* They gave their lives.




  • I was given access to a document published in the Corsicana Daily Sun in 1943 concerning the Corsicana Cotton Mill employees who were serving in the armed forces.   Some had already been killed and another was known to be a prisoner.  The document I copied is in the form of a poster and is owned by Mrs. Thelma Young of Corsicana.  She is the widow of Aubrey Lee Young who is on the list.  John C.
