I'm trying to find the family of S/Sgt. Gerrald E. Crotty, ASN: 19181308, 564th Bomber Squadron, 389th Bomber Group, Heavy. S/Sgt. Gerrald E. Crotty was KIA on March 24, 1945.
S/Sgt. Crotty was born November 10, 1922. He was the youngest of four children. The 1930 census shows two brothers and two sisters, John D. Crotty (born 1911), Genevieve H. Crotty (born 1913), Robert E. Crotty (born 1916) and Margaret D. Crotty (born 1918). His father was Thomas Crotty (born 1879) and his mother Kate Crotty (nee Gallagher, born 1878).
Gerrald Crotty's hometown was Santa Paula, CA.
S/Sgt. Gerrald E. Crotty is buried at the Netherlands American Cemetery and his grave is adopted. The adoptive family would like to get in touch with the Crotty family.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone who can help us.
