Name: PEARSON MERLE D.
Branch of Service: Marines
Home of Record (county): HUMBOLDT
Date of casualty: 04 APR 1953
Category of casualty: Killed in Action
It is unknown to me (Jerry Ferrin) why Merle D. Pearson is listed as a Comanche County, Kansas, Korean War Casualty on the Memorial Shaft in Crown Hill Cemetery. He probably lived in the county at one time. My guess is that he was the son of Rev. Everett Merle Pearson.
