Help uncover historical, family facts

During World War II, Colonel Frank Palmer Stubbs Jr. was the American advisor to the commanding general of the Chinese 50th Division in the China-Burma-India Theater.

As a descendent of veterans from that Theater, I am trying to assist the grandson of the Chinese commander, General Pan Yu-kun, to locate descendants of Colonel Stubbs so that the grandson can send photos taken of Colonel Stubbs during the War to those descendants.

We know that Colonel Stubbs lived in Natchez before his death in 1960. His wife was Jane Wall Stubbs and they had two children, Mrs. Emily Stubbs Kelly and Frank P. Stubbs III. The latter was married to Cornelia Jordan, but appears to have died early in life.

If anyone has information on descendants of Colonel Stubbs, I would appreciate it if they would contact me at 12454 Dover Court, Saratoga, CA 95070, (408) 996-1913.
