(June 22, 1945) - The War department has informed Mr. and Mrs. E.A. Gray of
Mapes avenue of the death of their son Pfc. Robert M. Gray, a prisoner of
war of the Germans, April 19 somewhere in the European area.
On Jan. 8, in action
near Phillipsbourg, France, he was captured and sent as a prisoner of war to
Stalag 1X-B at Bad Orb.
Shortly after that letter was written, he was sent out with a labor battalion and all contact was lost. Nothing has been heard from him since the letter was received.
