Carbon Cliff Seeks Tribute To Hometown W.W.II Vets

By Brian Buehler (Staff writer - newspaper)

Carbon Cliff native Delbert Samuelson was only 19 when he was killed in Italy during World War II. Now the Village is trying to ensure that Mr. Samuelson and other WWII veterans will be remembered, and not just in Carbon Cliff.

The Village is asking anyone with ties to its WWII veterans to register them for the Registry of Remembrances, part of the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.

During the war, Carbon Cliff, population then 600, sent 52 of its own off to fight, three never returned.  This month the Village sent a donation of $545 to the National World War II Memorial, $5 for each resident served and $100 for each who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Of the three who were killed, Herman Boxstall, Mr. Samuelson and Wayne Walker, the history of only one is known.

Mr. Samuelson was just 19 when he was killed in Italy in October 1943, said his older sister Delores Fray of Silvis. He was an Army infantryman and trained at Camp Wheeler, Ga. before going overseas. Pfc. Samuelson was killed three months after leaving Camp Wheeler, his sister said. His body lies in a military cemetery in Italy.

Carbon Cliff’s WWII veterans are recognized in the Village.  A sign next to the Village Hall lists their names.  The Village used the names form the sign in calculating its donation for the memorial, said Mayor Ken Williams.  The sign was put up shortly after the war and was refurbished about 15 years ago.

The Village began promoting the Registry of Remembrances through informal senior groups that meet for a monthly pot luck at the Village Hall, said Mayor Williams. Mrs. Fray, who moved from Carbon Cliff to Silvis 18 years ago, is still a member of the group.

The Registry of Remembrances is meant for anyone who helped with the war effort. Carbon Cliff residents who wish to have a friend or loved one included in the registry can pick up a form at the Village Hall.

Committee formed to save Civil War soldier
POSTED 4:06 PM, FEBRUARY 20, 2015, BY CHRIS MINOR

Efforts to restore a run-down Civil War monument are moving ahead, with the Village of Carbon Cliff becoming the first big donor.  “Just this week on Tuesday, I spoke to the Village President and he and Village Board have donated $5,000 to this project,” said Rock Island County Sheriff's Lt. Ron Erickson on Friday, February 20.  Erickson is enlisting the help of the Rock Island County Historical Society and the Civil War Roundtable-Quad Cities Chapter to help spread awareness about the project and with fundraising.

“I would like to challenge all municipalities, to step up, and help respect this great piece of history,” Lt. Erickson said.

The 1,300-pound marble statue almost toppled over from its pedestal outside the Rock Island County Courthouse last year.  The soldier's face is worn, his rifle broken, and the names of 450 Civil War veterans from Rock Island County, barely visible anymore.  The statue was created by Chicago sculptor Leonard Volk in 1869, an artist notable for making one of only two life masks of Abraham Lincoln.

“My motivation is to give back to the community to preserve the memories of the people who fought in the Civil War so future generations can enjoy this,” said Lt. Erickson.

The next informational meeting open to the public is set for Wednesday, February 25th at 3 p.m. at the downtown branch of the Rock Island County Library.

To make a tax-deductible donation, make checks payable to the Rock Island County Historical Society.
