WILLIAM BROCKNER
75 YEARS OLD

ELLWOOD BROCKNER
Killed in Action October 30, 1918

On June 15, 1942 the BERGEN EVENING RECORD reported on Thomas Cameron and Alfred Sanzari missing after the battle of the Coral Sea in May.  While looking at the article recently August 2011 I started to read the article next to the one reporting on Thomas Cameron and Alfred Sanzari an recognized the name Brockner.  After reading the article and confirming the name and address I have come to suspect that this 75 year old
man who was killed when he was struck by an auto
may have been Ellwood Brockner’s Father.
