I am Dr.CRUMPS niece. My Uncle fought in WWII under Pattons Army in the African Campaign. He was a Physician attending to the sick and dying, the wounded and maimed. Captain Crump MD was never the same after returning from the battlefields. He was a very sensitive and compassionate man and an outstanding Physician, his expertise being a grat diagnostician.
In 1958, after a long bout of alcoholism he took his life and I was devastated by this. He was my favorite Uncle and we had a strong bond
I am at present doing my family Genealogy and in this process I am attempting to locate anyone he might have served with during the war.
John Howard CRUMP MD was born in Pittsford N.Y. and lived in Southern California upon his death.
I would love to hear from anyone who knew him personally or anyone with suggestions about how to pursue my quest. Thank you, A loving niece. Mary Alice CRUMP/Christiansen firstname.lastname@example.org
