Transcribed from Flowers Left for Clyde Webb:
"Clyde Henry Webb, Jr. was born September 13, 1916. He served with the 93rd Bomber Squadron, 19th Bomber Group, Heavy and is listed as Missing in Action or Buried at Sea. Captain Webb was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, Silver Star with Oak Leaf Cluster, Air Medal and Purple Heart." She then states "Your sacrifice will never be forgotten, Clyde. Rest In Peace."--Jill.

I did some research and this is what I found:

1930 U S Census, most likely conducted in early to mid -June, 1930
Location: Eldorado, Saline County, Illinois
Household composition:
(Male) Parent-- Clyde Webb, age 36, b.1894 in Kentucky
(Female) Parent-- Willard Webb, age 32, b.1898 in Kentucky
Child--- Clyde Webb, age 13, b.1916/7 in Kentucky
Child--- Wilma Webb, age 9, b.1921 in Illinois
Mother of male parent-- Katherine Webb, age 73, b.1857 in Kentucky. Widowed. Her Father's birthplace, England. Her Mother's birthplace, Virginia.

Nov 5th, 2011 As Veteran's Day approaches, let it be known that "Captain Webb was married on June 12th, 1940, after his graduation from West Point to a beautiful young lady by the name of Miss Patricia Braun, & her father was big in Peoria politics because he was an Alderman from the 7th Ward and other things, and she was employed at Methodist Hospital in the Children's Ward as a Supervisor. After her husband's death, Mrs. Webb joined the U S Army as an Officer in the Nurse Corps, and was stationed at Davis-Monthan in Tucson, Arizona. She was active during the War, but it was hard to trace her movements afterwards." This wonderful piece of information is courtesy of David C. and Paula Henderson, Peoria, Illinois *Thank you so much*

1940 US Census became available this year and Clyde Henry Webb was listed at West Point Academy in Highlands Town, Orange Co, New York on Apr 11, 1940. I also, by the way, located his father's World War I Draft Registration card from Webster Co., Kentucky, dated 1917. He was married & had one child, his son, Clyde, Jr. His father was a machinist at the Diamond Coal Co., a mining company in Providence, Webster Co., Kentucky, having light brown hair & blue eyes.

I searched again through Find A Grave's records & was unable to find any burial sites for Patricia Webb in the United States or in the International Wargraves Project. I am certain the above mentioned family is Clyde H. Webb Jr's family as I have not been able to find any other records in the LDS records or Find A Grave records. If anyone has any further information I would appreciate being advised of it via Captain Webb's memorial site or my email address. Thank you and happy searching.
