To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Records and information on Hubert Afton "Buck" Ferrell. Mr. Ferrell passed away on or about Jan. 24, 1998 in Dallas, TX. I have been unable to locate an obituary for Mr. Ferrell. I am including a copy of the probate record for his estate from the Dallas County probate office.

Mr. Ferrell was the husband of Mary Elizabeth McHughes Ferrell, known as Mary Ferrell. Mrs. Ferrell passed away in 2004. This is a link to her obituary in The Dallas Morning News, http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/dallasmorningnews/obituary.aspx?n=mary-elizabeth-mchughes-ferrell&pid=1958846

Mr. Ferrell's Social Security number was 412-03-4147.

I request any "cross-referenced" records mentioning Mr. Ferrell.

I also request a search of “ELSUR” (Electronic Surveillance) records that mention Mr. Ferrell.

I would like all of these searches done for any aliases or former names that Mr. Ferrell might have used. I believe he commonly went by the name of "Buck" Ferrell.

Mary Ferrell was a well-known researcher into the assassination of President Kennedy and other events. I write a blog, jfkresearch.me, about the assassination.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, and is not being made for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

John Kirsch

I appeal the FBI's "no responsive documents" response to my FOIA request for information/records on Hubert Afton "Buck" Ferrell. The FBI letter dated 3/15/2015 does not indicate that the FBI followed the criteria I laid out in my request. In my request I asked the FBI to search for any "cross-referenced" records mentioning Mr. Ferrell. I also asked the FBI to search “ELSUR” (Electronic Surveillance) records that mention Mr. Ferrell and to search for any aliases or former names Mr. Ferrell might have used. John Kirsch
