PVT Stanley J. Campbell

PVT Stanley J. Campbell was born 10 Jan 1910 in Butler County, Ohio.  In 1920 Stanley and his brother were living in his maternal grandfather's household. In 1930 Stanley was living with an uncle and working in a paper mill.  Stanley was still working in the paper mill in 1940 and had a 1939 income of $1200. 

Stanley was drafted in September 1943.  After training he went overseas and was transferred from the replacement depot to B Company 116th Infantry on 14 Jul 1944.  PVT Campbell was killed in action just 2 days later, on 16 Jul 1944.

PVT Campbell was repatriated in 1948.  His brother Earl signed the interment document, likely because Sylvia had already remarried.  Stanley rests forever in the Millville Cemetery in Millville, Ohio.
