Note on Husband: Frances MARION - shared note

This is pure suposition based on conversations with Maureen Elizabeth Yelland.

The theroy is to find a US Navel vessel that was in the UK or better still in Liverpool that went down during after March 1944. (Lavinia was born 12 Dec 1944). The only clue I have at the moment is that Francis was some sort of Medic.

Dear Mr. Arthur:


Thank you for your inquiry. There are a number of sites that you may find useful in your search.The first place I would start is the National Archives and Records Administration, (NARA), Linked to from the NARA website is From what I read here it appears there is microfilm of Naval casualties from WWII.


You may also want to look at, or Both these sites offer a vast amount of information on available resources. You may be able to find help at this site
