This collection contains correspondence from Sgt. David B. Biddle, USA to his wife Kathleen H. Biddle during the Second World War.
Sergeant David Beryl Biddle (8/16/1914 - 12/19/1974) was born in Zion, Illinois to Allison Harry and Lula Mae Biddle. On June 4, 1937 he married a classmate named Kathleen Helen Pratt, an immigrant from Saskatchewan, Canada. His own family had moved from Missouri for the same reasons as the Pratts, to congregate at the Christian Catholic Church, known today as Christ Community Church. A history of Zion, with information on the founder of the city and the church, was provided by the donor: http://www.zionhs.com/history.htm.
