Sundays Obituary Update: A Picture Of Freddie Harrison

Freddie Harrison 
January 20, 1925--November 9, 1979
Another brother of my grandfather Lemuel Harrison


Back in September of 2011, I posted Freddie Harrison's obituary and mentioned I really didn't know anything more than what was written in it about him. My trip to New Bern and Morhead City in January yielded a picture. The link to that post is here. http://howdidigetheremygenealogyjourney.blogspot.com/2011/09/sundays-obituary-freddie-harrison-my.html

I would like to add that now I know a little bit more about him. I have located his U.S World War II Young Man's Draft Registration Card.

I know he served in the Army and that he is buried at New Bern National Cemetery, in section 3 site 27.

  1. I am curious if you did any research on Frankie's High School? Do they have year books, and if the school is closed does the Library??

  2. The West Street School, I haven't done a lot of research on. I did find an article talking about the start of the school sometime ago. Let me see if I can find the link. I should check the Kellenberger room to see if they have access to old yearbooks or something. Thanks you have given me something to work on. :)
