Private First Class James C. Conklin
Private First Class James C. Conklin was a paratrooper of Headquarters Headquarters Company of the 504th Parachute Field Artillery Battalion, 82nd Airborne Division. He was on board of a C-47 transport plane [tail 42-68720] that was shot down by "friendly fire" on 11 July 1943. No trace was found of the plane nor crew and paratroopers.

Pfc Conklin is listed on the Walls of Missing of the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy. He was lost in or near Sicily in July 1943.

You listed a picture with his name on the cenotaph. I would like to ask your permission to use that picture for my project about the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily, where over 1,200 men and women were buried between July 1943 and April 1947. If his remains would have been found, he would have been buried at Gela.

I have my project available on a DVD, titled "They stayed behind".

Of course you will be credited

Is there a possibility of having someone taking a picture of the gravestone, or, listing the location of the grave in Hillcrest Cemetery?
