Francis Higdon was born in 1922 in Indianapolis. He served in the 82nd Airborne Division, 325th Glider Infantry Regiment. He was killed in action 7th June 1944. He was buried in Washington Park Cemetery in Indianapolis.
I am helping a friend find out about the men of the 325th who are on the memorial for Upottery in Devon (England), which is where the 325th flew from on the D Day operations.
Francis' father was Hezekiah, mother Emma (died 1981), brother Verton 'Harry' (died 1992), and sister Betty Jean who was born 1926 or 1927.
We would love to contact any family members, and if anyone has a photo, that would be fantastic.
