      I don’t know if u have or have not found out anything about Jerry yet, but I am best friends with the mother of Keith Clayborne’s only child and she may be friends with a family member of Jerry’s. I am not at all sure if there is any relation or kin, but her name is Terri (Trumbo) Mahaney, now I have heard that Jerry is kin to the Trumbo’s, if not i’m sorry I tried, but if it works I am happy for u. Good luck with your search. HMJ
