I found this newspaper clipping dated June 3rd, 1945 in my grandmothers momentos and thought maybe it could help someone.
"T.G. Haskett died while being held by Japs"
Mrs Dora Petrie, 721 West Tenth Ave received a letter from General MacArthur Friday, informing her that her son, Cpl. Thomas G. Haskett, died while a prisoner of war of the Japanese following the fall of Bataan and Corregidor. The clipping goes onto to say that Corporal Haskett was born April 6, 1915, and was reared in and near Stillwater Oklahoma (Payne county) He entered the army in 1938 in California. He served three years then was sent to his base in Manila. His mother had not heard directly from him since the Japanese invasion of the Phillipine Islands. He has been listed as missing in action. Haskett's father, Jim Haskett makes his home in California. He is also survived by two brothers, Guy Haskett of Vallejo, Calif. and Walter Haskett of Rodeo, Calif., and two sisters, Mrs Roy Edwards and Mrs Eldon Sims, both of Stillwater. There is more and a picture of him in the article. I would like to know if he was family to my grandmother, Janie (Davis) Givens who lived Payne county Oklahoma from 1905 to 1945.
