SGT William Edward Ferrell

SGT William Edward Ferrell was born in King George County, Virginia on 4 Sep 1918.  He was drafted in May 1941.  Trained and sent overseas he was assigned to B Company 116th Infantry.  He prepared for and participated in the D-Day landings with that unit and was killed in action on 6 Jun 1944.

We only know that SGT Ferrell is buried in a private (i.e. "family") cemetery likely in King George County.
