Note: The death date on both his headstone and military stone are incorrect. His obituary is from 1965, states only three living brothers (three had passed away throughout 1964; if James had passed in January 1964, all six would be listed as living), and the New York State Death Index, 1957-1968, states that he passed on 28 Jan 1965, as does his Social Security file.
