Birth: Jan. 18, 1919
Saint Clairsville
Belmont County
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov. 18, 1942
California, USA

United States Army Air Forces aviation Cadet Munn, a native of Belmont County Ohio. Raised on a farm near Pleasant Grove, he was the son of Joseph and Sadie (Barton) Munn. After graduating from Martins Ferry High School, he worked at Fidelity Investment Association in Wheeling. When WWII broke out, he joined the Air Forces on Janaury 27, 1942, following his childhood fascination with airplanes. He was stationed at Mather Field and on November 18, 1942, he was part of a four man crew who left on a training mission. The crew went missing in the California Sierra Nevada Mountains after leaving an airfield in Sacramento, California. The plane's wreckage was found in 1947, but heavy snow pack and cold prevented further recovery. In 2005, more recovery trips were taken to the area and human remains and other items were recovered. His remains were recovered in 2007 and identified in 2008. On May 17, 2008, he was laid to rest in his native Ohio. Ernest has a memorial headstone at Golden Gate National Cemetery. Ernest is survived by his three sisters, Frances Jeanne Pyle, Sarah Elizabeth Zeyer and Lois Shriver.
