This information is from the book, "History of Tillman County (OK), Volume II", a 1978 publication of the Tillman county Historical Society and is used with their consent.

In an effort to include all Tillman County Vets, we add this name, Bobby Wayne Sedgwick. This is based on an article on page 269 of publication. It included in a list of boys killed while in the service of our country, from Hollister, OK.

"Bobby Wayne Sedgwick was born in 1926 and three years later became the adopted son of Elmer and Ethel Boatright Sedgwick. He joined the Navy and died on February 19, 1943, of schrapnel wounds caused by enemy planes strafing his ship in Pearl Harbor. He was buried in Hawaii."
