Dear Sir, Madam,
Please assist me with the following.
I am from Holland and have an interest in WW 2 history. I do research about US servicemen who were killed in WW 2 and are/were buried in the US Military Cemetery in Holland (and Belgium), near where I live.
I am searching in particular a picture from: John S. Turner, KIA 22 March 1945. He was from Fairfield, CT and enlisted 6 April 1943.His brother was Stephen/Steven (died 2013) and his sister was called Ann (died 2012).
Can you please help me? Perhaps there was a notice about his death in a local newspaper in 1945 or about his enlistment in 1943.
Other information will also be appreciated.
Thank you in advance, kind regards from Holland, AN
I have a grandfather named Henry Scofield who lived, as an adult, in Orange County, New York. He married Julia Vandervoort on 13 December 1817 at the Reformed Dutch Church in Warwick, Orange, New York. They went on to have 9 known children and seem to have raised an additional child relative.
In the 1840 Census, at the Henry Scofield entry, there's 1 man aged 40-<50 years. [Probably Henry, DOB ~ 1790-1800]
In the 1850 Census, Henry of Goshen was 59 years old (DOB ~1791), born in Connecticut.
In the 1860 Census, Henry was 70 years old (DOB ~1790), born in Connecticut.
Henry died 23 June 1863, Goshen [probably on his farm in the Town of Goshen], Orange, New York.
The few online family pedigree sites where Henry appears has him entered as the Henry Scofield born in Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut on 6 May 1790, the son of Henry Scofield (1762-1819) and Mary Reed (1766-1819).
* That Henry Scofield is seen at the "Stamford, CT Families (1641-1935)" site: <http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=gen1775&id=I10439>.
* A student of Scofield-ism, Jim Minervino, makes a persuasive argument of logic that Henry of Goshen is the same Henry born in Stamford in 1790: <http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.scofield/3126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1.1.1/mb.ashx>.
Does anyone know of a paper link between the Henrys or is the Jim Minervino analysis compelling without primary evidence?
Thank you, Julia
