Charles W Priebe
« on: Tuesday 11 July 17 13:25 BST (UK) »
Hi, I'm hoping that someone will be able to help me search for information on Charles W Priebe.  According to his WW2 army enlistment he was born in 1911 in Michigan.  I believe that he spent the war in England, whilst there he married Margaret Fisher and they had a son.
His grandson has asked me to help him discover more about Charles but I am struggling a bit.  I have his army number but not his social security number so I believe that we can't apply for his war records.  I have looked up the US census, but I can't pinpoint which Charles Priebe is him.  Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
Thanks for any help.

The marriage certificate of Charles to Margaret should show his parents - have you got that  ???

Did Charles return to the USA  ???

Thanks for your great help, Sandra.  You have helped us enormously.  I did have to the marriage certificate but I passed it on to his family here without writing down the details , foolish I know.
I will be able to look at the census records now that I have more information.
Charles did return to the States and tried three times to get his wife and son to join him
