35th Quartermaster Division 1945 VE-Day Roster

A funny thing happened with my last post of the photo of John A. Keller. Patrick from over at “The Big Seance” blog has the same last name and we kidded that maybe Mr. Keller may be his cousin. When I answered that Mr. Keller was from Nebraska we found that Patrick’s family has some roots in Nebraska. Although we are not sure if they are related I got to thinking this may be a good time to post the names of the men my father served with. I am attaching my father’s 1945 VE-Day Roster in hope that someone out there may know some of the families of the men who served with my father. For those who have been following Dad’s stories you know that his letters depict the everyday happenings of the Quartermaster and although they tell my father’s story this could be the story of any one of these men.

I have been able to locate quite a few of the families but there are so many more out there that have no idea of my work here. Most of the men are from Nebraska and started in the National Guard about 1940. but they are quite a few who joined the division at a later time and are from all over the United States.

Here is a link to my Find a Grave Memorial of the soldiers I have found there

Please take a minute and see if you may know one of these families. Please pass it on where it may be useful to finding them.  If you have any question feel free to ask and don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the next chapter in Dad’s story!

  1. Fingers crossed you manage to find some more families – wouldn’t that be great.

    • It has been like finding family. Never did I imagine I would have found one, but so far I found a dozen! I am truly blessed!

  2. That’s a really good idea…and I’ll be back tomorrow for the next chapter, that’s for sure :o) Have a wonderful Halloween, hope Pixie enjoys her first Howl-o-ween :o)

  3. I checked the list, but sorry, I can’t help. Good Luck!! This was a great idea.

    • Thanks for trying! I hope this will also honor those who served in more ways than one!

  4. You did a lot of typin’ there lady! Hope your finger are OK

    • lol One of the soldier, Marvin Cain’s son did it for us. He found the original roster in his dad’s stuff. I am in touch with his daughter-in-law and they have been a big help. This roster was key in finding many families. I will take a moment here and thank the Cain family for their help and support!

  5. Thanks for the shout out! My Keller relatives have a facebook reunion page. Many of these relatives I don’t know, but a lot of them are in Nebraska. I’ve shared your post but haven’t been able to get an answer out of anyone on whether they know this John Keller. I’ll keep you posted. 🙂

    • Thanks Patrick! It will be interesting! And if nothing else it got me thinking maybe others who read my post just might know someone! Weirder things have happened!

  6. What a SUPERLATIVE effort, notsofancynancy! Super effort!

  7. You are doing great work here Nancy. 🙂
