Who's Who

Col. ARTHUR JOSEPH LEHMAN

 


Arthur Joseph Lehman was born in Montgomery County, lived, educated here and then went out to see the world.

Born November 19, 1898 in Montgomery County, he grew up in a family of 11 children born to John Wesley and Marena Kersey Lehman. He attended Darlington school where as most boys of his time, he was active in sports. He is pictured here on the DHS basketball team and when he was a young boy, reading - love it! -- I want to so sincerely thank Joyce Bever for not only sharing this story but for honoring her wonderful uncle.

On his WWI draft registration, he was listed as being tall, slender, having blue eyes and light brown hair. At that time, he was teaching school in Franklin Township with WA Burgin, Trustee, as his boss. He graduated from Wabash College in 1921, and this is possibly him during his Wabash yeare.- found this one on Ancestry, which may or may not be Joyce's picture. The other one IS his 1921 graduation picture also found on Ancestry but sure it is from Joyce as she has this nifty way of adding text to her pictures - wish I knew how to do that - kbz

Tthen it was off to the Army. In 1943, he was a flight instructor at Kellogg Field in Battle Creek, Michigan where he was living with his wife and four children. He left for WWII from there, and commanded the 7th Service group, Army Air Force when he died.

========================

Here is a pic of him with the flyboys, a tribute to him via friends at his death, along with a pic of him in his make-shift home away from home and plane. Thanks again, Joyce !!

 

*** Although this tombstone in Greenlawn Cemetery, Darlington, marks his part in Montgomery County history, he is actually buried in Finschaven, New Guinea.

RIP COLONEL
