Query: WW2 Uniform Item, St. Joseph County


             I am a French historian from Normandy. Sharon Whetstone from Old Jail Museum gave me your address.

            I found recently a WW2 military trouser with a name and a serial number written on : "Gilmer" It was Howard R Gilmer, coming from St Joseph County, Indiana. I’ve seen you have some Gilmer on your city... Maybe some of his descendants ?

            Could you help me to contact them or to have more information about this man ?

Thank you.

Mathieu Delamotte.

  1. What a wonderful discovery. Hopefully, there are family members still in the area.
