Dear Joy,

I can't thank you enough for taking the wonderful photos of this gravesite. Neither of my aunts or cousins had ever seen where their husband/brother/father was laid to rest, and it means so much to them. I made each of them a set of the photos. They were moved to tears to be able to visualize where he is.

Thank you for your kind heart and your time.

RE: Joshua Barton
Joshua Barton was a member of Company C, 12th Indiana Infantry. He mustered into the service on August 17th 1862 from Independence, Indiana. He was captured and mustered out of the service on June 13th, 1865. I'm not sure where he was captured or what date. I hope this helps...

John B. Dickson
On December 2, 1944, pilot John B. Dickson's crew (B-24H # 42-51100, nicknamed "Tiger," assigned to the 706th Bomb Squadron) was scheduled as part of a raid on the railway facilities at Bingen, Germany. The weather was cloudy, forcing the lower squadrons to fly through cloud banks. The target was reached and bombed through the clouds, with unknown results. On the withdrawal from target movement, no flak or fighters were seen. Two B-24s fell behind the formation and disappeared into the clouds. Neither was seen again, and neither returned home...It is speculated that Dickson's B-24 collided with B-24H # 42-95105, named "She's Mine," piloted by John E. Ilstad. Missing Air Crew Report 11054 was issued.

The crew complement of "Tiger" is identified as:

2 Lt John B. Dickson p
2 Lt Lawrence A. Whitaker c-p
2 Lt Ernest Levine nav
2 Lt Anthony P. Bonaiuto bomb/nose gun
Sgt John D. Sauran eng/tt gun
Sgt John R. Christman r/o

Thank you for the quick response on Wm. Warner. William grew up in Wethersfield and his parents erected a monument in his honor.
