Mercer Wilson Avent

Hello, I am Traci Thompson, Local History and Genealogy Librarian at Braswell Memorial Library in Rocky Mount, NC. I am trying to locate a picture of Mercer Wilson Avent, who went to Benvenue High School late 30s or early 40s. Mr. Avent died in 1944 when the WWII plane he was piloting crashed in England. A memorial is being planned for the crash site, and I have been contacted by a man in England involved with this endeavor who is seeking pictures and information on Mr. Avent. I have been trying to find someone who might have a yearbook from that era (we only have Rocky Mount High School here).

If you have a yearbook in the right time period or know someone who might, please contact me at: 252-442-1951 ext. 247 or or

Thank you!
