THANKS. His paternal grandmother was Emily Jane Winters ­ paternal
grandfather (not sure of at this point).

George¹s father, Hilton Darren Blenkhorn was born 14 Mar 1914; Emily Jane
Winters m/3 Edward E. Foote on 4 Oct 1913. Yet, Hilton Darren is a Blenkhorn
and not a Foote.

Was Emily Jane 3 months pregnant with Hilton by someone else when she
married Edward E. Foote?
