Stanley's sad story

by J N

 

Stanley Brogis's story seems pretty sad, the more I read into it. His brother-in-law paid his way over (if that's actually truthful. I've never heard of that person), and he works 5 years, at least part of the time in a rubber factory, and then gets drafted into the infantry where he's "WIA severely" (wounded in action), and discharged. He gets married sometime between 1920 and 1922, goes to France and gets ill and can't work. He has his dialog with his mother which you showed me -- it's really a sad letter. And by the 1930 census, his wife is deceased, and he's an inmate at an insane asylum -- I'm still trying to find some record of what on earth happened to cause this. Then he dies in August 1930 at age 34.
