Louis Julius Freudenberg II (1922-1986) was a laborer for Pennsylvania Railroad who served as a private in the United States Army in World War II. (b. April 23, 1922; 63 Concord Avenue, Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, 07306-1617, USA - d. November 28, 1986, 8:10 am; 239 Beacon Avenue, Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, 07306-3539, USA) Military Service Number 32591485 and Social Security Number 156059695.
Louis was born in 1922 to Eugene Freudenberg (1900-1956) aka Gene Freudenberg, and Florence Catherine Skinner (1901-1986).
His siblings include: Eugene Freudenberg II (1925-1945) who died on Luzon in the Phillipines during World War II; Arthur Oscar Freudenberg II (1929- ) who now resides in Florida; and Ralph Kohlman Freudenberg (1937-1995) who fell from a window as an infant and later was burned in a fire.
Jersey City, New Jersey:
Louis attended 1 year of high school in Jersey City according to his military records. In 1930 Louis' parents, Eugene and Florence, were living at 90 Hopkins Avenue in Jersey City with their children and with Mildred Piatt, a neice, who was 10 years old.
Around 1939 Louis married and fathered a child with Margaret Piatt aka Marge Piatt.
The child was called Margie, possibly Marge Freudenberg. Margaret Piatt may have been from the Westbrookville, New York area and must have been related to: Florence Skinner; Mildred Piatt; and Nora Belle Piatt II. Margaret and the baby moved to Washington state, perhaps in the 1950s.
He worked for the Pennsylvania Railroad from September to December 1941 and again in January through March of 1942 and then again in May and then June of 1942. He worked as a laborer.
World War II:
Louis then served as a private in the US Army from November 24, 1942 until December 17, 1943 when he was discharged at Camp Barkeley in Texas. He was awarded the WWII Victory Medal, WWII Service Lapel Button, and the Good Conduct Medal. The family oral tradition has been that he was discharged early for having flat feet. After his discharge from the Army he worked for the Pennsylvania Railroad.
Later in life he became a recluse and stopped cutting his hair.
He died at his home at 239 Beacon Avenue on November 28, 1986. The body was not discovered for several days.
He was buried in the New Jersey Veteran's Memorial Cemetery in North Hanover Township in New Jersey.
