What's New


Tree:  

18 OCT 2022:

Added a government publication:

"Tell Me About My Boy." It was compiled and distributed by the U.S. Army Quartermaster General and later by the American Graves Registration Service. It offered guidance to the next of kin of servicemen killed during WWII on how their kin's remains would be repatriated. On this website it is now linked to 37 men who were documented as KIA/DOW or otherwise died overseas during WWII and whose bodies were recovered.


08 MAR 2022:

Database was finally updated with roughly 168 new documents - most of which are obituaries. Please send a note to me if a page does not render with data.

01 NOV 2021:

Added a Watermark to all media on this website - but will gladly send you a copy sans watermark if you click on the request at the bottom of each media. My purpose in adding the watermark is to keep bots from running off with our research for their monetary gain. The example below is associated with each photo or document on the site.

20 FEB 2020:
An individual's "Descendants - Count" tab has been enhanced to reflect counts of "Total" and of "Living"

'Tell Me About My Boy'
"Tell Me About My Boy"
This brochure was compiled and distributed by the Technical Information Branch of the U.S. Army Quartermaster General and later by the American Graves Registration Service. It offered guidance to the next of kin of servicemen killed during WWII on how their kin's remains would be repatriated. By convention, all service deaths overseas during the war were interred in a temporary grave - immaculately laid out. After the war the next of kin were canvased about their wishes for final burial. They had four options:

1. In a private cemetery in the United States.
2. In a private cemetery in a foreign county.
3. In a permanent United States cemetery overseas.
4. In an permanent National cemetery in the United States .

The next of kin were established methodically if the deceased was not married:

1. Surviving spouse.
2. Son, if over 21 years if the spouse had remarried.
3. Father, if no son was over 21 years.
4. Mother.
5. Eldest brother over 21 years.
6. Eldest sister over 21 years.
4. Other relatives in the (unspecified) order of their relationship.

The pamphlet is linked on this website to 37 men (as of 28 OCT 2022) who were documented as KIA/DOW or otherwise died overseas during WWII and whose bodies were recovered. Relatives of personnel listed as MIA were not included in the distribution nor in the procedures.
[The library staff at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) graciously rendered the full document into PDF version at my request on 18 OCT 2022.]

Pate, James Elvie: 1944 A Tough 'Ombre
Pate, James Elvie: 1944 A Tough 'Ombre
In December 1941, James Elvie Pate was a 32-year-old, single ranch hand on the Tommy Brook Ranch in west Texas and a base violin player in a local band. By April 1942 he had joined the U.S. Army and was assigned to the 90th Infantry Division – the Tough ‘Ombres. Two years later he was a married sergeant aboard a ship passing by the Statue of Liberty - bound for England and eventual participation in the landings on Utah Beach. Four days following that landing and within several miles of the beach he was wounded and sent back to England for treatment. Upon return to France he fought in the operation known as the Falaise Pocket. Just days before that battle was won, Sergeant Pate paid the ultimate sacrifice. Years later his only sister fought to have her Tough ‘Ombre returned home to Texas.

The story of Sergeant Pate's service reflects the great care Virginia (Wilson) Bailey, his niece, took to collect and retain artifacts of his service and her graciousness in sharing them with the author.

The booklet is available @ www.TheBookPatch.com and searching for "Sergeant James Elvie Pate"

Scott, John Edgar: 1944 'Butts on this Article'
Scott, John Edgar: 1944 "Butts on this Article"
This document captures an experience upon which John Scott did not elaborate with his children during his lifetime. The only detail that his eldest daughter knew was that he had been briefly captured by the German army during WWII and scars on his back were the lingering evidence. At some point he may have provided his wife, Vivian, with other details, but apparently she also did not share them. Fortunately, Vivian retained several artifacts John had sent home during the war that eventually made researching details a family imperative. One of those artifacts was a Stars & Stripes Newspaper article with the title "38th Regt. Bags 78 Tanks In Four-Day Bulge Battle." It seemed innocuous because John was not assigned to the 38th Regiment and because one battle would generally be indistinguishable from another. But there were aspects of the article that made this battle story different – very different - and John he wanted Vivian to read it. So, in the margin near the portion titled “Americans Rescued” John had added a marginal note; "Butts on this article - Scott." His note was akin to claiming "dibs" – although even that explanation may no longer be in common use. John's note simply declared that once the newspaper had been read by all his fellow unit soldiers, he wanted to cut the story from the paper. He did mail the article to Vivian along with a few others describing the capture of American soldiers. As the attached document describes, John was one of those captured soldiers.

Leverett, Nicholas T: 2011 Confederate Veteran
When Nicholas Thompkins Leverett was first added to the family tree I knew only that NT was the great-great-grandfather of my bride, Lana (Scott) Carr and that he was a Confederate veteran. Initially, I was satisfied with that limited knowledge and did not pursue more detail. After writing and posting a story to CarrFamilyTree.com about Lana's father, MSG John Edgar Scott, I sought more information about NT.

Stallard, Clara Ashe (Carr): 2011 - A Postmortem
Clara's cremated remains were discovered in 2008 by the occupant of a home in Orem, Utah. That find enabled Clara to be returned to her family - even if the details of how she got lost in the first place remain but a guess. The story at the link is the result of collaboration by two researchers on opposite sides of her marriage.

Howard, Tillmer D: 1942-1944 & the 6th Armored Infantry Regiment
While Tillmer Howard was enduring basic training, his eventual unit, the 6th Armored Infantry Regiment, conducted training maneuvers with British units in Northern Ireland. Then in September 1942, two battalions left Ireland for England and additional training with British units. In October the two battalions again boarded ships as part of Operation Torch - combat operations in North Africa.

Carr, Louis Drury: 2012 Educator and Grand Knight
Initially this biography, based simply upon memories, was a single page long and thus proved to be a great disappointment to say the least - surely more could be learned with a modicum of effort! After researching his WWI service - which proved to be an education in itself - many other details fell into place. As with the other histories on this website - all veterans - I am indebted to family members for their contributions - the errors are all mine and will be corrected when brought to my attention.

RJCarr, 11 Feb 2022: The mother, Anna, on this certificate does not match that in the tree which suggest that son John is not properly linked in this tree. On the other hand, John and Anna (Prokovitch) Dzurissin's son John appears on the 1900 census with them, but has not been found on subsequent census enumerations. This death certificate may explain his absence on the 1920 census.
