Hello. My name is Linda and I am an ex- Warrington-ite. I lived with my family in Warrington in the Navy enlisted men's barracks from 1952-1959. I am a near graduate of Warrington Elementary School (which I just loved!)! I adored Florida, especially Pensacola and Fort Walton Beach. Sadly, in September, 1959, my parents, my sister and I were in a car accident. My parents died and my sister and I critically injured. We survived but were quickly adopted out to relatives in Wisconsin. I have been trying, ever since, without success, to find the article and obituary of my parents and the accident that was in one of the area newspapers. Can anyone help me? I have not been able to locate the newspaper or the articles. I hope some day to return and visit the towns of my childhood, even maybe go down Route 66 (if it's still open) to St. Augustine to the Florida Keys. I lived at 552 Moreno Court. Are those barracks still there? I doubt it, as they were substandard in the 50's. What about the school? IF anyone can help me, I'd be very grateful. Linda McCargar (Alvarez)

You say you were adopted out to relatives. Don't they have the obituary? What were your parents names? What exact date was the accident? Have you tried contacting the local newspaper there? Some newspapers will do a search and look up articles for you, sometimes for a fee, sometimes for free? Have you tried contacting the library there? Again, some will search the microfilm for you, especially if you have a date and names, some won't, some will for a fee, and some will for free. What have you tried to do in your search and what have you found out? If you provide additional information and try the avenues listed in this post, you may have more luck.

Contact the Pensacola newspaper and ask for their library or archivist.

Here's the number: (850) 435-8600

You can visit the school on Classmates http://www.classmates.com/community/school/list?communityId=17187711 (broken link) They have 133 members on the list so maybe you will find an old classmate.
