With a last name of "Guckeyson," I figured I must be related to Capt. John Guckeyson. My father was Elmer Guckeyson and I can't recall any of his brothers being
shot down during WWII. His father was also John Guckeyson, but he died of natural causes. Would you be able to help me find out who his parents were and maybe how we are related?
Thank you -- Nancy
