George Toriello sent me this information from military and census records on Trevor Edgar Jarrard’s service on December 29, 2019. 

Trevor Edgar Jarrard is listed on the Original Wall Unit being misspelled when written on the small pieces of wood by fellow students as ‘Trevor Jarrad’ and had no star next to his name being Killed in Action.  Trevor Edgar Jarrard is listed on the City Hall Plaque, but not on the 1946 Year Book Dedication page.

The certification says ‘New York Cemetery’ that appears to be in a general sense, because address is Hudson Street in Hackensack and that is where Maple Grove Cemetery is located.
