Author looking for family of Ralph Jones

February 8, 2012
Westfield Republican

Dear Editor,

My name is Manuel F. van Eyck and I have been for many years investigating American aircraft shot down over the occupied Czechoslovakia during the World War II. One of the pilot lost was: 2ndLt Ralph I. Jones killed in the air combat on August 28, 1944, 308th Fighter Squadron, 31st Fighter Group

His family was originally from Conneautville, Pa., as of 1944, but later his parents moved to Westfield, N.Y. Their name is:

Father Henry Fisher Jones

Mother Frances E. Jones

East Main Road

Westfield, New York

Perhaps if you could print my request someone might knows or have information or photograph of above killed pilot.

My address is

Manuel Frank van Eyck


Soubezna 74

Czech Republic

Most certainly they are not alive, but perhaps there is relative of theirs in that area. I am seeking photograph of 2nd Lt Ralph I. Jones to include in my publication.

I thank you for any information.


M.F. van Eyck
