Please help me find the grave of Private Thomas F. Maguire of Arlington, Massachusetts, who was killed in WW2.
I'm asking this for my wife's grandfather, who knew Maguire, and wants to know where he's buried for a memorial. I've done as many searches of as many databases as I can think of online, and here's what I've found based on the info my wife's grandfather had:
Private Thomas F. Maguire, U.S. Army, 34th Division, 135th Infantry, "F" platoon, serial number 31359856. Born 1925 (date unknown), enlisted February 6, 1943 in Boston, killed in action January 17, 1944 in Italy.
A search of the VA's gravesite locator
comes up empty, as does a search of the American Battle Monuments Commission's WW2 database
. A search of the latter for members of Maguire's battalion shows that all the members who were killed around the same time he was were buried in the Sicily-Rome Cemetery, so it's possible he was, too. But then why isn't he in the database?
Any leads would be appreciated.
