Eugene Freudenberg II (1925-1945) aka Eugene Freudenberg, Jr. aka Eugen J. Freudenberg; US Army, Killed in Action in World War II (b. June 29, 1925, Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, USA - d. January 24, 1945, Luzon, Philippines) Military Service Number 42014477.
The "J" as his middle name in his World War II record appears to be a truncation of "Jr.", there is no record of a middle name for him. He also appears as "Eugen Freudenberg" again through a truncation in his military records.
Eugene was the son of Eugene Freudenberg I (1900-1956) aka Gene Freudenberg and Florence Catherine Skinner (1901-1986).
His siblings include: Louis Julius Freudenberg II (1922-1986) who had a child with Mildred Piatt (1918-?); Arthur Oscar Freudenberg II (1929- ) who married Helena R. Bonowicz (1919-1988); and Ralph Kohlman Freudenberg (1937-1995) who fell from a window as an infant and landed on a wrought iron fence and was later burned in a fire.
World War II:
Eugene enlisted as a Private in the US Army on September 17, 1943 from Newark, New Jersey. He had completed 1 year of high school and wasn't employed. The New York Times listed his death in a supplement published on March 20, 1945 on page 14. Arthur Oscar Freudenberg II (1929- ) has Eugene's purple heart and the flag used at his funeral, and may have his military photograph.
Eugene was buried at the Santa Barbara Number 1 Cemetery in the Philippines and was disinterred on August 30, 1948. His skeletal remains were re-interred at Beverly National Cemetery in New Jersey on February 11, 1949. They initially used a Star of David on his plot. Florence went to visit the cemetery on October 24, 1949 and asked that it be replaced with a Latin Cross.
