I am looking for help from anyone who can help me secure copies of obituaries and get in touch with any family members of Alfred R. ROSSMAN Jr formerly of Westside, IA who died in an aircraft accident while in the service of the AAF on 23 April 1943.
I'm looking for obituaries following his death and any other newspaper accounts printed when his body was returned state side for burial around the middle of June 1948.
My uncle, F/O Earle C. BERGERON, was the only other fatality in the accident that claimed Alfred ROSSMAN's life. The crash occurred at the Chabua air base located in the Upper Assam region of India.
As a result of research efforts into my uncle's death, I have learned that Alfred R. ROSSMAN, Jr was from Westside, IA. Date of birth was 31 Oct 1917; his father's name was Alfred R. ROSSMAN and his mother's name was listed as Mary E. ROSSMAN. My uncle and 2nd Lt. ROSSMAN were members of the 6th Ferrying Squadron, 1st Ferry Group and as mentioned earlier, they both died 23 April 1943. 2nd Lt. ROSSMAN was buried in St Ann's Cemetery in Vail, Crawford county, IA around the date of 21 June 1948.
I would like to correspond with any surviving family members and would be grateful for any assistance/direction that anyone can provide. If you know who these family members are, please feel free to pass my name and email address on to them so they can choose whether or not to contact me.
Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

CURL family known to have had an early presence in Crawford and Clinton
counties. Has anyone out there any records that would aid me in tracking
the family thru to the west coast. I believe there are some in the
Clintonia Cemetery or possibly the Clinton County Cemetery.According to
local family info some of the early relatives came thru Pottawattami County
(early being mid 1800s.

For anyone that is interested, I just saw this book listed for auction on
EBAY. It has about four days left until the auction closes.
I've been able to find worthwhile biographies of Crawford county family
members in it when I was researching kin in the Denison library. Perhaps
you can do the same.
Good luck! Here is the link:
