 67) in East Kilbride, Lanarkshire, Scotland. Address at time of death was 99 Burns Park, East Kilbride.
Cause of death: myocardial infarction, renal failure, complications of surgery

Looking at Scotland's People for verification....
There is a David Lindsay born in Cambuslang in 1919, and another born there in 1922. The one who died in East Kilbride in 1987 was aged 67 at the time, so the Family Tree on Ancestry is certainly consistent if nothing else. To prove beyond doubt that it is correct though, you'd likely have to place an order for one, if not several of the certificates above. The 1947 marriage certificate I imagine would list his profession as a footballer, along with giving you his correct age!

---
Nothing on the others really. Some POSSIBLE leads:

Jim Smith 1/1/1920 Bolton, EN
There is a James Stanley Smith born Bolton, EN on 1/3/1920 who died in Bolton, EN c. Apr 1981. 
Could be him if 1/1/1920 is a mistake of 1/3/1920. You'd have to dig deeper and may be a complete waste of time as there were lots of people called James Smith born in Bolton around this period.

Mike Kelly 30/11/1920 Dublin, IR
There is a Michael Kelly born 1920 in Dublin who died in 1950 in Dublin, listed in family trees. No dates given but could be our guy. Wouldn't know where to start with the Irish records. I don't think they're readily available.

Eric Hampson 11/11/1921 Hanley, Staffs, EN
Not sure of his fate but was able to get full birth details as per the records. Above info definitely correct. His parents were Edwin and Eunice Hampson. Worth noting them in case any leads appear in the future. My hunch is on emigrated then died, or at a push... still alive?

@Octopus of Odstock, a rather bland family tree here has this:

David D. Gray
b. 1923 Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland
d. 1983 Halifax, Yorkshire, England

There's a comment bubble at the side which says "josie66mod Football: David Gray famously played for Bradford City FC in the 1950's."

No other info provided but most likely accurate.
Here's the problem in verifying it – the GRO Index doesn't have the 1983 records (d'oh!). It starts from 1984... and on FreeBMD, this record doesn't come up either, but that's likely because FreeBMD has incomplete records for the years missing on the GRO. In order to get the full date for Hugman's, they'd be best getting in touch with the registry office responsible for Halifax and request a copy of a certificate. That should hold a middle name, possibly a birth date/place, and will give a full date of death.

@Octopus of Odstock

Another one here.

Frederick A. Sharpe
b. Jan 1924 Norwich, Norfolk, England
m. Emily M. Watts in Apr 1944 Hull, Yorkshire, England
d. 2020 Hull, Yorkshire, England (aged 95–96)

This time, no mention of being a footballer in the family tree, but likely our guy. Worth contacting Wrexham F.C.? Surely they would have heard something?

This could be verified by the GRO (as his middle name will appear there) when they finally bother to put all the 2020 records up! When that will be, I don't know. I last asked them 6 months ago and they said they didn't know when they'd be live!

OR... there's the Probates. Now there is a record in there for 2020 for a Frederick Arthur Sharpe, but some reason the probate itself was registered in Liverpool. It has a date of death of 9 Apr 2020. I'm not sure if the probate would hold the age or DOB? But if Hugman's wanted to, they could call the GRO and try and place an order of a 2020 death certificate by phone. I think you can do that even though they're not online at the moment?

@Octopus of Odstock last one from me tonight.

This one is a lead... a bit of a wildcard but definitely merits exploring.

On Ancestry Family Trees, there's this:

Jack Taylor
b. 24 Jun 1924 Bradford, Yorkshire, England
d. 6 Feb 1997 Montreal, Quebec, Canada (aged 72)

Now, this is the only c. 1924 Taylor birth in Bradford I could find in the trees section that was either an exact or approx match. Problem though – Jack, not John. Now on the face of things, this would look like we've nailed him down, but I checked the birth index and the above individual was actually born in 1924 as "Jack Taylor" (rare for those days as Jack was almost always exclusively a nickname, not a birth name). Still worth considering though – did his name get bastardised down the line in League records, books etc somewhere? I can't find any old newspaper clippings about the 46-47 Bradford City team that mentions a Taylor. Is it possible someone put 2 and 2 together and got 5 i.e. saw "Jack" and just assumed he was actually "John"?

Now, here's a photo of him (poor quality, sorry) after he emigrated to Canada. If you could pull out an old Bradford City pic of that specific team (again, easier said than done) then you may be able to rule this lead out or verify it that way. I imagine pictures of these guys are pretty scarce?

@Ulitzer95, this is wonderful, thank you. I'll do some enquiries my end first and let you know.

The clubs tend to be pretty dire with these things. 

Last I heard, 2020s details are coming out before end of May. 'springtime' was the result of the last query. 

Ill be straight on GRO 2020 as soon as possible

Also,  Bonnie Belle Barber is now Bonni DeLong, living in Oregon.

 

With regard to Irish records, they are indeed available and open to the public up to certain years (births to 1921, deaths to the 1960s) via https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/. Probate records don't contain an age or DOB usually but if you can find the correct family members for the person you're searching for (or an address), these can be helpful to see who is listed in the wills.
