William Clayton Webb

I would like permission to post your photo of William Clayton Webb's memorial in Arlington Cemetery [49335262] on the memorial created for him by his parents in Seneca, SC (#49335262). That marker references his burial in Arlington Cemetery [OR you could post it] and his brother's death at sea. Thanks. Frank

Merl B. Steimer

Thank you for transferring Merl, the work you do is very much appreciated. Our family didn't lose many in the war but most of them served, including my four older brothers all at the same time.

Thanks again,

Marine Lieutenant Dies on Iwo Jima

Lieutenant Merl B. Steimer, 24, one of the city’s outstanding student athletes and soldiers died February 24 on Iwo Jima, a telegram to his family said this week. The message from A. A. Vandegrift, lieutenant general and commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, informed the family that the young officer died in the midst of the battle to wrest the small island from the Japs, only 750 miles from Nippon.

Husband of Mrs. Pola Carson Steimer, of Swannanoa, North Carolina, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward A. Steimer, 614 West Grant avenue, he was born in Duquesne, graduated from Duquesne High School where he starred in football. Lieutenant Steimer attended Appalachian State College, where he starred on the gridiron. He was listed in “Who’s Who in College” a book published on prominent students in different schools of the country, was elected president of the student body of the senior class, and of the “A” club, only society at the college.He spent the last year at Franklin and Marshall College in Pennsylvania, where he was transferred by the Marines. While in Duquesne, he played for two independent grid teams.

The officer trained at Parris Island, New River and Quantico, and sent to California, where he met his brother, Lieutenant Joseph Steimer, prior to shipping out to the Pacific. He enlisted March 21, 1942, his birthday, and went overseas only a few months ago, his family said. His father, plumbing and building inspector and city assessor, said that the young marine had trained the boys whom he led onto the island. He was with the Fourth Marine Division.

Surviving are four brothers in the service, Lieutenant Joseph, now at Stockton, Cal.; Glenn, motor machinist’s mate second class, in the Pacific; Gene [sic Jean], motor machinist’s mate, third class, in England; and Private Orvis, with the Air Corps at Sheppard Field, Texas. (published in the Duquesne Times, March 16, 1945, p 1)

RE: Merl B Steimer
I can't seem to be able to copy it into a reply email via findagrave. It is a jpg. Can you tell me how to do that? If you send me an email I can send it back to you that way.
