Surnames: Lilly, Buckley
How do I find the name of past employees of the Disney Corporation? I have been told my Dad's cousin worked there sometime in the 30s, 40s, 50s and perhaps beyond. His name was Vernon Lilly (b. after 1915 in Toronto, Ont., Canada; parents: George Eleanor Lilly. Note: Eleanor's maiden name was Buckley).

Thanks for your help with this.

Do you know if he moved to California on his own or did his family come with him? Did he stay in the United States the rest of his life?

I don't think he had a wife or kids. My dad said his cousin was gay. Also, his parents remained in Toronto, so he would have moved down there on his own. Did he stay in the U.S.? I would assume so, since I don't have any record of him in Canada.

Thanks again.
