1st Lt. William Lee Bell was a P47 fighter pilot who was shot down 16 Nov 1944 near the French/Luxemborgh border while on mission. He ejected, but his chute failed to open.
I am helping to locate descendants of his siblings, in order to return personal effects that have been in the possession of a fellow pilot of his since Lt Bell was KIA. The fellow pilot died in 2004, and his former wife has asked if relatives could be located.
Lt. Bell was born 7 Dec 1921 in Fresno, CA. He enlisted in the Army 31 Jul 1942 in Los Angeles, CA. His parents were Elmer L and Florence E Bell. He had a brother, listed below:
George F. Bell, born 26 Jul 1920, California, died 23 Feb 1989, last know residence Spokane, Washington, USA, per SSDI.
Could someone please look up an obituary to see if George had any family listed as surviving him. Thank You
