John Kenneth Zahn, Jr. – Privare First Class, United States Army

Date Icon Publish Date

Seeking information on my mother’s cousin who was a Private First Class in the United States Army and killed in France in 1944. My understanding has always been that he was buried at Arlington.

Here is what I know:

  • Name: John Kenneth Zahn, Jr
  • Rank:  PFC, US Army
  • DOD:  9/11/44 (France)
  • Home: 120 Donaldson Avenue
  • Rutherford, New Jersey

Whatever information you might have would be appreciated.  If he is buried at Arlington, I would like to visit the gravesite. If not, I would like to find out where he is buried. I have a copy of an article clipped from an unknown paper (I am assuming it is local paper to Rutherford) which has the heading: “PFC J. K. ZAHN JR. TO BE BURIED IN NATIONAL CEMETERY”. My mother and I visited Arlington Cemetery in the late 1960’s and she told me her cousin was buried there; however, because of time and weather, we did not seek the actual gravesite.

Thank you kindly, Marcia A. Macaulay
