PFC James Edward Aday
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 11, 1925
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Jan. 20, 1945, Germany

1930 & 1940 Census resided in Pottawatomie Co., MO.

I believe the parents returned to Missouri during the war years. Perhaps the reason he and his infant brother were both buried in the Goodhope Cemetery.

BODIES OF 26 WAR DEAD BEING RETURNED

REMAINS WERE VETERANS KILLED IN EUROPEAN THEATERS DURING WORLD WAR II

Bodies of 2,918 Americans who lost their lives during World War II, including 26 from the Joplin district, are being returned to the United States from Europe aboard the United States army transport Malta Victory, the department of the army announced yesterday.

Those being brought back to this country originally were interred in temporary military cemeteries in Northern France, Holland and Luxembourg.

Following is a list of bodies being returned, with the next of kin also named:

MISSOURI

Pfc. James E. Aday, army; Lois O. Aday, Ava, route 3.

Thank you,
