I am searching for information about a man thought to have died in a plane crash in July (around the 23rd) 1950. He had just taken off from the Clinton-Sherman field and was identified by a SS card he had on him. I found a news piece in the Oklahoma City paper but no follow up.I have been unable to locate where he was buried.
His name was Melvin Marion Priest, the article said he was working for a road construction company doing a job in Elk City, Ok and was living in Vian, Oklahoma. He was from Barry Co., Missouri.
I have been unable to locate where he was buried using various online sources.
If someone has access to the local Clinton and Washita Co. papers for the time period of July-August 1950 and could see if there was a followup article or one that gave some news as to where he was interred, please contact me.
