His obituary from the September 23, 1943 Republican [Danville, Indiana]:
Harold F. Marting Dies in Plane Crash
Harold F. Marting, former flying officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force, and a student in the Danville schools, was killed Monday afternoon when his plane crashed near Bishopville, North Carolina*, while he was making a business trip alone. The body was taken to Farmland [Indiana] and funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 1 o'clock at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. U. W. [Uriah and Lillian] Marting.
The thrilling experiences of Marting received nationwide attention recently when they were published in The Great American Magazine and he received the Royal Cross given by England, along with several other recognitions. Upon his return home a few months ago, he was married to Miss Margaret DeLong of Muncie, who survives along with the parents, a daughter by a former marriage, and three sisters.
*Obituary indicates location of death is Bishopville, North Carolina. However, his death certificate indicates he died five miles north of Bishopville, which would be Lee County, in Sumter County. I believe the funeral home who handled his body was in Sumter County.
Specifically: Cemetery in Farmland, Indiana; will research.
