Appeal For Information

Winecoff.org is seeking to locate family or friends of two soldiers from Ft. Bragg, N.C., whose names appear on the December 7, 1946 Winecoff Hotel guest list above.

Capt. William C. Wilford and Lt. Frank Johnson were both registered in room 1128 at the time of the fire. Though that area of the hotel was heavily burned, neither soldier was listed among the dead or injured. More than 95 percent of all other guests were accounted for during The Winecoff Fire book research.

If you can help us learn more about Winecoff Hotel guests William C. Wilford or Frank Johnson, please contact allenbgoodwin@yahoo.com

In it she examines their high school yearbooks, the lives they led, their final night and the fire's dramatic impact on the Middle Georgia town. Click here.
