Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 22, 1922, USA
Death: Sep. 8, 1986
Marion
Grant County
Indiana, USA

Earl Mitchener fought in WWII and was a POW. He lived and worked in Fairmount, Indiana for several years. He worked at the Haisley Grain Elavator on Elm Street.

The information below is from the Grant County Health Department Vital Records that I found online. I believe that their are some errors in this record.

1st error his last names is miss spelled. It's not Mitchner its Mitchener.

2nd error is his mother was not Lewis Eula Mitchner. Earl and his brother Merl was the oldest of 5 kids but they had a different mother than the younger three. The younger three's mother was Eula W. (Lewis) Mitchener.
Merl & Earl's mother was: Vara Irene Hollopeter b. 1898 d. ? Lotus William Mitchener was their dad and he divorced Vara and married Eula Lewis.
