Thomas E Smith
Now Lauren I am not going to do your full assignment for Mr. Wilsons class. LOL, But if you look at the newspaper article I put on the Find a grave Memorial site you will notice it says that his wife was the former Margery O'Neill. Then go to the register O book archives at

look at the 1939 yearbook and you will see a Margery O'Neill shown as a senior with her photo. I believe in the same yearbook is a photo of Thomas e. Smith. they were classmates.

The reason I said she led me to him was that Thomas Smith was a common name and could be 5 different people in the Omaha area. Margery O'Neill was not as common and sealed the deal for me that this was the right Thomas e. Smith.

I think that Margery remarried after that but I never followed up on that. You can check the marriage records for the late 40s and perhaps track her down. Hope that helps have a great day!

Hi Lauren The written information is posted on the American Battle Monument commission. Two of the photos are from the archives of the Omaha World herald Newspaper. One photo of him I got from his Central high yearbook photo. Hope that helps Loren Bender

Hi Lauren Thank you for the inquiry. I do research on all the Central high school students killed in action.All the information I know of Thomas smith I added to his Find a grave page.I do know his wife was a central high grad also that led me to him. With out the wife to go on i would have never found out much info. since the name Thomas Smith is so common.Have a great day Loren Bender.
