NH soldiers' stories
Gilsum woman tells story of NH's World War II fighting men buried abroad
Fogg, the mother of two, began researching the fate of her uncle, Paul Lavoie of Nashua, in 2009. Though she knew she had an uncle who fought and died during the war, she wanted to know more about him, where he served, and how he died.
Her search revealed that Lavoie was buried in the Henri-Chapelle American Military Cemetery but that wasn't enough information for Fogg, so she enlisted the assistance of a World War II veteran and traveled to Europe to retrace her uncle's steps.
But while she was at a Memorial Day service at the cemetery, she realized she wanted to tell the story of all the New Hampshire men who were buried there.
She amassed photographs and biographies, anecdotes and memories of the fallen men and put them together in her book.
The New Hampshire men buried at the Henri-Chapelle cemetery include Edward W. Allord, Kenneth E. Ames, Dayton D. Atwood, Clifford L. Bartlett, Adrien J. Beliveau, Thomas F. Bresnahan, Thomas H. Burns, Theren C. Cox, William T. Dierauer, Edmond J. Dionne, Robert E. Dugan, Henry J. Dziepak, Charles L. Fleury, John M. Foster, Adrien A. Gamache, David J.W. Gilbert, Peter E. Gregoire, Arthur A. Hamel, Albert A. Harris, Clyde E. Kimball, George H. L'Heureux, Francis T. LaFlamme, Francis E. Larrivee, Paul M. Lavoie, Conrad E. Lefebvre, Glenn M. Lowe Jr., Kenneth P. McDowell, Russell B. McGirr, Cecil A. Merrifield, Carl B. Morris, Arnold Murphy, Omer W. Nadeau, Robert A. Ouellette, Daniel C. Payson, Roland A. Remick, Antonio C. Remillard, Herbert L. Smith, Lawrence Susynski, Fred Trombley and Everett M. Wiggin.
Fogg said she has been asked to write a similar volume about the lives of the men from Vermont who are buried at Henri-Chapelle, and she's already begun her research.
Fogg's book can be found at Amazon.com and other online retailers.
