My problem is that I have no definites.I recently found the name Roy Walter Goodman and sent off for an obituary for him to see if that could be him.My mother was pretty adamant that he was buried in Indiana, but she did not attend his funeral.She said that Walter's parents remained in Kenton after his death, but she wasn't allowed to speak to them.She said there was "bad blood" between the families.She also said that Walter had remarried prior to his death.
The VFW in Kenton has him listed on their "wall of honor" but no further information.The 1930 census lists his birth place as Hancock County, Ohio, but I have not found his actual birth record yet.In 1930 he was living in Kenton, Hardin County, Ohio with my grandmother and my mother.It's the first official record that I have found that puts them all together.
Walter E. Goodman, Service ID #20505269, from Hardin County appears to be him.He was born about 1909, in Hancock County Ohio (according to the 1930 census).
It's really difficult to search without any definites.I sure appreciate the tips that you have given me.
Just FYI, On my father's side, 8 of the 11 children served in WWII, and they are Ohio's "Blue Star Family".I have a copy of the newspaper article from 1942 and the pictures of them all!
