Thank you for your help family the names would be: Kenneth Birdsill/Birdsall His father William Birdsill (New Jersey) His Mother Martha Cawley (England) they were from Patterson in 1905 and possibly later. In the 70's I recall Greenwood Lake, not too far from Paterson. any/all help will be appreciated email is fine too. My grandmother was Clara Dolloway who died at the age of 35 from complications of diabetes. My mother was Joyce Dolloway Birdsall. I believe she had a brother named Kelly.
I have his birth certificate and the spelling of the last name is different than the military records. I have a letter from the President of the United States (can't recall which one right now) but his military records are sealed. I do know that at the time of his death he recieved full death benefits. Meaning his entire funeral was paid for by the military and my mother recieved a large sum of money from them. That is all I know other than he was missing several fingers from both hands. Perhaps if someone else has any information they might share? Please Hope
