First Sergeant Phillip A. Grubbs
aka First Sergeant Pinkney Aston Grubbs*
U. S. Army World War II
Ser. # 6958616

 

1ST SGT Phillip Asbon Grubbs, [January 26, 1916 June 3, 1976], U.S. Army, and a WWII veteran, was born to Pinkney Aston Grubbs [August 3, 1890 - February 4, 1936] and Sadie (White) Grubbs [May 25, 1895 Sep 26, 1934] at Devers, Liberty County, Texas.  His death occurred at Webster, Harris County, Texas and he is survived by his wife Mrs. Loyce V. Grubbs. He was erroneously listed as a death occurring as a result of Non-Battle circumstances by the War Department in 1946, and Matagorda County was given as his hometown.  It is felt the War Department may have mixed up Baytown with Bay City thus creating the error in his hometown and compounding their mistake.  No record of any type has been located to associate him with Matagorda County, Texas. He is buried at Houston National Cemetery, 10410 Veterans Memorial Drive, Houston, Texas in Section B Site 2298.

 

*His name is given as Pinkney A. Grubbs in the 1920 and 1930 Federal Census.
