The names of two more young men were added over the weekend to Scioto Co's war casualty list of those killed or missing while fighting for their country.
Mrs. Lenora
L. Craycraft of Otway Rt. 1 received a telegram from the war department that her son, Pfc. Leve F. Dillow, 21, was killed while in action December 30 in Italy. Pfc. Dillow was last heard from in a letter written December 4 and received by his mother late in December. At that time he was in the best of health and sent his mother a pay check received by him after his arrival in Italy. He had been employed in a war plant in Springfield prior to entering the service and the check was from his former employers. In his letter he asked his mother to have the check cashed and put the money in a bank for him.

The young soldier was a member of the U.S. Artillery and entered the service December 28, 1942. He was assigned overseas August 9, 1943, being sent first to north Africa and from there to Italy.

He was born at Scioto Furnace December 10, 1922. His father Leve Dillow, Sr. died Feb. 24, 1924. Pfc. Dillow attended Lombardsville Union twp. elementary school and served at a CCC camp in Utah prior to taking the war job in Springfield.

He is survived by his mother, a brother, Henry Dillow of Springfield and three sisters. Mrs. Earl Seaman, and Mrs. Clotine Deemer, both of near Henley, and Mrs. Daisy Craycraft of Wheelersburg.
