The Flint (Michigan) Genealogical Society has a plaque honoring a veteran of World War II and would like to find the grave or vault it belongs on. The society got the bronze plaque, which is about 5.5 by 8.5 inches, from the Davison Historical Society, which received it from the Davison VFW.
The plaque reads, "Clyde N. Lehew, Tech 5 US Army, World War II, Feb. 1 1920 Jul. 15 1994, Purple Heart."
Dale Ladd, society president, checked local records and found that Lehew is not buried around here. He could be laid to rest in the Detroit area, where he died, Ladd said.
Someone dropped off the plaque at the VFW, said Rachael Haneline of Davison, who passed it on to the Flint society.
The genealogical society would like to give the plaque to a family member who could see that it is installed as intended.
"That's the goal - to get it back to the guy that it belongs to," said Norma Winters, the society's recording secretary.
Anyone with information on Lehew is asked to contact Ladd at (810) 238-3875.
