I am looking for information on another North Carolinian that was on a B24 bomb crew that was shot down over France on June 22, 1944. All crewmen were killed including my cousin. I would like all the information that I can get on S/Sgt. Edward T. Sumrell of Grifton, NC. Thank you.

Hi, I know this post is a little late, but Edward T. Sumrell was my great great uncle on my mother's side. He was born in 1924 in Grifton, NC to Joseph Varnie Sumrell and Lottie Skinner Sumrell. He had two other siblings, Jack Sumrell and my great grandmother Hazel Sumrell. He also never married or had children. Although his name was Edward, he mostly went by the name Ellis. As you said he was a member of the bomb crew that was shot down. Afterwards the remains of the crew were burried in a mass grave in Kentucky. Due to his service, he was awarded a purple heart, that my family still has today, passed down from my great grandmother to my mother. I hope I have helped you in your search even though it is a little late.
