Hope to locate relatives of or info about John Daniel Yeager or Helen K. Yeager who lived in New Kensington, PA during 1940s. Mr. Yeager joined the Marines during WW II and perished in a plane crash April 1944.

Hello, Robert. Thanks for your reply to my post. Would your family have any information on the family of John Daniel Yeager or his wife, Helen? I'm sure there were/are many Yeagers in that area of Pennsylvania, but I have no other information to help narrow the search.

The reason I'm trying to locate relatives is because most of the families of the men who died in the plane crash have never received much, if any, information about it. The crash occurred in a dense jungle area on a South Pacific Island. The site was recently located and some remains are still there. We have been told that if relatives for all crew members can be found and will submit DNA samples (a simple cheek swab), a recovery team will be sent to the island of Espiritu Santo to gather all remains to be used in possible matching of families.

If this could be done, it would provide closure for families of these men, as well as for the still living members of that USMC squadron. My dad was a member of those "Seahorse Marines." He could talk with any relatives and give them some information about the crash. To date, relatives have been located for five of the seven crew members. We only need to locate relatives for John Daniel Yeager and one other member.

If you have any information or any suggestions of where I might search for family information, it would be greatly appreciated.

Once again, thank you so much for your reply!
