Jerome Andrew Blackmon


Recommended Posts

Jerome Andrew Blackmon, ex-Marine, arrested with David Ferrie on morals charges, participated in the Houma AFB bunker raid (Aug. '61), and described as "5'11-6' tall, dark black, wavy hair, and "obsessed with firing a rifle that he had in his possession the whole time at Ferrie's house and he was constantly pulling the bolt on this weapon, he was dressed in a Marine fatiques uniform, and gave the impression he was just released from the service."

There's also a Mrs. Blackmon, a friend of Ruby who nobody bothered to look into.

Are there any photos, mug shots of Blackmon?

What became of him?

Is there any more information about this guy, at all?

Jerome Andrew Blackmon aka Andrew Jerome Blackmon. Also with him and Ferrie when Ferrie was busted on morals charges were Layton Martens and Melvin Seeling.

Melvin Seeling, at some stage, worked as a Control Tower Operator in Corpus Christi. For what it's worth, this was the same occupation as Heming and Roy Hargreaves were listed as having at various times.

Seeling (FNU) is in the HSCA mug shots. Seeling (FNU) was identified by James Richards as being in one of the Quebec to Gitmo peace walk pics, though James qualified at the time, he thought the marcher's first name was Tom.

Can't find any pics of Blackmon. There are several people with that surname in the records.

I can think of a good reason why; the following RIF 179-20002-10265 is listed as postponed in full

NARA Has 5 documents on Blackmon under simple search last name only Blackmon.

Other names listed in subject file in those five documents are

RABEL, LOUIS,

DALZELL, WILLIAM,

NOVEL, GORDON DWANE

FERRIE, DAVID

MARTENS, LAYTON;

SEELING, MELVIN

Although there may be exceptions, anytime you see a JFK Assassination document with the 179 RIF Prefix, it is generally a very important file, I have a lot of ONI related documents on my to do list and a great deal of them are with this same prefix, my guess is that many of the remaining classified documents carry this RIF prefix as well.

To obtain more information regarding this area, go to NARA and look at the various ARRB file headings, of which Russ Holmes is just one of many. For example Joan Zimmerman
