NOTICE ABOUT CARROLLS CORNER: I have been doing genealogy research for over 40 years & I put blood, sweat, tears, heart & soul into my work, paid research expenses myself & have been generously sharing my research on CarrollsCorner since 1998 at no charge to the public.  My husband & I are now elderly & retired with increasing expenses & decreased income which = too much month left at the end of the money.  It is becoming more & more difficult to come up with the $$ to pay for the web space for this site so I am now requesting donations.  If you use & enjoy CarrollsCorner please send a donation to help keep it on-line.   *Due to overwhelming requests for additional information, research & advice I can no longer respond unless I receive a donation *  Thank you.

CARNAGE AT THE CROSSROADS
The Tragic Story Of Sgt. Cecil J. Cash

This incident was considered to be the worst WAR CRIME committed against American soldiers in the western European Theatre of WWII.  Much has been written & published about this event but only a very few authors have included mention of my relative.  So I have written his story giving him the full recognition he deserves.  This story provides a detailed account of T/4 Sgt.Cecil J.Cash's tragic demise when he along with 80+ other American soldiers were brutally murdered by Nazis on the second day of the Battle of the Bulge.  This is the TRUE story of  Sgt. Cash of the 197th Anti-Aircraft Artillery, Automatic Weapons Battalion.  Sgt. Cash of St. Francois County, Missouri, USA, is my posthumous step-father by way of being the first husband of my mother Pearl Martin Cash Ziock Foree of Washington County, Missouri.   Sgt. Cash's military history begins at Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis & covers his two year tour of duty through five states, two continents, & six countries.  The story includes excerpts from Sgt. Cash's personal correspondence with his wife as he forges his way through France, Belgium & Luxembourg with thousands of other American soldiers liberating Europe from Hitler's evil Nazi Regime & bringing an end to the Holocaust & the Third Reich.  Published in the "Independent Journal"  July - December 2013;  Also featured on "Fatal Crossroads";  "Baugnez44 Historical Center"  (Sept. 2013);  "War History On Line" (Sept. 2013);
