I saw a memorial you placed for John L. Dorton 386th BG 554 Squadron. B=26 marauders. KIA 2-10-44 with all aboard except Pilot 1st Lt. Robert B. Spencer POW. I noticed you referred to him as Uncle Lars. I would suppose that refers to his middle initial?
My Uncle , Robert B. Spencer was the pilot of the plane that was lost. Sgt. Dorton was a waist gunner on this crew, also called an armorer. From what I can find out he was a great shot. He had a couple confirmed kills of German FW-190 Focke Wulf fighters. He is a REAL hero.

They have been transferred to you.
Hello there. I'll be making a trip to Woodland again after I hit the library. I found Charles Floyd listed to be there, just need to find the area. I also listed your grandfather Find A Grave Memorial# 105721872 and attatched his death certificate. I also linked Arlie Patterson Rowe, which from all the info I found online and from other relations, is that she changed her name to Helen when she married a man by the name of Trujillo. Interesting.. someone also has multiple pictures of the two of them, even with 2 children all over ancestry.com. Hope you can get to see them if you haven't already. Carrie

Hi Deana, glad you found the memorial for Soloman Rowe. He is my husbands 1st cousin 4x removed. I ran across his grave by accident. We've been researching the Rowes in Lawrence Co for a while & I try to list any I find. I will be going back to the local library in a few weeks & will look for Charles Floyd for you. I'm compiling a list, as it is a large cemetery and there are lots of Rowe's.
So far I've found Solomons father, at least 1 sister & 2 of his brothers ended up this way. And they all had large families.
