First, James Reitzel/Reitzel James b. 1915
His SSDI record is listed as R.J. Moorefield (I have d. 30 jun 1995, not 1955)
His 2nd wife's obituary names him as Reitzel James Moorefield (Gertrude A. Richardson)
Next, James b. 1918 who died in WWII
I have the following WWII Army enlistment record that might fit:
WWII Army enlistment
James E. Moorefield, Jr. b. 1918 NC residing Panama Canal Zone
enlisted 20 jan 1942 Fort Bragg, NC grammar school; married; 70" 142 lb.
and the following cemetery record that might fit:
James E.J. Moorefield b. unknown d. 1944 nov 12
buried Lorraine American Cemetery France, Lorraine, St. Avoid
Note that the Army enlistment record indicates that James E. Moorefield was married. I
also have this birth record that might fit:
Lawrence Edward Moorefield b. 24 may 1942 Guilford, NC father: James Edward
Can anyone confirm or refute any of this or add any information, such as the mother of
Lawrence Edward Moorefield?
