We are trying to find anyone that could provide any information about my wife's great uncle Willie Lane (no middle initial) who was in the 11th Armored Division and died March 5, 1945 near Remagen, Germany. He was from Mt. Olive, Wayne County, NC and was 23 years old when he was KIA.

Willie Lane was buried in Mt. Olive, NC and his headstone lists the following: SGT MP PLAT, 11th Armored Division. I assume his body was returned after the war and we are doing research now to locate a possible obituary . He was never married and except for 3 or 4 nieces and great nieces like my wife everyone has died. His last sibling, his sister, passed some years ago. My wife's mother is close to 80 and remembers him in uniform when she was a little girl. She is his oldest remaining relative still living. She has a younger sister who was named Willie for him. Due to health and age she and her sister would like to find any information anyone might have on SGT Willie Lane. He enlisted at Ft. Bragg, NC in August 1940. NC state records show him as KIA and with a rank of PVT. We have not yet requested any possible records from the National Personnel Records Center.

We would appreciate any help or contact help who knew him or contacts. Thanks
