Posted: 4 Oct 2000 7:42AM GMT you have your Father's SS#? You need it before you write for his Military Records from the Army. I am in a similar situation with my Father's info. He was also from St Louis and was in the Army, so I have the address where you can write to get his records sent to you:
National Personnel Records Center
Military Personnel Records
9700 Page Avenue
St Louis, Mo 63132-5100
You need to include the following info about him in your request:
Name when in Service:
Social Security #:
Date of Service:
Date and Place of Birth: can call the Army at a Message # and request Form SF180 and it will be mailed to you to fill them at (314)538-4261

I just recently became interested in genealogy, but I have the Family Tree Maker files compiled by my father. Fairy Castle was my great-grandmother. With her husband Peter Paul Bissom, she had 4 children: Max, Ralph, Leo Richard and Rose May.

I may not have access to the internet except for email soon. If you would like more info, email me. I am certainly interested in any information you may have.

I have a Leo Vezeau son of Peter Paul and Fairy Castle Vezeau. Peter Paul is the son of Antoine Vezeau and Philomena Evans. In the 1920 Census of Maplewood, Missouri, Peter Paul and his children, including Leo, were living with my great grandparents, Rudolph and Rosalie (Vezeau) Pfountz.
