My grandfather was John B. Vernon of El Bethel. His father was John M. Vernon and his father was Noah Vernon.The only descendant of John B. Vernon other than myself is my Aunt Lois Vernon Blevins, his daughter.
John B. Vernon had four children: Floyd who died at age 2, Pauline (my mother) deceased. Howard no deceased and Lois age 91.
If any of this rings a bell please let me know.
I know there is another line of Vernons around/near Marengo; including an Elwood Vernon and Kenneth Vernon both deceased.
