Delia is buried in the Chase Cemetery, in Lake county, Michigan, beside her first husband Monroe and her two sons.
Later as I started researching my family, and history in general, Paul became a focus point. Was he really part of the D-Day invasion? Did he die in the Battle of the Bulge? I was coming up blank on records. Although his mother and stepfather lived in nearby Muskegon, Michigan, I could find no obituaries or records of him in the newspaper archives there.
Finally, one of those serendipitous discoveries of a distance cousin helped solve the mystery.
Paul had so admired Great Grandpa Roy that he had taken his last name when he enlisted, and was no longer Paul Davis, but Paul Davis Gilbert.
So I still don't know if he was on the shores at D-Day or now. But at least I know enough to try both names.
