Marilyn Mckinney I heard a lot of stories when I was a mere child. About the late flying Ace Capt. Eddie Vernon Rickenbacker, about Annapolis, the Naval Academy and about how my father saved his buddy by pulling him out of their burning plane just before it blew up somewhere in France while flying for the Navy during WW1.

My dad was born Dec. 30, 1896 in Dade County Florida. His entire family, I was told, was wiped out during the influenza epidemic in 1918 except for one sister. My daughter who is helping me research our family genealogy just doesn't accept that as being true. Especially since larger families were had in those times.

When I was older and my mother was still alive I told her I was going to search his family roots. I was told to leave it alone. Now at 63 years of age I feel I need to have some answers about the Vernon family. Especially for my son and my daughter. I now have some serious health issues the doctors would like some background on and I can't tell them anything about his medical background. I can't believe that I don't have any relatives out there I am desperate to find a link to my ancestry.
