Murray Men in World War II



This project only succeeded because of the dedication and determined efforts of about a hundred individuals who assisted the museum's endeavor to collect and record history that should have been saved in the 1940s and 50s.

Although the monument on the courthouse lawn contains a listing of Murray County's war dead, including the names of those who made the supreme sacrifice in World War II, it appears that nobody bothered to collect and record the faces and facts belonging with those names.

About a dozen people interested in local history recently joined together, working to identify people who might know details about these dead men. We continue searching for reliable information about Ben Moore, Jr.

The following assisted greatly in the research effort: Pat Ausmus; Anne Brindle; Emily Cogburn; Diane Davis; "Miss Mary" Dill; Robert Green; Tim Howard; William Leonard; Carolyn Luffman; Bobby Mosteller; and Marcelle White. Robert Green found graves for several of the dead soldiers, a surprising number have tombstones in Murray County. Bobby Mosteller enlisted the help of his coffee buddies. Herman McDaniel did much of the online research and assembled the materials collected to create this new section of the museum.

These people consulted more than 50 others that they thought might have helpful information or be able to point them to others who might know. Thankfully, all of the folks contacted by this group answered our questions, provided information, pointed us to other possible sources–who often were family members, gave us information from family histories, pointed us to grave sites, and, in a few cases, shared family pictures of their dead soldier. The pictures will be added to this section shortly.

Together we have assembled both family and military information about these men who died while serving in World War II. Because this is being preserved in an on-line museum rather than printed in a book, the information can be modified as needed–correcting errors or adding new information and pictures. This section of the museum will continue to evolve.

Special thanks to all who have assisted in this effort!

World War II A Brief Overview

World War II began in Europe in 1939 and in Asia in 1937. This war involved most of the countries of the world and resulted in major changes for all.

Prior to this conflict many European countries held colonies around the world. England, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, and others claimed ownership of colonial possessions.

The fighting in Europe started when Germany invaded Poland September 1, 1939. Within months the German army had gained control of most of continental Europe. The United States did not enter the war in Europe until December 1941, after the Japanese bombed the American Navy at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The U. S. immediately declared war on both Japan and Germany.

Our government put America's total resources and capabilities behind the war effort. Most factories ceased normal production and turned to producing things needed for the war. Auto manufacturers ceased production of cars and trucks and started to make war vehicles. Since most of the manufacturing capabilities in Europe had been destroyed or taken over by Germany, European forces had to turn to the United States for nearly all of their war vehicles. The U. S. Government started to ration consumer items such as gas, oil, tires, shoe, coffee, sugar, and meat; these were rationed throughout the war years.

The fighting occurred across Europe, North Africa, the South Pacific, and much of Asia.

More than 100 million military personnel were mobilized for the war.

Major countries fighting with the United States included Great Britain, China, France, Canada, New Zealand, and Brazil. Some of the countries that had been overrun by the Germans very early in the war had national armies in exile fighting with the American allies. The Netherlands, Belgium, and Poland were among these. These countries reported more than 16 million military deaths. The estimate of their civilian deaths was put at more than 45 million; this figure includes those killed by Germany in the Holocaust.

The war in Europe turned in favor of the American allies in 1944 when the Allies invaded France and began to retake the continent. The Soviet Union invaded Europe from the East and the two forces eventually met in Berlin. Germany unconditionally surrendered May 8, 1945.

Major countries allied with Germany and Japan included Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, and Romania. The German-Japan group reported more than 8 million military deaths. They experienced an estimated 4 million civilian death, including those who died when American forces dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The Japanese, soon after the second atomic bomb was dropped, surrendered August 15, 1945.

TINIAN ISLAND, A TINY AIRSTRIP THAT WAS CRUCIAL TO WINNING THE WAR IN THE PACIFIC

NOTE: The museum extends special thanks to Marine Corps Captain Tommy Neuman for permission to use this article. Tommy enlisted in 1964, completed boot camp at Parris Island, SC, then Officer's Training at Quantico, VA. He served with 3rd Force Recon until he was wounded and medically retired. He currently is involved with numerous military groups in Virginia. Along the way he became Dr. Tommy Neuman and now lives at Warsaw, Virginia. Thank You, Sir.

WWII


TINIAN IS A SMALL ISLAND, less than 40 square miles, a flat green dot in the vastness of Pacific blue.

WWII


Fly over it and you notice a slash across its north end of uninhabited bush, a long thin line that looks like an overgrown dirt runway. If you didn't know what it was, you wouldn't give it a second glance out your airplane window.

WWII


On the ground, you see the runway isn't dirt but tarmac and crushed limestone, abandoned with weeds sticking out of it. Yet this is arguably the most historical airstrip on earth. This is where World War II was won. This is Runway Able:

WWII


On July 24, 1944, 30,000 US Marines landed on the beaches of Tinian .... Eight days later, over 8,000 of the 8,800 Japanese soldiers on the island were dead (vs. 328 Marines), and four months later the Seabees had built the busiest airfield of WWII - dubbed North Field - enabling B-29 Superfortresses to launch air attacks on the Philippines, Okinawa, and mainland Japan.

Late in the afternoon of August 5, 1945, a B-29 was maneuvered over a bomb loading pit, then after lengthy preparations, taxied to the east end of North Field's main runway, Runway Able, and at 2:45am in the early morning darkness of August 6, took off.

The B-29 was piloted by Col. Paul Tibbets of the US Army Air Force, who had named the plane after his mother, Enola Gay. The crew named the bomb they were carrying Little Boy. 6 hours later at 8:15am Japan time, the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima ..

Three days later, in the pre-dawn hours of August 9, a B-29 named Bockscar (a pun on "boxcar" after its flight commander Capt. Fred Bock), piloted by Major Charles Sweeney took off from Runway Able. Finding its primary target of Kokura obscured by clouds, Sweeney proceeded to the secondary target of Nagasaki, over which, at 11:01am, bombardier Kermit Beahan released the atomic bomb dubbed Fat Man.

Here is "Atomic Bomb Pit #1" where Little Boy was loaded onto Enola Gay:

WWII


WWII


And here on the other side of ramp is "Atomic Bomb Pit #2" where Fat Man was loaded onto Bockscar.

WWII


WWII


The commemorative plaque records that 16 hours after the nuking of Nagasaki, "On August 10, 1945 at 0300, the Japanese Emperor without his cabinet's consent decided to end the Pacific War."

Take a good look at these pictures, folks. This is where World War II ended with total victory of America over Japan. I was there all alone. There were no other visitors and no one lives anywhere near for miles. Visiting the Bomb Pits, walking along deserted Runway Able in solitude, was a moment of extraordinarily powerful solemnity.

It was a moment of deep reflection. Most people, when they think of Hiroshima and Nagasaki , reflect on the numbers of lives killed in the nuclear blasts - at least 70,000 and 50,000 respectively. Being here caused me to reflect on the number of lives saved - how many more Japanese and Americans would have died in a continuation of the war had the nukes not been dropped.

Yet that was not all. It's not just that the nukes obviated the US invasion of Japan, Operation Downfall, that would have caused upwards of a million American and Japanese deaths or more. It's that nuking Hiroshima and Nagasaki were of extraordinary humanitarian benefit to the nation and people of Japan.

Let's go to this cliff on the nearby island of Saipan to learn why:

Saipan is less than a mile north of Tinian .... The month before the Marines took Tinian, on June 15, 1944, 71,000 Marines landed on Saipan ..... They faced 31,000 Japanese soldiers determined not to surrender.

Japan had colonized Saipan after World War I and turned the island into a giant sugar cane plantation. By the time of the Marine invasion, in addition to the 31,000 entrenched soldiers, some 25,000 Japanese settlers were living on Saipan, plus thousands more Okinawans, Koreans, and native islanders brutalized as slaves to cut the sugar cane.

There were also one or two thousand Korean "comfort women" (kanji in Japanese), abducted young women from Japan's colony of Korea to service the Japanese soldiers as sex slaves. (See The Comfort Women: Japan 's Brutal Regime of Enforced Prostitution in the Second World War, by George Hicks.)

Within a week of their landing, the Marines set up a civilian prisoner encampment that quickly attracted a couple thousand Japanese and others wanting US food and protection. When word of this reached Emperor Hirohito - who contrary to the myth was in full charge of the war - he became alarmed that radio interviews of the well-treated prisoners broadcast to Japan would subvert his people's will to fight.

As meticulously documented by historian Herbert Bix in Hirohito and the Making of Modern Japan, the Emperor issued an order for all Japanese civilians on Saipan to commit suicide. The order included the promise that, although the civilians were of low caste, their suicide would grant them a status in heaven equal to those honored soldiers who died in combat for their Emperor.

And that is why the precipice in the picture above is known as Suicide Cliff, off which over 20,000 Japanese civilians jumped to their deaths to comply with their fascist emperor's desire - mothers flinging their babies off the cliff first or in their arms as they jumped.

Anyone reluctant or refused, such as the Okinawan or Korean slaves, were shoved off at gunpoint by the Jap soldiers. Then the soldiers themselves proceeded to hurl themselves into the ocean to drown off a sea cliff afterwards called Banzai Cliff. Of the 31,000 Japanese soldiers on Saipan, the Marines killed 25,000, 5,000 jumped off Banzai Cliff, and only the remaining thousand were taken prisoner.

The extent of this demented fanaticism is very hard for any civilized mind to fathom - especially when it is devoted not to anything noble but barbarian evil instead. The vast brutalities inflicted by the Japanese on their conquered and colonized peoples of China, Korea, the Philippines, and throughout their "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" was a hideously depraved horror.

And they were willing to fight to the death to defend it. So they had to be nuked. The only way to put an end to the Japanese barbarian horror was unimaginably colossal destruction against which they had no defense whatever. Nuking Japan was not a matter of justice, revenge, or it getting what it deserved. It was the only way to end the Japanese dementia.

And it worked - for the Japanese. They stopped being barbarians and started being civilized. They achieved more prosperity - and peace - than they ever knew, or could have achieved had they continued fighting and not been nuked. The shock of getting nuked is responsible.

We achieved this because we were determined to achieve victory. Victory without apologies. Despite perennial liberal demands we do so, America and its government has never apologized for nuking Japan ... Hopefully, America never will.

Murray Men Who Died While Serving In World War II

George Luther Akins was born in 1924 to George L. Akins and M. Ola Akins. Family and friends called the soldier Luther. Siblings included Aileen, Louise, and John H. Akins, all in the 1930 Census, showing the family then lived in Shuck Pen District of Murray County.

His enlistment form indicates that he enlisted from Murray County, Georgia, had attended one year of high school and worked as a general farm hand. He enlisted as a Private, July 24, 1943 at Fort McPherson, Atlanta. He was unmarried. He attained the rank of Sergeant in the Army. Service Number: 34826014. Sergeant Akins died in Italy on December 14, 1944, as the result of mortar fire. A military marker in Chatsworth Heights Cemetery reads: George L. Akins, Jr., December 29, 1924, December 14, 1944, WW II. An adjacent marker for his mother is inscribed: Ola Akins Henderson, November 5, 1903, May 22, 1986. Next in the row is a military marker for his father: George L. Akins, October 13, 1896, June 8, 1966, WW I.

Luther's youngest brother, John Harlan Akins, provided additional information and submitted photos to the museum.

He reported that the family increased by three after the 1930 Census was taken. Charles Lamar Akins, Betty Faye Akins, and Clara Lynn Akins were siblings to Luther.

His enlistment form stated that Jim was 67 inches tall and weighed 132 pounds. It stated that he had attended two years of high school and worked as a general farm hand. His military service number was 34266812. At time of enlistment he was living in Murray. Pfc Bonds was serving with the 128th Field Artillery Battalion, 6th Armored Division, when he was killed March 5, 1945, in the Netherlands. He was buried there in Margraten Cemetery, Grave Number 2012.

The Chatsworth Times reported April 26, 1945, as follows: "Jim Bonds Killed in Germany. Pfc.

Winston Eugene Brown was born in 1918 to Calvin Alexander and Zeffie (Snyder) Brown, who lived on the Colvard Place in Little Murray. Family history indicates that he was named for his uncle Winston Eugene Brown. Both the 1920 and 1930 Census show the family living in Polk County, Tennessee. Siblings included Norris, Esta, Dorothy, Ruth, Mildred, and Virginia. The 1930 Census listed the name Hester M. Brown instead of Esta shown in 1920. The 1930 also listed Junior M. Brown, age 1.

The young Winston attended Oak Grove School. His military records indicate that he had completed 4 years of high school, but the school he attended is not known.

His enlistment form indicates that Winston was born in Tennessee but was living in Murray County, Georgia when he enlisted on January 28, 1942 at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. That form indicated that he was 68 inches tall and weighed 153 pounds. He had attended 4 years of high school. His Army serial number was 34186713. He was killed August 18, 1944, in an airplane crash. His body was returned and he was buried with full military honors at Boanerges Baptist Church Cemetery in Polk County, Tennessee.

The following pictures, provided by Betty Bryant Bandy, are of Winston E. Brown in uniform, and the honor guard at his funeral in Polk County, Tennessee.

A. J. Cagle was born in 1920 in Georgia. His name was Allen James Cagle. The Census for 1930 listed Jackson and Emma Cagle, living in Coosawattee, Murray County. Their family included Floyd Cagle, age 16; A. J. Cagle, age 9; and Harold Cagle, one month old. All of these had been born in Georgia. That Census listed five other Cagle families on the same page as the family of Jackson and Emma, meaning they all lived nearby. The Census indicated that every member of those six Cagle families had been born in Georgia. Apparently the Cagles had been settled in Georgia for decades. A. J., born in 1920, eventually married, fathered two boys, Jimmy and Ronnie. Ronnie never saw his father. His son A. J. Jr., ironically was the first Murray County man to die in the Vietnam War.

The father's Army enlistment record indicates that A. J. enlisted from Murray County, Georgia, had completed one year of high school and was married. He had worked as a farm hand. He enlisted as a Private on August 21, 1943, at Fort McPherson, Georgia. He had attained the rank of Sergeant when the Army notified his parents that he was missing in action. Six months later authorities notified the family that he had been killed in France, in action near the Rhine River. His official date of death was determined to be March 7, 1944. After the war the Army returned his body to America and his family buried him in Murray's New Prospect Cemetery.

Sidney L. Cantrell was born in 1919, in Georgia, to Sidney L. and Anemy (?) J. Cantrell. The 1930 Census listed two older brothers, Willie L., and Earl L. Cantrell. The family then was living in Crandall.

His enlistment form shows that he was living in Murray County at the time of his enlistment. The form indicated that he had completed grammar school, then worked as a semi-skilled woodworker. He enlisted as a Private at Fort McPherson, Atlanta, on September 25, 1943. Pvt. Cantrell was killed June 22, 1944 at Cherbourg, France. He was buried in grave E-4-10 at Saint Laurent Cemetery, Saint Laurent, France. His Army rank was Private when he died. His service number was 34828898. A grave marker was erected in Eton Cemetery, Eton, Georgia.

His death was reported in the August 3, 1944, issue of The Chatsworth Times: "Sidney Cantrell Killed in France. Pvt. Sidney L. Cantrell, 25, of Crandall, was killed in action on June 22 in France, the soldier's mother, Mrs. Annie Morrison Cantrell, of Crandall, has been notified. Having previously received a message that her son was wounded, Mrs. Cantrell received the news last Sunday night that he had been killed.

The soldier is also survived by two brother, Lee Cantrell, of Crandall, and Earl Cantrell, of Knoxville, Tenn., and one sister, Mrs. H. G. McPherson, of Knoxville, Tenn. Private Cantrell was with the infantry and had been stationed in England since last April."

Thanks to Robert Green for acquiring the following picture of Sidney Cantrell. Robert contacted Cathryn Cantrell Wilbanks and told her he wanted a picture of the deceased soldier for the museum. She told him that she had a framed picture of Sidney that had been hanging on a wall in her home since shortly after he died. She invited Robert to come to her home with his camera to take a picture of her prized photo. He did.

The following photograph of Sidney Cantrell's grave marker was obtained through teamwork involving Robert Green, Joy fRiggers, and Katie Lemerre. Thanks to all!

Willie A. Champion was born August 4, 1915, in Georgia. His parents were Charles and Alma Champion. The 1910 Census listed his parents in Worth County, Ga., as follows: Charlie, age 23; Alma, age 21; J. D., age 6 months. Family members report that Charlie died about 1918 or 1919, but do not recall the circumstances of his death.

The 1920 Census listed Alma, age 30; Mary L., age 12; Julia, age 7; Albert, age 5; and Carter, age 7 months. They were enumerated in the home of Alma's parents, Jessie and Sarah Hammontree, at Coosawattee, Gordon County, Georgia. Starling Hammontree, age 10, was also listed.

Alma married Jae B. McElrath between the Censuses. In 1930, the household listed Jae B. McElrath, age 42; Alma McElrath, age 41; John McElrath, age 4; Jewell McElrath, age 2; and Ola Mae McElrath, 2 months. Also living in that household in 1930 were Albert, age 14, and Carter Tate Champion, age 10, both listed as stepsons.

Jo Mae Smith, half sister to Albert, said that Albert did not get along well with his step-father, so he left home and went off somewhere, she thinks Louisiana, where he married a woman he called Abby. She knows nothing about Albert's wife and whether they had a family.

Albert's brother, Carter Champion, also served in the Army, in World War II. He was living in Polk County, Tennessee, with a wife (name unknown) when he enlisted.

So far as Albert's death, Jo Mae said that the family was told by the Army that he had been injured (no details), spent several months in a hospital, and recovered sufficiently that he was returned to duty. He then got pneumonia and died February 7, 1945, but family does not know where he died.

Eventually the Army returned his body and he was buried in Hopewell Baptist Cemetery, just off of Highway 411, approximately 1 mile north of Oakman.

Interestingly, both Murray and Gordon County listed this man as one of their dead soldiers of World War II. Yet neither had any public records detailing his life and death. After the museum had an article in the Chatsworth Times, Calhoun Times, and Dalton Citizen, headlined "Who Was Willie A. Champion?" with an accompanying photo of his grave marker, did someone come forward with helpful information regarding this man.

Special thanks are due to Jo Mae Smith, Albert's half-sister, and her granddaughter, Sherry Smith, for providing basic family details which enabled the museum to find relevant Census records for Willie Albert Champion's family.

They have also promised to provide pictures of the dead soldier to the museum soon.

Frank J. Davenport was born in 1921 in Murray County, Georgia. The 1930 Census listed his family living at Coosawattee, Gordon County, Georgia, as follows: John Davenport, age 46, Sellie Davenport, age 46, and Frank Davenport, age 9. His mother's name actually was Sallie. Grave markers at Fairview Cemetery, Gordon County, indicate that John R. Davenport lived from 1883 to 1960, and that Sallie N. Davenport lived from 1883 to 1976. The marker for Pvt. Frank J. Davenport contains the dates January 22, 1921 - September 19, 1944.

The Chatsworth Times, October 5, 1944, ran the following story: "Frank Davenport Killed in France. Pvt. Frank J. Davenport, husband of Mrs. Mary Chance Davenport, was killed in action in France on September 19, according to a telegram Mrs. Davenport received from the War Department on October 2.

Private Davenport, who had been in the regular army for five years, had been overseas for a year. He was 33 years old. A native of Gordon County, the soldier is survived by his wife and 20-month-old son, Ronald; his parents, Mr. And Mrs. J. R. Davenport, of Carters; two brothers Jewel Davenport of Knoxville, Tenn., and Herbert Davenport of Carters; and one sister, Dorothy Davenport of Spring Place."

Enoch Thomas Davis was the son of Virgil C. and Addie R. Davis. When the 1930 Census was taken, the family lived in the Tenth District of Murray County. The parents were listed as Virgil C. Davis, age 53, born in Georgia, and Addie R. Davis, age 47, born in Georgia. The only other person listed in the household was Enoch Davis, age 5, born in Georgia.

His enlistment record indicates that Enoch completed 4 years of high school, and had worked at general farming. (Note: he enlisted December 5, 1942. The list of graduates of Murray County High School for 1943, includes his name.) He was shown being single, being 65 inches tall, and weighing 127 pounds. He enlisted as a Private in the Army Air Corps at Camp Forrest, Tennessee, December 5, 1942. He died May 5, 1944, but details of his death were not found. A grave marker in Sumach Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery lists Enoch Thomas Davis, Cpl. US Air Corps, 14161823, born Oct. 19, 1924, died May 5, 1944. Son of V. C. and Addie (Ridley) Davis. Two nearby markers appear to be his parents. One lists V. C. Davis, 1887 -1959. The other has Addie J. Ridley, wife of V. C. Davis, 1882-1938.

The Chatsworth Times reported his death in the issue of May 11, 1944: "Cpl. E. T. Davis Killed at Camp. Cpl. Enoch T. Davis, age 18, died from an accidental gun shot wound received in line of duty at his camp near Savannah, on May 5. He is survived by his father, Virgil Davis, of Crandall; aunts, Mrs. Olla Petty and Mrs. Lillie Hannah, of Dalton, Mrs. Carrie Dunn and Mrs. Ruby Dixon, of Crandall; uncles, Bob Pulliam and Henry Ridley.

Funeral services were held from Fairy Valley Baptist Church Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock with Rev. Kirby Parks, Rev Edd Payne, Rev Charlie Plemmons and Rev. Raymond Arrowwood officiating. Pallbearers were Billy Patterson, Cage Plemmons, W. P. Rymer, Samuel Higdon, Bobbie Houghton, and Billy Hall. Burial was in Sumach Cemetery with Kenemer Brothers in charge."

Johnnie V. Davis was the son of Rev. and Mrs. Oscar Davis. He was born October 24, 1923. The family moved frequently, living sometimes in Murray County and other times in Whitfield. The Census of 1920 listed the family as Oscar E. Davis, age 37; Maude Davis, age 35; Venoy H. Davis, age 14; Clevy C. Davis, age 12; Ona Davis, age 8; Mattie J. Davis, age 5; Albert L. Davis, age 4: and Raymond Davis, age 1.

Maude died in 1929 and was buried in Murray County's Free Hope Cemetery. The 1930 Census listed the family as: E. O. Davis, age 46; Clevie C. Davis, age 23; Mattie Gene Davis, age 15; Albert Davis, age 14; Raymond Davis, age 11; Mabel Davis, age 9; Johnnie Davis, age 6; and Jefferson Davis, age 4.

Rev. Davis was pastoring Free Hope Baptist Church and living in the former Gladden home-place at Gladden Springs, when he died in 1934. Shortly after his death all of his offspring moved to Whitfield County.

Army enlistment records for Johnnie V. Davis, born in 1923, service number 14133903, show that he enlisted from Whitfield County. He entered service July 21, 1942 at Camp Forrest, Tennessee, as a private. He had completed two years of high school and was working in the textiles industry just prior to entering the service. The form indicates that he was single, with no dependents.

Johnnie's 5 brothers, Albert, Clevie, Jeff, Onnie, and Raymond also served during that war. Clevie was in the Navy and Jeff was a Marine. Others served in the Army.

Johnnie was killed in action in France, December 10, 1944. His commanding officer sent the family a letter stating that "Sgt. Johnnie" had served honorably and well as a member of his battalion for 22 months. He had been awarded a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star for meritorious service in combat. The commander told the family only that Johnnie had been buried in "northeastern France."

After the war the military exhumed Johnnie's body and returned it to his family. His brothers served as pall bearers, proudly carrying their brother's flag-draped coffin into Free Hope Baptist Church for a funeral service, then to Free Hope Cemetery for burial. His tombstone, a military marker, is inscribed: Johnnie V. Davis, Oct. 24, 1923, Dec. 10, 1944, WW II. Johnnie's mother and father had been buried in the same row.

Carlton McDaniel said that after Johnnie's father died in the early 1930s, the brothers had all moved to Whitfield County. When the war commenced Johnnie and his brother, Jeff, were living next door to the McDaniel family just off Highway 41, south of Dalton. Carlton remembered they were living with relatives, family name Beavers.

When he learned that the museum was seeking pictures of Murray men who had died while serving in World War II, Carlton remembered that the Atlanta Constitution had published a picture of Johnnie with several of his fellow soldiers and that his mother, Amie McDaniel, had kept that newspaper picture of her young neighbor. Amazingly, Carlton found that picture among his deceased mother's papers and sent it to the museum.

This picture appeared in the March 6, 1944, issue of the Atlanta Constitution, with this text: "Daltonite Wins ‘Breather.' Back for a rest from front-line action, Corporal Johnnie Davis (second from left), of Dalton, Ga., enjoys a well earned rest and a chat with his tank pals somewhere on the beachhead south of Rome. Johnnie's pals are, left to right, Private Walter McClain, Kingsport, Tenn.; Private Vincent Cusenowicz, New York; T-5 Frank Wynegan, Belt, Montana; and T-4 Fred Weissflog, Chicago."

He had completed grammar school and worked as a general farm hand. He enlisted as a Private at Fort McPherson, Atlanta, August 20, 1941. He was killed on July 24, 1944 but details of his death were not found. A grave marker in New Prospect Baptist Church Cemetery, Murray County, contains the following information: John S. Dixon, Pvt. Co. E, 3rd Regt., 90th Div. US Army, born May 14, 1914, died July 26, 1944.

Derrell O. Fuller was born February 14, 1922. Both his parents taught school at Ramhurst in the 1940s. His father's name was George but for now his mother's name is not known.

When originally discovered, the following information did not appear to relate to the dead soldier from Murray County, there was too much that suggested that it might, for it to be ignored. Derrell O. Fuller qualifies as an unusual name, so it seems highly unlikely that two men with that exact name died in World War II.

The only enlistment form found for the name Derrell O. Fuller describes a man born in Oklahoma who entered the military from Oklahoma. He was 66 inches tall and weighed 154 pounds. He had completed grammar school and worked in general farming. The 1930 Census for Caddo County, Oklahoma, lists a family headed by George A. Fuller, age 46, who had been born in Texas, and his wife, Adie M. Fuller, age 38, who had been born in Georgia. They had 9 children listed. There is a Caddo County monument listing the names of local sons who died in World War II, and one of those names is Derrell O. Fuller, same as the man from Murray County, Georgia.

Military records indicate that Derrell O. Fuller was killed April 17, 1945, but give no details of his death. Those records also indicate that Private First Class Derrell O. Fuller, service number 38275424, was buried in Saint Avold Cemetery, Saint Avold, France (Grave number B-24-32).

In Chatsworth Heights Cemetery, a double grave-marker honors Derrell O. Fuller, Feb. 14, 1922 - April 17, 1945, and Lena E. Fuller, 1924 - 1983. An adjacent grave lists: Derrell Oran Fuller, US Navy, 1944-1995.

The brief article published in The Chatsworth Times, March 10, 1945, provides confirmation that the Caddo County, Oklahoma man and the Murray County, Georgia man were the same individual. "The Rev. And Mrs. George Fuller, of Ramhurst, who had five sons in the armed service, have been notified that one of their sons, Pfc. Derrell O. Fuller, died of sounds received in Germany on April 17. Pvt. Fuller has been in the army since 1942, serving overseas with the 61st Armored Infantry Battalion for the past eight months. He was 23 years old, a member of the Hopewell Baptist Church at Doogan, and had been a war worker at Bainbridge, Conn., before enlisting.

Besides his parents, the soldier is survived by one sister, Mrs. Earl Baker, of California, and seven brothers, Pfc. Hoyt L. Fuller, of California; Staff Sgt. Dale D. Fuller, stationed in England; Nathan Fuller, S 2-3, on duty in the Pacific, Weylon Fuller, S 2-c, in training in Illinois; Otis O. Fuller, of Hugo, Okla., Almel N. Fuller, of California; Naaman W. Fuller, of California, and Glen Fuller, of Ramhurst." The names of survivors in this article match the names of the parents and children of the family found in 1930 Census in Caddo, Oklahoma.

James Adrian Hammontree was the son of Chester and Katherine Hammontree. He was born in 1923, their fifth child. The Census of 1930 listed the family as: H. Chester, age 38; Katherine M., age 41; Edith E., age 15; Ralph W., age 11; Frances M., age 10, William A., age 8; J. Adrian, age 6; and H. Chester Hammontree, age 1.

Family records indicate that the father was Homer Chester Hammontree, 1891 - 1962. He was born and died in Murray County. Homer's parents reportedly were William Leach Hammontree, 1868 - 1939, and Elizabeth Vaughn Hammontree, 1874 - 1949.

These records list the mother as Katherine Miranda Youngblood Hammontree, 1895 - 1973. She was called "Katie."

James enlisted as a Private in the Army Air Corps, at Camp Forrest, November 20, 1942. He indicated that he was married, had one year of high school, had worked as a sales clerk. His height was listed as 66 inches and his weight at 154 pounds. At the time of his death he held the rank of Sergeant. He was killed February 24, 1944, but no details of his death were found. A tombstone in Center Valley Cemetery lists: James A. Hammontree, Nov. 22, 1923 - Feb. 24, 1944. Sgt., 68th AAF Bomb Sq., WW II. His parents are adjacent: Chester 1891 - 1962 and Katie 1895-1973.

The Chatsworth Times ran two articles about this soldier. The first, in the issue of March 23, 1944, was "Hammontree is Missing. Sgt. James Adrian Hammontree, 20, son of Mr. and Mrs. Chester Hammontree, of Fashion, has been reported missing in action over Germany, his parents have been notified. The soldier was a waist gunner with the Air Corps."

In their issue of May 4, 1944, The Times reported: "Hammontree Killed in Action. Sergeant James A. Hammontree, previously reported missing, was killed in action in the European area on February 24, according to a telegram received Wednesday by the soldier's mother, Mrs. Chester Hammontree, of Fashion.

In addition to his parents, the soldier is survived by three brothers and two sisters. They are Sergeant William Hammontree, who is now overseas, Ralph and Chester Hammontree, Jr., Mrs. Earl Keith and Miss Edith Hammontree. Young Hammontree was 20 years old. He was inducted into the Army Air Corps on November 18, 1942. He was sent overseas in November, 1943, having only one furlough at home during his training period."

In March 2012 Robert G. Green sent the museum a package of documents from the National Archives relating to the downing of American Army Air Corps Bomber, model B24D, near Gotha, Germany, February 24, 1944. The materials included a Missing Air Crew Report that gave names, rank, crew position and service numbers for all ten aboard the bomber that day. Sgt. James A. Hammontree was Assistant Engineer, Gunner, Ball Turret.

Information that Green sent indicated that this particular mission of the 68th Squadron, 44th Bomb Group, 8th Air Force, was to bomb an aircraft manufacturing facility that made fighters for the Germans.

The bomber, with its crew of 10, after departing its base in England, had flown to Gotha and dropped its bombs at approximately 1320 hours. The pilot immediately began their return flight to England. An eye-witness reported: "Just after the target this aircraft was hit by prop wash and fell out of formation. E/A (enemy aircraft) concentrated their attacks on this A/C and it began to struggle. Six (6) chutes were seen to come out of the A/C before it was seen to explode at approximately 1328 hours." Other witnesses reported that most of the damage inflicted on the bomber had been to its left side.

Documents detail the fate of several of the crew members who bailed out of the bomber. One man's chute either failed to open or he did not pull the cord. One was captured by Germans on the ground and taken to hospital. Others were captured and held prisoner until late September 1944, when they were repatriated to the American military.

One of the survivors reported that Sgt. Hammontree had been wounded and was still in the plane when the wreckage hit the ground. He was buried the following day in Pferndorf/Rhon Cemetery, grave 204. Fellow crewman, Sgt. W. W. Haynes suffered the same fate and was buried in grave 205.

Museum Note: A later report, The United States Strategic Bombing Survey, Vol. 9, Gothaer Waggonfabrik, A.G., Gotha, Germany, devoted many pages to two bombing missions sent to this facility. Brief extracts follow:

The Gothaer Waggonfabrik, A.G. was located in the northeast part of the City of Gotha. ... The plant was very compact, having over 70 buildings in an 80 acre plot.

... The principal product of the aircraft division of this concern was the twin-engine fighter aircraft, ME-110. ... with a capacity of about 75 to 90 airplanes per month.

... Two attacks, both by the Eighth AF, took place.

A table in the report indicates that during the February 24, 1944, attack, 170 tons of HE bombs were dropped; 74 tons of IB bombs, and 180 tons of fragmentation also were used.

...The February raid generally destroyed the easterly half of the plant, where aircraft manufacture was centered.

... The loss of output from the February raid, due to destruction of finished aircraft, damage to production facilities, and disruption of the processes, equaled about six to seven weeks of production, or a loss to the German Air Forces of about 140 planes. Full recuperation took place in a little over two months due to energetic and prompt measures taken with regard to rerouting of work and construction and/or equipping of dispersed factories in the near vicinity.

Thanks to Paul Ross for finding and submitting these photos to the museum. The first one is of Sergeant Hammontree, followed by one of him with an unidentified buddy. The last one (taken at his funeral) is of his parents, Chester and Katherine Hammontree, of the Fashion Community.

William G. Hargis William G. Hargis This man's enlistment record indicates that he was born in 1919, in Florida, and entered the service while a resident of Murray County, Georgia. He enlisted with the rank of Aviation Cadet, Army Air Corps, at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, January 7, 1942. He had two years of college and had worked in the accounting field before enlisting. He was single. Height was 67 inches and weight was 160 pounds. He was assigned service number 14077947. Two Notes: Museum later discovered that his middle name was Granville, and that he was assigned a different service number, 0-792022, when he became an officer.

Both the 1920 and 1930 Census listed this family living in Lake County, Florida. 1930 recorded them as Benjamin F. Hargis, age 40, born in Tenn.; Beulah Hargis, age 42, born in Tenn.; Charles Hargis, age 15, born in Tenn.; Virginia Hargis, age 13, born in Tenn.; Will G. Hargis, age 10, born in Florida; June Hargis, age 4, born in Florida; and David Hargis, age 1, born in Florida.

The newspaper article reporting his death indicated that William G. Hargis held the rank of Captain. He was killed in action February 23, 1945, when his plane was shot down over Germany. He was buried in grave number A-35-21 at Ardennes American Cemetery & Memorial, Neuville-en-Condroz, Liege, Belgium.

The Chatsworth Times reported in their issue dated April 5, 1945, the following: "Capt. W. D. Hargis is Missing. Capt. William D. Hargis, of the Air Force, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ben F. Hargis, of Deland, Florida, formerly of Murray County, and the brother of Charles Hargis, of Crandall, has been reported missing over Germany since February 23, it has been learned here.

Capt. Hargis is a member of the famed "Pioneer Fighters" Bomber group of the Ninth Air Force which has the record of destroying 680 enemy aircraft in one year."

Thanks to Robert Green's tenacity, the museum now has a photo of Captain Bill Hargis. Robert contacted Charlotte Hansird Pritchett, a long-time resident of Crandall; she contacted Margaret Edmonston, a niece of Captain Hargis. Margaret's dad, Charles Hargis, had been a brother to Bill. Thanks to all.

Major new material added May 2012


A German man recently sent the Murray County Museum an eye-witness account of the downing of an American fighter plane piloted by Captain Bill Hargis who entered the service from Murray County, Georgia.

Alfred Buchholz, at that time 12 years old, knew that Allied planes came to this area daily in the final year of the war and that the German Army was constantly watching for them.

The Germans had positioned three flak guns near the small village of Weilmunster, near Koblenz, northwest of Wiesbaden. One of flak guns was concealed in a wooded area, the other was in a hole in an open field. The third gun was mounted on one of the train cars. German soldiers Alfred thought to have been 18-20 years old were positioned beside all three gun positions.

When, on the late afternoon of February 23, 1945, they heard the engines of two planes approaching, they made certain that the train's locomotive was spewing a very visible cloud of steam into the air to attract the pilot's attention. Alfred distinctly remembers that one of the young soldiers that he was talking with, pulled him into the hole where the gun was located. Alfred said that the American plane flew lower in order to get a closer look at the train. Before the pilot realized that he had flown into a trap, two of the flak guns fired. He said that the shots that doomed the airplane were fired from the flak mounted on the train.

Alfred Buchholz said that the plane was on fire, and when it crashed into the woods near Audenschmiede, some 4 kilometers away, he could clearly see the fireball created by the exploding fighter plane.

Naturally this young boy was eager to see the crashed plane, so he quickly rode his bicycle to the scene. He said that the plane had been completely destroyed and the pilot's badly damaged body was hanging in the trees.

Alfred remembers that when he reached the crash site, several civilians had arrived before him. The crash had torn apart the airplane so debris was scattered over a wide area. He said that they were busily trying to remove from the scene anything they thought they might be able to use. Alfred's father was already retrieving aluminum sheet metal from the plane debris. He used that sheet metal to make cooking pots and utensils; all metal was very scarce in Germany by that time so everyone was taking whatever they could remove quickly–before the Army came.

Alfred reported that civilians took the pilot's remains from the trees and buried him in the cemetery, at Rohnstadt, very close to the crash site.

German officials quickly removed the remaining larger debris, such as the motor, which had been too heavy and bulky for any of the civilians to haul away. Tiny pieces of metal remained strewn across a wide area of the woods and nearby fields.

Years Later


Alfred's nephew, Jurgen Radu, was born long after the war and grew up in the town of Weilmunster where he continues to live today. Over the years he heard stories of at least 7 planes that had crashed in the surrounding area.

In 2006 Jurgen bought a metal detector and began to search for these crash sites. He said that he remembered in 2011 that his mother had told him there was an American fighter plane that had crashed near Audenschmiede. So he drove there and asked people he saw on the street about the crash. They told him the general area where they had heard the plane had crashed.

The following weekend Jurgen took his metal detector and began his search. Since nobody could tell him the exact crash site, he found no metal fragments from the plane until late the second day. He kept finding pieces of the wrecked plane and eventually some of those even had part numbers on them. Jurgen said that there was still a depression in the ground that had been made by the crashed plane's impact.

He returned several times and continued to find pieces of the plane in the woods and out in the field. He made his most important find in the summer of 2011. Alerted by the sound of his metal detector, he began to dig in the open field where he had earlier found fragments from the plane. His heart must have rushed a bit when he saw that he had found a man's ring! Not just any man's ring, he realized with excitement. It had to be a ring that had belonged to the pilot. Inscribed inside the ring: W. G. Hargis.

He had discovered the identity of the pilot that his uncle had watched shot from the sky in 1945.

Jurgen used Google searches to learn much about the American pilot. He found once-classified U.S. Army documents bearing the name, William Granville Hargis. These included the Missing Air Crew Report, a map used for the mission in which Capt. Hargis died, and an eye-witness account of the shoot-down filed by the pilot of the second plane seen by the Germans that day–it flew away and returned to base.

The Missing Air Crew Report, dated February 26, 1945, states that Capt. William Granville, Hargis, service number 0-792022, was missing in action. He had been on an armed reconnaissance flight from his base at Rosieres, France to Wurnsburg, Germany, between Koblenz and Frankfurt. The report states that enemy anti-aircraft fire hit the plane and that it crashed at 1615 hours (4:15 p.m.), February 23, 1945. No parachute was seen and no one was seen walking away from the doomed plane.

"Statement by 2nd Lieutenant Clarence G. Koerber,
attached to the Missing Air Crew Report:


On the 23rd of February 1945 the squadron was on armed recon. mission. I was flying Capt. Hargis wing until the time he crashed.

We were straffing in the vicinity north of Frankfurt. Capt. Hargis called in a train which was located off our left wing. The engine had steam up. Capt. Hargis and myself turned and started down on the train. We were on the deck, just as we pulled over the train we encountered intense 20 mm flak from the nearby woods and I saw a fire flash on Capt. Hargis's plane. The plane went directly into the woods which were approximately 150 feet from the train. There was a terrific explosion as the plane hit the trees.

I pulled up and tried to get a fix, but Rip. #5 was unable to give our definite position. The approximate location of the crash is coordinate M-3588."
(Signed) Clarence G. Koerber.


This is an eye-witness account of what another American pilot saw from the air. It seems extremely unusual to have eye-witness accounts from opposing sides in the war: in this case a German civilian on the ground and an American soldier from the air.

Jurgen did another Google search using William Hargis and World War II and Germany, that resulted in only 3 hits. The first one was to http://www.murraycountymuseum.com. When Jurgen read the information posted about the dead airman, he contacted the museum to say he had substantial new information about Capt. Hargis.

Several e-mail exchanges followed. Jurgen and his daughter, Janina, provided numerous photographs of his piles of airplane pieces, then his organized display cases highlighting those fragments of Capt. Hargis's doomed fighter plane. They also provided photos of the ring that had belonged to Capt. Hargis.

Thanks to Jurgen Radu's finds, friends and relatives of Capt. Bill Hargis now know far more about his death than any ever expected to learn. The museum only had the photo of Capt. Bill Hargis, so we are profoundly grateful for the new information and photographs.

Conway C. Higdon The 1930 Census listed him in the household of John B. and Naomi Higdon, in Alaculsa, Murray County, Georgia. The household included John B. Higdon, age 56; Naomi Higdon, age 52; Ollie M. Higdon, age 25; William E. Higdon, age 20; John M. Higdon, age 17; and Charles C. Higdon, age 6. The Census indicated that Charles was a grandson who had been born in Oregon. It also indicated that the boy's father had been born in Georgia.

Rather than calling him Conway, folks opted to call him Connie.

No enlistment form for this man was found. He was listed in the U. S. Rosters of World War II Dead, 1939-1945, as Conway C. Higdon, white, male, Protestant. He was an Army, 2nd Lieutenant, Service number 715539, buried in Chattanooga National Cemetery. He died August 21, 1944.

On September 7, 1944, The Chatsworth Times reported his death. "Conway Higdon Killed in Italy. Second Lieutenant Conway C. Higdon, grandson of Mrs. Naomi Higdon, of Cisco, was killed in a plane accident in Italy on August 21, according to a telegram to Mrs. Higdon from the War Department received September 4. Lieutenant Higdon was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Charles Higdon. Besides Mrs. Higdon, he is survived by one sister, Miss Star Higdon, of Aspen, Colo., and his maternal grandmother, Mrs. Lillian Conway, of Aspen, Colo.

The officer, who was 21 years old, was born in Mill City, Oregon, but lived in Cisco from the age of two until a few years ago. He attended Murray County High School, Ensley High School in Birmingham, Ala., and Howard University at Birmingham. Before entering the service he was employed at Timkin Detroit Axle Company. He was graduated and received his commission in the Air Corps at Foster Field, Victoria, Texas, on March 12, 1944. Shortly after that he visited his grandmother at Cisco."

In that same newspaper, a regular column titled Cisco News, Bernita Harris wrote: "Another gold star goes into a window this week and with it goes a small village into mourning–mourning for one of our fine sons lost in the cause.

Last Monday, Mrs. Naomi Higdon received word from the War Department that her grandson, 2nd Lieutenant Conway C. Higdon had been killed in Italy in an airplane accident.

Friends went to the Higdon home to offer condolences to the bereaved–only to find no words to express what was in their hearts. They came away to go about their daily chores in stricken silence.

Somehow we tried to comprehend this awful thing, we kept thinking of Connie–not as a pilot of a fighter plane but as a little white-haired boy who had a liking for saltines and pecan pies. As his second-grade teacher, we remembered how he most always left his coat at school, his advanced ideas for a 7-year-old, the intensity with which he discussed a subject he loved, and how he always had his nose in a book oblivious to everything around him.

During those times when a boy must find an outlet for his artistic talents, Connie invariably came out with a new and improved airplane. (In a two-room school, art as a separate subject can hardly find a practical place in the curriculum.)

Years later came college days. There was a time during the Christmas holidays when we all went caroling. The youngsters away at school always looked forward to this season as a sort of reunion.

Finally the war came and Connie knew right away what he wanted. He applied for a place as cadet in the Army Air Corps. He was accepted and there followed months of hard work which finally bore fruit. He was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army Air Corps in the spring.

It was hard to believe this distinguished purposeful young lieutenant wearing his wings could be our own Connie.

Yes, I think if Lt. Higdon could come back, his choice would remain unchanged. He loved his work dearly and we feel that he knew from the beginning that some must die that others might live.

I think that all of use will carry this mental epitaph for Connie as long as we live: Christ's own words, John 15:13 ‘Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.'" Thanks to Paul Ross for this photo of Connie Higdon, doing his job.

MUSEUM FINDS NEW DETAILS ABOUT
WORLD WAR II DEATH OF CONNIE HIGDON
By Herman McDaniel

When the Army Air Corps notified the family of Conway C. Higdon that the aviator had died in World War II, the cause of death was simply given as "a plane accident."

Recently discovered documents in National Archives provide details of the death of this Murray County man–Connie Higdon actually died while piloting a fighter plane in aerial combat.

The official Missing Air Crew Report, dated July 16, 1944, was signed by 1st Lt. Harold R. Thysell, Assistant Operations Officer at Triolo, Italy. It indicates that members of the 48th Fighter Squadron were flying at high altitude, well above bombers they were escorting from Italy to targets in Budapest, Hungary. Weather was described as having a slight haze, with scattered clouds.

The heavily armed fighter planes each carried only the pilot.

At approximately 10:15, July 14, 1944, two of the fighter planes were last seen by fellow pilots. No radio calls were received and none of the pilots saw any damage to either of the planes that went down. None of the Americans reported seeing either parachutes or plane crashes. The military situation was so extremely dangerous that no search was possible. The remaining American planes returned to their base in Italy.

Lt. Connie Higdon, from Murray County, was the pilot of one of the missing fighter planes, Lt. Gustaf Kenneth Strom, from McKeesport, Pennsylvania, piloted the second one.

Attached to the recently discovered Missing Air Crew Report was a statement made by 2nd Lt. Henry Van Horn, a pilot who flew in a position very near that of the two missing planes.

Van Horn reported as follows: "The 48th Fighter Squadron was flying an altitude escort mission to Budapest, Hungary, on July 14, 1944. Lieut. Strom and Lieut. Higdon were flying no. 2 and no. 3 positions, respectively in Red flight. I was flying no. 4 position in the same flight. Before reaching the target our squadron sighted about 25 E/A (enemy aircraft) about to attack the bombers. In an effort to break up this attack we dove down upon the formation of E/A. Because of the difficulty encountered in recovering from this highspeed dive, our flight became separated. This occurred at approximately 10:15 and was the last time that Lieut. Higdon and Lieut. Strom were seen by any member of our squadron. When I recovered from the dive I was unable to locate Red flight so I filled in a vacancy in another flight and returned to base with them."

Addition information about Connie Higdon, including remembrances from one of his Murray County teachers, is available in the World War II section of http://www.murraycountymuseum.com.

George H. Hill The 1930 Census listed George H. Hill, then age 8, living in Militia District 870, Chattooga County, Georgia. The family consisted of: Milligan, age 46, born in Alabama; Savannah, age 46, born in Georgia; James M., age 19, born in Georgia; Robert Henry, age 15, born in Georgia; Mary Lou, age 10, born in Georgia, George H., age 8, born in Alabama; and Luke C. Hill, age 5, born in Alabama.

Carolyn Luffman spoke with Mary Dill in the Sumach community to see if she knew anything about George Hill. What a pleasant surprise–"Miss Mary" apparently knew George and his family fairly well.

"Miss Mary" Dill remembers George as "a very nice young man." They attended Sumach school together. She said that the family lived south of Sumach Church on the Rickett place, then later they moved north of the church and lived on the Oma Jean Dunn place.

"Miss Mary" also remembered various members of the family, saying that the father was Milligan and the mother was called Sarah. She remembers a sister she thinks was called Mary Louise, a brother named Luke, and another brother she thinks was Malcolm.

The details in the preceding paragraph confirms that the family living in Chattooga County in 1930 was the same family that later lived in Murray.

Two Hill family members, Lake Isaac Hill and his mother, Evelyn Helton Hill, provided extensive additional information. The father, Isaac Milligan Hill, was born August 28, 1889 and died March 1, 1959. The mother, Sarah Savannah (Brown) Hill, was born September 11, 1884 and died November 9, 1961.

The dead soldiers paternal grandparents were Robert L. and Amanda J. Hill, listed in the 1900 Census living in Ball Ground District of Murray County. Both had been born in Georgia.

George H. Hill's siblings were: James Monroe Hill (Feb. 5, 1910 - May 14, 1968); Robert Henry Hill (Oct. 12, 1912 - May 4, 1992); Mary Lou Hill Snow (June 24, 1919 - Dec. 9, 1981); and Luke Christopher Hill (June 21, 1924 - March 24, 2008).

His enlistment form indicates that George H. Hill enlisted from Fayette County, Georgia on July 11, 1942. He had completed grammar school and worked as a general farm hand. He had been born in 1921 and was single with no dependents. He enlisted as a Private at Fort McPherson, Georgia. U.S. Rosters of World War II Dead, 1939-1945 simply detail that George H. Hill, white, male, was from Georgia. He was an Army Private, with service number 34353173. This service number is same as on his enlistment form. No details of how, where, and when George died were found. "Miss Mary" remembered no specifics but she said he lost his life soon after he entered the fighting phase of his service. She thinks is was "something tragic, perhaps having to do with a ship." His family said they were told that he drowned.

The following article is from the Dalton Citizen, October 23, 1947: "Body of Pvt. Hill Returned Here for Reburial by Barbara Sikes. While the train was in the station, for about four minutes, Wednesday, another Dalton soldier returned home–returned home in a flag-draped casket–returned home to stay.

Pvt. George H. Hill was met at the station by his father, a brother, an eight-man honor guard of the V.F.W., and friends who had missed him since he left Dalton a little over five years ago, just 14 months before he was drowned in New Caledonia on October 9, 1943.

The body of Pvt. Hill was the first of a Dalton veteran to be returned home for reburial. It arrived in San Francisco on October 10 on the motor-ship Honda Knot. A special train brought home the remains of Pvt. Hill and his fellow countrymen who were killed on foreign soils and foreign waters.

Isaac M. Hill, the father, and Luke, the brother, stood with tear-filled eyes as the casket was being removed from the train by J. A. Smith, V.F.W. Commander, Charles Bevil, Gordon Dantzler, Cecil Wilkins, W. O. Cagle, A. G. Rann, Walter Kirk, and Dorsey Morgan of the local V.F.W. post.

Cpl. Thelene Cadwell was the Army honor guard who accompanied the body from Atlanta.

Funeral services will be held Thursday at 3 p.m. at the First Baptist Church with the Revs. G. D. Legg, Charlie Plemons, and Edgar Hawkins officiating. Burial with full military honors will be held at West Hill Cemetery with Kenemer Brothers in charge of the funeral arrangements.

Pvt. Hill is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac M. Hill, sister, Mrs. Marshall Snow, and brothers Monroe, Robert, and Luke Hill, all of Dalton."

A tombstone in West Hill Cemetery, Section V, Dalton, Georgia, is inscribed: George H. Hill, July 1, 1921, October 9, 1943, Ga. Pvt. 82nd Cml. Bn. WW II. That unit was the 82nd Chemical Mortar Battalion, called "The Jungle-Fighting CMB."

The family pictures were also provided by Lake Isaac Hill and his mother, Evelyn Helton Hill.

The Chatsworth Times, February 15, 1945, contained the following article: Crash Fatal to Ralph Leverette. Cpl. Ralph Leverette, 23, radio-gunner on a B-17, was killed Monday in a plane crash at Hunter Field, Savannah. The soldier's body, escorted by a sergeant from Hunter Field, arrived in Chatsworth Thursday morning.

The museum is very grateful that Craig Sheumaker who hails from Raymond, Missouri, contact us and shared this photo and the information about the crew to be posted here. Craig is proud to be the son of Clinton S. Sheumaker, Ssgt. 320 BG, 443rd BS, USAAF.

Mr. Sheumaker provided interesting information about several of the crew members in this photo, even though his father was not part of this crew. He said that John Bradley died on his first mission as a pilot in Italy. He learned from the museum website that Ralph Leverette died in a plane crash in Georgia in 1944 so never went overseas. Raymond Waddell died from burns and injuries suffered in a Georgia plane crash in 1945. Milan Vukelich owned an Italian-Slovenian Bakery in St. Paul, Minnesota for many years. Robert Crow reportedly now lives in Chicago.

Franklin Alexander McGinty, known as Frank, was born in 1912, the son of John Roy and Emma (Thomas) McGinty. His parents founded The Chatsworth Times, in 1913.

Franklin, according to a Times article published shortly after his death, "spent most of his youth in Chatsworth. He was a graduate of Chatsworth High School. Later he was graduated from the University of Georgia...He had studied music most of his life and was an accomplished pianist and organist."

Frank was living in Atlanta, teaching at Lavonia High School, just prior to joining the Navy.

His brother, Roy McGinty, Jr., followed in their father's footsteps, became publisher of The Chatsworth Times.

Franklin's parents received a letter from the Secretary of the Navy, dated September 23, 1943 that read as follows: "You were recently informed by telegram from the Bureau of Naval Personnel that your son, Franklin Alexander McGinty, Soundman third class, USNR, had been report "missing." He was a member of the crew, attached to the USS Plymouth, when that ship was sunk on 5 August 1943 as a result of an underwater explosion of unknown origin off the coast of North Carolina. The ship was set afire by the explosion and sank in approximately three and a half minutes.

Planes dropped rubber boats and life jackets, which assisted the survivors to remain afloat until rescued. The survivors were taken to Norfolk, Virginia, where many were treated for injuries sustained in the sinking. Although the body of your son was not recovered, upon reviewing the circumstances surround the loss of the vessel as reported by a formal Board of Investigation, I am reluctantly forced to the conclusion that your son lost his life in the disaster."

A subsequent article in the January 20, 1944, issue of The Chatsworth Times, reported President Cites Frank McGinty for Heroism. Franklin A. McGinty, soundman, third class, USNR, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Roy McGinty, of Calhoun, has been presented posthumously, the Navy Cross for extreme heroism while serving on the USS Plymouth when it was sunk on August 5, according to a dispatch from Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox.

The citation of the President awarding the Navy Cross reads: ‘For extraordinary heroism while serving aboard the USS Plymouth during and after the sinking of that vessel on August 5, 1943. When there was an underwater explosion amidships, causing devastating fires and extensive damage, McGinty unhesitatingly risked his life in behalf of his endangered shipmates. In a courageous attempt to rescue a man known to be trapped in the ship's flaming armory, McGinty entered the compartment and himself trapped. He gallantly gave his life in the service of his country.'"

Although most people don't seem to remember it, the Navy launched on August 5, 1944, a destroyer escort vessel that was christened the USS McGinty (DE-365). This vessel was 306 feet long and 36' 8" wide, and had a speed of 24 knots. It carried a complement of 14 officers and 201 enlisted men. It was built by the Consolidated Steel Corporation in just over 3 months, in Orange, Texas.

After a shakedown cruise near Bermuda, followed by training along the east coast of the United States, the McGinty departed Norfolk, Virginia, December 4, 1944, for escort duty in the western Pacific. Astonishingly a vessel named for a sailor who died August 5, 1943, was built and launched August 5, 1944! It was actively engaged in the war in which the ship's namesake had died less than 18 months after the sailor's death!

Frank's father, J. Roy McGinty, Sr., and stepmother traveled to Orange, Texas, for the August 5, 1944, launch of the USS McGinty. Frank's older brother, J. Roy McGinty, Jr., and sister-in-law also attended the launch. Upon their return to Georgia, Frank's brother (then Editor) published the following article in the Chatsworth Times:

"U.S.S. McGinty Is Launched Orange, Texas, August 5 – The United States Navy paid tribute today to a Georgian who lost his life in a heroic effort to save a shipmate. A ship was launched for him.

The Georgian was the late Franklin Alexander McGinty, Son of Mr. And Mrs. J. Roy McGinty, of Calhoun, Ga., and the ship is a new destroyer escort.

McGinty, who was rated a sound-man by the Navy, was aboard the U.S.S. Plymouth when she was torpedoed and sunk by enemy fire in the Atlantic on August 5, 1943. He died in an effort to rescue a shipmate from the craft.

His father is editor of the Calhoun Times, and a past president of the Georgia Press Association.

The new destroyer escort McGinty was launched today from the ways of the shipbuilding division of the Consolidated Steel Corporation, Ltd.

The slim warship slid gracefully into the waters of the Sabine river after being christened by Mrs. Henry T. Malone, of Gadsden, Ala., stepsister of the Navy hero, and was towed to the outfitting docks to be prepared for early convoy duty for the Navy.

Mrs. Malone broke the traditional bottle of champagne on the bow of the McGinty, a ceremony attended by several thousand workers, with Harvey C. Cranfill, Consolidated vice-president, as master of ceremonies. On the launching platform with Mrs. Malone were Mr. and Mrs. J. Roy McGinty, Sr., parents of the hero, of Calhoun; Mrs. and Mrs. J. Roy McGinty, Jr., his brother and sister-in-law, of Chatsworth; Navy Lt and Mrs. Charles Cline, representing Navy Secretary Forrestal; and Mrs. and Mrs. Carl Engstrom, representing the production staff of the shipyard.

The McGinty joins the great flotilla of more than 200 fighting ships launched at the Consolidated yard since Pearl Harbor. She will go into action bearing the name of a Dixie son who enlisted at Macon on August 17, 1942, and who, after training at Norfolk and Key West, was assigned to duty aboard the ill-fated Plymouth. For the heroic act in which he lost his life, he was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross.

Following the launching ceremony, members of the official party were guests at a luncheon by the shipbuilding company."

Photos are of the USS Plymouth (ship that was sunk by German Uboat); Franklin Alexander McGinty; and the USS McGinty (ship named in dead sailor's honor).

Ben Moore, Jr. The museum's efforts to positively identify this man almost failed, simply because none of Murray's senior citizens, white and black, remembered that one of Murray's war dead in that conflict had been black. Thanks are due Paul Ross and Mrs. Shirley Willis for providing both background and detailed family information, enabling the museum to include this man's story.

Ben's father and mother were Ben and Ethel Moore. The Census of 1920 listed the family as: Ben Moore, age 39; Ethel Moore, age 35; Roy Moore, age 10; Loney Moore, age 7; Annie M. Moore; age 4, and Cora Moore, age 2, living in the Ball Ground District of Murray County. The family of farmers worked on the Carter Plantation.

Ben's grandparents were listed in the 1870 Census as Edenborough Moore, age 24; Irene Moore, age 22; Emily Moore, age 4, Revener Moore, age 2, and Logan Moore, 3 months. This was the first census to list names of free, black citizens.

The 1880 Census added 5 children to the household: Ida, age 8, Lila, age 4, John N., age 3, and twins, age 1 month.

Records from the 1890 Census were destroyed in a fire.

The 1900 Census listed Arritta Moore, then age 50, as head of the household. Two sons were also listed: Elbert Moore, age 18, and Benjamin L. Moore, age 15.

This appears to mean that Sergeant Ben Moore, Jr.'s grandfather had been a slave on the Carter Plantation.

A Negro soldier named Ben Moore, Jr., born 1921, enlisted in the Army from Whitfield County on November 22, 1942. He enlisted at Fort Benning as a Private. The enlistment form indicates that he had completed grammar school, then worked as a farm hand prior to entering the service. He stood 70 inches tall and weighed 162 pounds upon enlistment. He was assigned service number 34557110. At that time the U.S. military was still segregated.

After completing his training, Ben was assigned to the 370th Infantry Regiment, 92nd Infantry Division, one of only two all-black infantry divisions sent to Europe in World War II. Ben's outfit arrived in Italy in the summer of 1944 and was first in combat August 23. They were engaged in combat near Massa Italy, starting October 5th. Sergeant Ben Moore, Jr., was killed in action on October 7, 1944. The unit was credited with eliminating numerous machine-gun nests.

Sergeant Ben Moore, Jr., was buried in Florence American Cemetery, Italy, Plot G, Row 1, Grave 2.

Although Sergeant Moore probably is not in the photo below, this picture of his unit was taken the week that he was killed. Mrs. Shirley Willis provided the picture of Sergeant Moore in uniform.

William B. Rucker was born February 18, 1924, in Knox County, Tennessee. The 1930 Census lists his family as W. B. Rucker, age 50, a school teacher; Roberta Rucker, age 35; James M. Rucker, age 13; and W. B. Rucker, age 6. The younger son listed was Ben.

Sometime in the 1930s the Ruckers moved to Murray County, into a large house just above present-day Fairy Valley Church on Highway 411. Ben attended Murray County High School, graduating with honors in the spring of 1940.

W. B. Rucker gave land upon which to build that church in 1938. Mr. Rucker died around 1940, his wife remarried a few years later and left Murray County.

Roberta Rucker's parents were Frank W. and Susan C. McCamy. Frank reportedly was born in Spring Place but the family in 1900 lived in Blairsville, Union County, Georgia. The 1910 Census listed them in Polk County, Tennessee.

This man's enlistment record lists him as William B. Rucker, Army serial number 14119034. It indicates that he enlisted at Knoxville Tennessee, June 10, 1942 as a Private in the Infantry. That record listed his residence at Georgia, specifically Murray County. He had two years of college. Although he enlisted as a Private, he was commissioned a Second Lieutenant and assigned a new Army serial number, 548867, denoting that he had become an officer.

A roster of war dead indicates that William B. Rucker, an Army Second Lieutenant, service number 548867, was killed in action in Germany. It contained no specifics.

The Chatsworth Times revealed a few personal details of this man's life in their article published January 4, 1945: "Lt. Ben Rucker Killed in Action. Lt. William Ben Rucker, 20, was killed in action on December 15 in the European area, according to a telegram from the War Department received by his mother, Mrs. W. B. Rucker, formerly of Fairy, who is now teaching in the public schools of Knoxville, Tenn.

Lieutenant Rucker, an honor graduate of the 1940 class at Murray County High School, was a talented musician and an outstanding student throughout his high school career here. He won second place in piano in the Seventh District school meet in his senior year, the student activities medal that year, and first place in Murray High awards for music students for two consecutive years.

The young officer was a senior at the University of Tennessee, studying agriculture when he volunteered for the Army Reserve in June 1942. He went on active duty in April 1943, receiving his commission as second lieutenant at Fort Benning in May, 1944, and was overseas in October. Lieutenant was a member of the "Lightning" Infantry Division. In addition to his mother, he is survived by a foster brother, Lt. (j.g.) James M. Rucker, now stationed in San Diego, Calif."

In February 2012, the museum learned some background of Ben Rucker's family–from two men that he served with in the Army! His mother was Roberta McCamy, born April 19, 1894, the daughter of Franklin Wellington and Claudia Susan Griffin. His father was William Benjamin, born in 1880. They named their son William Benjamin Rucker.

Ben Rucker was assigned to Company E, 309th Infantry, stationed at Camp Pickett, Virginia, prior to the unit being deployed to Europe. His unit engaged German soldiers inside Germany but very close to the Belgian border. The fighting there is referred to now as the first battle of Kesternich, Germany. Keith Mygrants, a member of the same company, said that Lt. Rucker was killed "by a direct hit, probably from an 88 shell, in the night of December 14, 1944." Keith and Ben's mother, Roberta, exchanged several letters after Ben's death.

After the war, the Army returned the body to Ben's mother, then living in Knoxville. He was buried in Lynnhurst Cemetery, Knox County, Tennessee. His grave marker lists: Rucker, William B., Jr., Feb. 18, 1924 - Dec. 15, 1944. The picture of his grave is courtesy of Sue Reneau Damewood, who had posted it on www.findagrave.com .

Jim Cooper had left a message on the same website, reporting specifically what unit he had been serving in at the time of his death. When reached by email, Jim indicated that he and two other men who had been serving in Ben's unit when he was killed, all remembered the young lieutenant had been a good platoon leader, well liked by everyone. Jim had no pictures of Ben but provided contact information to the two others who had been present the night Ben died. Stan Polny had no pics, but felt sure that Keith Mygrants would have. Keith provided the group picture below. He said that it was taken at Camp Pickett in early September 1944. Lt. Ben Rucker is in the front row, counting from left, the sixth man.

The other picture of Ben as a high school senior was cropped from a group photo of Murray County High School students who sang on WSB (Atlanta) radio in 1939.

Robert B. Shields was born December 11, 1924 in Georgia. The 1930 Census listed the family as Judge S. Shields, age 24; Jessie Shields, age 22; and Robert B. Shields, age 5. They lived in Tennga, Murray County, Georgia.

Robert's enlistment record states that he completed three years of high school, was single, and had no dependents. He enlisted as a Private, April 17, 1943, at Fort McPherson, Atlanta. His service number was 34768268. At the time of his death he held the rank of Private First Class. No military documents concerning his death and burial were found.

His death was reported in the April 6, 1944, issue of The Chatsworth Times as follows: "Pfc. Shields Dies in Calif. Pfc. Robert B. Shields, of Tennga, died on April 4 as the result of an accident at Hunter Liggett Military Reservation in California, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Stanton J. Shields, were notified in a telegram received this week.

The soldier is survived by his parents and one sister, Miss Bonnie Sue Shields. No details of the accident were given in the telegram. The body will be brought home for burial."

Robert's sister, Bonnie Sue Shields Higdon, remembers that the Army appointed Sergeant Andrew Frizen to escort Robert's body from California to Murray County, Georgia. She said that Sgt. Frizen told the family that Robert had been serving in the 1st Engineer Combat Battalion at Fort Hunter Liggett. He reported that Robert had been in his tent, sitting on his cot, when a piece of rock crashed through the tent and hit Robert on the head, killing him instantly. Sgt. Frizen told the family that members of the unit were working with explosives nearby, and that the piece of rock had been thrown with such force that it flew to the tent and killed Robert.

Robert Shields was buried in Liberty Baptist Church Cemetery in Tennga, Murray County, Georgia. His marker reads: Robert B. Shields, Dec. 11, 1924 - Apr. 5, 1944. Adjacent tombstones are for his father, Stanton J. (1905-1964), and mother, Jessie W. Shields (1907-1910).

The museum thanks Paul Ross for contacting Bonnie Sue Higdon to procure more information about Robert's death and the following photograph.

Leonard I. Smith was born in Georgia in 1916. The 1930 Census listed his family as Jim Smith, age 43; May D. Smith, age 16, Leonard Smith, age 14; Granville Smith, age 10; Lema Smith, age 7; and Lizzie D. Smith, age 3. They lived in the Shuck Pen District of Murray County.

Leonard's enlistment form indicated that he was living in Floyd County when he enlisted in the military. It also stated that he was married but provided no information regarding his wife and any family they might have had. Leonard had completed grammar school and worked in the manufacture of textiles before enlisting. He enlisted as a Private, August 12, 1943, at Fort McPherson, Georgia. The military records listed his service number as 34827131, and gave his rank at time of death as PFC in the Army. No details of the date or circumstances of his death were found. A grave marker in Eton Cemetery lists Leonard I. Smith, born April 11, 1916, died July 12, 1944.

William Ellis Stroud was born in Georgia in 1909. The Census of 1930 lists the family as William S., age 59; Rosa E., age 51; John H., age 22; Willie E., age 19; and Dorsey L. Stroud, age 13. All of these had been born in Georgia.

William's enlistment record state that he completed grammar school and worked as a general farm hand. It also stated that he was married but contained no details of his wife or family. He enlisted as a Private April 21, 1944 at Fort McPherson, Atlanta. His service number was 34980135. He was living in Murray County, Georgia, just prior to enlisting. Pvt. Stroud was serving with the 22nd Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division, in Belgium when he died, November 27, 1944, about seven months after he enlisted. He was buried in grave A-17-22 at Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery in Belgium.

Shortly after his death, The Chatsworth Times published this article: "W. E. Stroud Killed in Action. Pvt. William Ellis Stroud, son of Mrs. and Mrs. W. S. Stroud, Route 2, Chatsworth, has been reported killed in action in Germany, on November 27. Other survivors are the soldier's wife, Mrs. Hazel Stroud, and two daughters, Wilena and Caroline Fay Stroud, all of Dalton; one brother, Hoke Stroud; and four sisters, Mrs. W. W. Kendrick, of Cisco, Mrs. A. A. Vaughn, of Dalton, Mrs. W. H. Isenhour, of Dalton, and Mrs. Hoke Franklin, of Route 4, Dalton.

After The Chatsworth Times, in March 2012, printed a brief article stating that the museum still needed pictures of several Murray men who had died in World War II, Marjorie (Henderson) Tankersley contacted the museum to say that she knew a few things about Ellis Stroud. She said that was how he was known to everybody. She said that he had married someone named Hazel and that they had a daughter. Most importantly she said that a Murray man named Bob Kendrick was a nephew to the soldier.

Bob Kendrick confirmed that his mother, Mildred Stroud, was one of Ellis's four sisters. Mildred had married W. W. Kendrick of Cisco. Georgia had married W. H. Isenhower of Dalton. Corena married A. A. Vaughn of Dalton. Dorsey married Hoke Franklin, also from Dalton. Kendrick confirmed that Ellis had an older brother named Hoke, as shown in the 1930 Census.

Kendrick also said that Ellis had married Hazel Cogburn and that they had a daughter named Billie Stroud. He said that Ellis and Hazel had lived near his parents on Buttermilk Hill, near Franklin School, on Mitchell Bridge Road, when Ellis entered the Army.

So far as having pictures, Kendrick said that his entire collection of older family photos had been destroyed in a flooded basement several years ago. He knew of no one else in Murray who might still have pictures of the dead soldier's family. Although he had not seen Ellis's daughter in years, he remembered that she had married a Whitfield County man named Farmer but could not recall the man's first name.

After several phone calls to Whitfield families named Farmer, someone said that she knew both Billie and Billie's daughter (granddaughter to Ellis), and would ask one of them to contact the museum. The granddaughter called, said that she had a box of old pictures, was certain that she could find one of Ellis.

The picture of Ellis Stroud in uniform was provided by Brenda Duncan Penland. Picture of man wearing overalls is William S. Stroud, father to Ellis. Marjorie Tankersley gave this to the museum.

Huse B. Terry a sailor, was the first Murray County man killed in World War II. He died, along with some 120 fellow American sailors, when a Japanese Navy task force sank their ship, USS Pillsbury, in the South Java Sea on March 1, 1942. There were no survivors.

The 1920 Census listed Huse's immediate family as: Grover Terry, age 34; Addie Terry, age 27, R. L. Terry, age 10; Julian Terry, age 8; and H. B. Terry, age 3. They lived in the McDonald District. The Census indicated that all family members had been born in Georgia.

The 1930 Census included a bit more about the family. It indicated that the father was Grover C. Terry, and the mother was Sarah A. Terry. This census also listed two new off-spring: Billie P. Terry, age 9, and G. C. Terry, age 3. Hazel Terry was born after 1930 so her name does not appear on that Census. She helped to fill in some blanks concerning family names. She said that their father's full name was Grover Cleveland Terry and the mother's was Sarah Addie (Pintle) Terry. R. L. was Robert Lee. Julian had no middle name. H. B. was Huse. Billie P. actually was a male, so Billy, but he had no middle name or initial. G. C. was Grover Cleveland Terry, named for his father. Hazel had only the one name. Hazel said that Huse probably was named for his Dad's older brother. G. C. confirmed this and added that the uncle had been Dr. Huse Terry who lived in Acworth, Georgia.

Huse B. Terry is honored by two burial markers. The one erected by the U.S. Navy at Fort William McKinley, at Manila, The Philippines, indicates that he had been a Machinist's Mate, Second Class and had been awarded the Purple Heart. Another, in Chatsworth Heights Cemetery, Murray County, Georgia, is inscribed "In memory of Huse B. Terry, Feb. 1916, March 1942. Lost at Sea." In adjacent graves are his father, Grover C. Terry (1885-1962), and his mother, Addie S. Terry (1890-1978).

The following report was transcribed from the March 26, 1942, issue of The Chatsworth Times: "H. B. Terry Is County's First War Casualty. Navy Department Reports Murray Youth Missing. H. B. Terry, son of Mr. and Mrs. Grover Terry, of Eton, has been reported by the Navy Department as missing and thus became Murray County's first war casualty. The Terrys received news that their son, a machinist on the cruiser Pillsbury, was missing in a telegram from the Navy Department Friday.

The telegram asked that the parents not reveal the name of the boat their son was on as it might give information to the enemy. However, the Navy department publicly announced Tuesday that the cruiser Pillsbury had been lost and that all members of the crew were missing, thus ending the need for further secrecy. The young man, a native of this county, was about 26 years old. His brother, Billy, also with the Navy, is on duty in the Pacific.

Mr. and Mrs. Terry have one daughter, Hazel, and three other sons, R. L., Julian, and G.C., all of whom are at home. The flag on the court house lawn was at half-mast last Friday as a gesture of respect to H. B. Terry."

The pictures include Huse Terry in uniform; the USS Portland, the ship he and his brother were serving together on shortly before Huse was transferred, and the USS Pillsbury, Huse was aboard when it was sunk by the Japanese.

John C. Waters Family and friends called him Johnny. His sister, Rose Long, provided family details.

Johnny's parents were William Francis Waters and Laura Brackett Waters. Laura's mother is said to have been a full blood Cherokee. William and Laura had three children: Pauline, Juanita, and Johnny. Johnny, born in 1923 in Tennessee, was only 7 months old when his mother died. He went to live with his mother's sister, named Maples.

Johnny's father married a second wife, Lucy Loretta Britton. They had four children: James Newton Waters; Rose Mary Waters; Andrew Jackson Waters; and Katie Sue Waters.

At the time that the 1930 Census was taken, Johnny, Pauline, and Juanita were living with their father and step-mother in District 4, Monroe, Tennessee. That Census listed the family as: Will Fay Waters, age 41; Lucy Waters, age 36; James Waters, age 3; Rose Mary Waters, age 2; Jack Waters, 7 months; Pauline Waters: age 14; Juanita Waters, age 17; Eline Waters, age 8; and John Waters, age 6.

It is unclear when the family moved to Murray County, Georgia, Army records clearly indicate that John was living in Murray County when he entered active duty.

Johnny completed grammar school, then worked in sawmilling. He never married. Soon after he turned 18, Johnny was drafted. He entered the army at Fort McPherson, Atlanta, February 19, 1943. His enlistment record indicates that he was single, no dependents. He stood 67 inches tall and weighed 133 pounds at time of enlistment. He entered the service from Murray County. His service number was 34760857. Immediately after he completed basic training and had a brief home leave, he was deployed overseas.

On December 5, 1943, Private John C. Waters, along with many other men in his unit, died in fighting in Italy. Details of that fighting are unknown to the museum. He was buried at Nettuno Permanent Cemetery, Nettuno, Italy, grave G-13-51.

Special thanks are due to Rose Long for providing family details and all of the following pictures, to her daughter, Becky McAfee, for getting all of the pictures scanned and submitted to the museum, and to Johnny Waters who pointed the museum to the right line of families named Waters where we found Rose.

The following photograph of the grave marker for Johnny Waters was obtained through teamwork involving Robert Green, Joy Riggers, and Ernest Rossi. Thanks to all!

John Henry Wilbanks was born May 6, 1906. The 1920 Census listed his family as W. D. Wilbanks, age 46; Annie Wilbanks, age 42; Bethenia Wilbanks, age 18; Henry Wilbanks, age 13; Fite Wilbanks, age 11; Lou Wilbanks, age 9; Sarah Wilbanks, age 7; Georgia Wilbanks, age 5; W. D. Wilbanks, age 3; and Daily G. Wilbanks, 1 month. The family lived in Murray's Doolittle District. All had been born in Georgia. John Wilbanks was a First Lieutenant in the Marine Corps, assigned to the 1st Marine Division in the Pacific Theater. That unit had landed on Guadalcanal. He died in fighting January 16, 1944. Five years later his body was returned to the United States and buried at Marietta National Cemetery, Marietta, Georgia.

In their February 17, 1944 issue, The Chatsworth Times published the following article: "Henry Wilbanks Dies of Wounds. First Lieutenant John Henry Wilbanks, of the U. S. Marine Corps, has died as a result of wounds received in action, his wife has been notified in a telegram received last Saturday from his commanding officer. Lieutenant Wilbanks would have been 39 years old on May 16 and would have completed 17 years of service in the marines in June. After leaving the States for the last time on June 10, 1942, the lieutenant was sent to the Pacific theater of war and was a member of the First Marine division which landed at Guadalcanal.

The Marine was the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Wilbanks, Route 2, Chatsworth. His wife, a native of Spain whom he met and married while station in Cuba, is the former Miss Maria G. Enrico. They had three children, John Henry, Jr., Mary Ann, and Cathryn, who was 16 months old but had never seen her father.

Lieutenant Wilbanks is also survived by five sisters and three brothers: Mrs. H. V. Sanford, of this county; Miss Will D. Wilbanks, of Rome; Mrs. Aaron Deck, of Dalton; Mrs. Raymond Gentry and Mrs. A. E. Roberson, both of Alabama City, Ala.; A. F. Wilbanks and Daley Wilbanks, both of Alabama; and Private Hamilton Wilbanks of the U. S. Army.

The Marine was born in Murray County and attended the local schools."

None of the Murray citizens, including several named Wilbanks, contacted by the museum remembered this man.

After the Dalton Citizen ran an article about the museum's project honoring Murray's World War II soldiers who died while on active duty, Lt. Wilbanks' daughter, Kathy, emailed the museum from Knoxville. A cousin living in Dalton had sent her the newspaper article. Kathy wrote in her email "My father was killed in the war January 16, 1944, USMC First Lieutenant John Henry Wilbanks, known at home as Henry. I have a small suitcase filled with documents, letters, souvenirs, cards, etc., which Mother kept, and gave to me before she died. I also have a framed picture of Daddy in his uniform which hung in an honored place in our home throughout my life."

Kathy also wrote that "Daddy married a Spanish woman who was living in Cuba when he was stationed at Guatanemo Bay, March 18, 1933. He had courted her for 5 years before she agreed to marry him. Mother's maiden name was Maria Gados Encizo y Catena; Daddy called her Gladys. She used the name Maria G. Wilbanks. They were married in Cuba. My brother John H. Wilbanks, Jr., was born there. My sister Mary Ann was born in Calhoun soon after Mother came to this country in 1936. I was conceived in the year Daddy left for the last time, in 1942."

Kathy provided two corrections for the above Chatsworth Times report of her father's death. Before her marriage Kathy's legal name was Kathryn Catena Wilbanks. Her father's sister actually was Mrs. Aaron Decker.

Kathy also sent a newspaper article from The Chattanooga Times, probably from 1951, because Gladys Wilbanks mentioned that Kathryn was then 9 years old. Gladys also told about coming home with John to the United States, living first in Calhoun. She said that in later years the lived in other areas, wherever John was assigned to serve–Paris Island, S.C., New River, N.C., and Quantico, Virginia.

During these years, Gladys said that she learned to speak English and obtained U.S. citizenship. At the time the article was published, Gladys and her three offspring were living in the Chattanooga area.

Gladys explained that her family originally lived in Spain. When her father died, she said that her mother brought her three small children to Cuba to live.

This article contained details of John's death. It quoted from a Citation for the Silver Star Medal..."First Lieutenant John Henry Wilbanks, USMC, dashed through Japanese sniper and machine gun fire in an attempt to rescue the team of a Marine tank, bogged down in a shell crater. While working to execute his voluntarily assigned mission of rescuing the imprisoned crew, Lieutenant Wilbanks fell, mortally wounded before bursts of enemy machine gun fire." This marine was awarded the Silver Star posthumously.

Kathy said that her father's remains were returned to Georgia in 1947. After a funeral at Mt. Zion Methodist Church in Chatsworth, John Henry Wilbanks was buried at the National Cemetery at Marietta, Georgia.

Kathy reported that her mother died on Veteran's Day, 2007, at age 97. She had lived with Kathy's family the final years of her life.

The museum thanks Kathy for providing the following items:

The father had been born in Georgia, the mother in Ohio, and all of their children in Georgia.

His enlistment records indicate that Gordon completed grammar school, then worked in a planing mill. He was single, with no dependents. He was 66 inches tall and weighed 148 pounds. He enlisted as a Private July 13, 1941, at Fort McPherson, Atlanta. His service number was 34085211.

Edd Young was born Edgar Coley Young, June 18, 1915, in Georgia. He was known simply as "Edd." The 1930 Census listed his family living in the Bull Pen District of Murray County: Perry Young, age 58, born in South Carolina, a farmer; Mollie Young, age 54, born in Georgia; John Young, age 25, born in Georgia, a soldier in U.S. Army; George Young, age 20, born in Georgia; Ruby Young, age 17, born in Georgia; Edgar Young, age 14, born in Georgia; and Verena Young, age 20, listed as daughter-in-law to Perry, who was head of the household. Verena probably was married to John.

An Ancestry family tree indicates that his father was John Perry Young (1872-1938) and his mother was Mollie (Smith) Young (1875-1958). Brothers were: Clinton H. Kirby Young (1898-1980); John Young (1903-1931); and George Washington Young (1909-2000). Sisters were: Dora Juanita Young (1906-1986) and Ruby Young (1912-1938).

Ancestry also listed Edd's spouse as Frances Elizabeth Hunley (1926-1996).

His Army enlistment record used the name Edgar Young, and indicates that he enlisted from Murray County, Georgia. The form states that he completed grammar school and did general farm work. It lists his height as 70 inches and his weight as 145 pounds. He was single and had no dependent. He enlisted as a Private on February 22, 1941, at Fort McPherson, Georgia.

Although his enlistment record indicates that he was single when he enlisted, Edd married Frances Elizabeth Hunley soon after he enlisted. A daughter, Ruby, was born November 22, 1942, in Murray County.

Edd served with the 2652nd Provisional Ordnance Ammunition Company, attached to the U.S. Fifth Army during the invasion of North Africa in 1942-43. The unit provided for the ammunition needs of the advancing forces during the invasion of Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, and Libya. After Edd's death his unit participated in the invasion of Italy.

The U.S. Rosters of World War II Dead, 1939-1945, indicate that Edd Young was male, white, Protestant, from Georgia, a Private in the Army, with Service number 34025997. A file in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs listed his death as Edgar Coley Young, male, Social Security number 413366796, died August 14, 1943. Neither of these documents contain any details regarding how and where Edd died.

Family remembrances are that he was killed in North Africa. His daughter, Ruby, remembers that several years after the war ended, her dad's body was returned and he was buried in Robinson-Kilgore Cemetery, Murray County. Adjacent graves include those of his father, mother, and brother, John.

May 2013 Update . Edd's daughter, Ruby, submitted this newly discovered article from The Chatsworth Times, August 1943, that confirms that her dad died in North Africa. Edd Young, Early Voluntees, Dies in Africa . Edd Young, 28, one of the first volunteers for Army duty from Murray county, died on August 14 while servince his country in Africa. Mrs. Young, wife of the soldier, was notified in a telegram from the War Department received last Saturday night.

Young is the son of Mrs. Mollie Young, of the Bull Pen community, and the late Perry Young. He also leaves a nine-month-old child, one sister, Mrs. George T. Robinson, and two brothers, Kirby and George Young.

The soldier was inducted into the Army on February 20, 1941, having volunteered in November, 1940. He spent a furlough at home with his family last December.

Museum Notes: child mentioned in article was Ruby. Furlough was December 1942.

Edd's daughter, Ruby, provided the following pictures of Edd in uniform, an artist's version of Edd, and his grave marker.

Important Note: Three lists follow.

The first is being created using information from the bricks that have been placed in Murray's Veterans Memorial Park, plus names that museum visitors ask to be added. This list can also include veterans who honorably served during World war II, before moving to Murray County. Submit names to be added to this list.

The second listing is of the first 100 Murray County men drafted in World War II. It lists names in the order in which the men were drafted, meaning that the entire list must be searched line by line to find a name. This previously unknown list was submitted to the museum by Susan Lynn (Crump) Hunter in 2011, when she requested that her father, Olen Spencer Crump, be added to the list of World War II Veterans. He was Murray draftee number 97. No changes will be permitted to this list because it is a historical document.

The third listing is of only Army enlisted personnel who actually lived in Murray County when they entered active service. There are no officers, and no Navy or Marine personnel in this collection. The second list reflects information gathered from National Archives and will not be changed for any reason-even keying errors.

Enlistment Information for Murray Men 1939-45.
Extracted from National Archives
by Herman McDaniel in 2011.

Note: This list does NOT name every Murray man who served during those years. These are only Army enlisted men-no officers, no Navy and no Marines. The records look a bit strange because they were originally created as punch-cards in a very rigidly fixed format. The symbol # meant a blank space. When the National Archives received the microfilmed images of the punch-cards from the Army, many were incomplete, some were totally unreadable.

Information is in this sequence: Service Number, name, state and country where man enlisted from, where enlisted, year enlisted, enlisted from what circumstances, year born.
