Hello, I am trying to help a family in The Netherlands locate the family of Pfc. Ralph L. Watson who was killed in WWII and is buried in the Netherlands American Cemetery in Margraten.Pfc. Watson was born July 24, 1921. He was in the 405th IR, Co C, 102nd ID (Ozark Division) and was killed January 23, 1945 near Brachelen, Germany.
At the time he completed his "overseas" paperwork, his parents, James Perry Watson and Emily ( or Mary L) Watson, lived in Oak Park, IL.He also had a brother named Clarence H. Watson who lived in Chicago.He may also have had a brother named Paul J. Watson who may have lived in Justice, IL and one time and died in 1983.
I believe they all lived in Proviso (Hillside), Cook County, IL in 1930.
