PVT Paul Dotson Killebrew

Paul in 1942
PVT Paul Dotson Killebrew was born 27 Oct 1924 in Stewart County, Tennessee to David Brunson and Cynthia Francis (Parker) Killebrew. His father managed a store and farmed.

Paul may have been working in aircraft manufacture when he was drafted in October 1943.  After basic training he was sent to Europe and on 19 Jun 1944 he was transferred from the replacement depot to G Company 116th Infantry.  PVT Killebrew was killed in action 10 days later on 28 Jun 1944.

PVT Killebrew is buried in the Normandy American Cemetery.  There is a cenotaph for Paul in the Powell Cemetery in Lafayette, Kentucky.
