Jack Marshall Babcock – Mystery Monday
Jack served in WWII and when he died in Florence, Italy, on 16 June 1950, at the age of 27, he was working as an "aircraft mechanic." This was possibly a skill he acquired in the military and continued to pursue. But was he still in the military or was he working in the civilian sector? In addition, the attending physician declared his cause of death was "Bulbar Paralysis." From what little I have researched this condition, it seems to occur in older people and be a progressive disease. I need to find out more. Chasing your family roots is a never–ending quest.
