Mary Thickitt photo Thank you so much for the picture of Mary Thickitt's headstone. I really appreciate your efforts. Mary was my gr gr grandmother. I see that there was another headstone connected to hers, presumably for my gr gr grandfather but I did not see any inscription. Can you tell me if that headstone was blank? Thank you Lynn Apponi
Sylvia Horowitz I just put out another request for Sylvia at Beth David and inclued all the numbers you will need to find her. Maybe you can find the request. No one has taken it yet. Thank you, Linda Mae Angleton
Edmund Torpey Not sure about the other two, but I found this on the web. He was sent overseas on October 26, 1943 and served as a Bombardier and gunner with the 527th Bomb Squadron, 379th Bomb Group, operating out of Kimbolton. On January 30, 1944, the crew participated in a mission to bomb an aircraft factory in Braunschweig, Germany.
On the way back to England, the bombers were attacked by German fighters who were sent up to intercept them. One source states that Unteroffizier Franz Schilling, of 7./JG26, attacked a straggling bomber which he shot down. It was his first shoot down. The plane crashed north of Bergen aan Zee.
This was Lt. Winter's B17. It crashed near the town of Schoorl, on the Dutch coast, near the Pirolavlakte. The whole crew was killed in the crash.
Virtual Flower A special thank you for leaving the flower on my Great Grandmother memorial "Yetta Sheftelman". It means a great deal to me. I don't know if and when I will ever get to NY to attempt to photograph her grave for my genealogy book, but if you need anything in the Winchester, Va area please let me know. Thank you again.
