John Kenneth Zahn, Jr.
Privare First Class, United States Army
information on my mother’s cousin who was a Private First Class in the
United States Army and killed in France in 1944. My understanding has always
been that he was buried at Arlington.
Here is what I know:
Whatever information you might have would be appreciated. If he is buried at Arlington, I would like to visit the gravesite. If not, I would like to find out where he is buried. I have a copy of an article clipped from an unknown paper (I am assuming it is local paper to Rutherford) which has the heading: “PFC J. K. ZAHN JR. TO BE BURIED IN NATIONAL CEMETERY”. My mother and I visited Arlington Cemetery in the late 1960’s and she told me her cousin was buried there; however, because of time and weather, we did not seek the actual gravesite.
Thank you kindly, Marcia
