I'm doing some research for an elderly lady in England who is trying
to contact the eldest daughter of 1st Lieutenant (maybe promoted to Captain) Harry Lee Roy who died 30th January 1967 in an air accident near Redwood City in San Francisco Bay (NTSB Report here). The lady has a beautiful letter written at the time of his daughter Leigh Ellen's birth (9th July 1949) which she would like to pass on. Leigh Ellen's mother is Mildred and her sisters are Regina Ann and Tammy.
1st Lieutenant Roy, whose home town was Wellington, TX, was stationed in England during WWII (with 98th Squadron, 440th Troop Carrier G.P.A.P.O-133, US Army, Exeter Airport, Devon) and the two families struck up a long friendship until his untimely death in 1967 in an air accident at which point he was a psychiatrist in private practice in Houston, TX. Some of this information was found on the very useful website of The 440th Troop Carrier Group History Project.
