William is my 2nd cousin once removed (2C1R)  (David Charles Procuniar), he served in WW II as a Communication Navigator USAF (Lieutenant), in 1992 he was living in Darien, Connecticut (North East of Stamford).  William sent me a letter saying is wife (Eve) was of Royalty, related to King Ludwig I of Bavaria; he also said that when he married Eva it was stated on the licence that she was from Ceklis, Czechoslovakia (1959)

William's family brought his body back to Dayton, Ohio so he could be buried in Woodland Cemetery next to his parents graves.  His wife told me that this was William's last wish to be buried with his parents.  After Williams death his wife Eva sent me a letter with some family history for the Evans lineage which I received Sept 3, 2002.
