PRIVATE EDWARD A. NOSBAUM, severely wounded, 
is a machine gunner with Pershing's army. 
His mother, Mrs. Christina Nosbaum, lives 
at 1834 North Talman avenue.

LIEUT. LYMAN BLAIR HOOPS of the United 
states navy, who died of pneumonia, was a 
grandson of Mrs. H. O. Hoops of Chicago and 
a son of Thomas J. Hoops of Middleton, Conn. 
He was graduated from Annapolis less than 
two years ago.

Second Lieutenant Edmund A. Corby, U.S.A., reported severely
wounded in yesterday's casualty list from General Pershing,
is a New Yorker and a graduate of the 1917 Officer's Training
Camp at Plattsburg.  He is a son of A. C. Corby of 215 West
101st Street, who is Cashier of the Metropolitan Bank at
Fourth Avenue and Twenty-third Street.  Lieutenant Corby is a
Princeton man, 24 years old.  He was commissioned last August
and was with the first contingent of Plattsburgers ordered to
France for assignment as junior officers to regular army units.
He is in the 8th Infantry.  A War Department telegram to his
parents stated he was wounded on May 28.

Private Charles Stahl, reported severely wounded is a son of
Mrs. Lena Stahl of 32 West Ninety-eighth Street.  He is in the
28th Infantry.  Private Stahl was with General Pershing in
Mexico and was transferred from the 37th to the 28th Infantry
when the latter regiment was ordered to France last year.  He
is 25 years old and is of German descent.
"All I wish to say," said Mrs. Stahl, his mother, yesterday,
"is that I wish I had more sons to give to the United States
Army."

William Patrick Griffin, 22 years old, listed as severely
wounded, lives at 78 Bay Twentieth Street, Bath Beach, with
his uncle, John Griffin.  He was a Brooklyn Rapid Transit
guard when he was called in the draft last October.  He was
born in Ireland, and came to the United States four years 
ago.   Griffin left for overseas service last April and was
wounded May 24.

Private William Glynn of Huntington, L.I., was killed in the
accidental explosion of a trench bomb on June 3.  He was a 
member of the 305th Infantry of the Camp Upton Division.

Also of the 305th Infantry was Private Frederick Rouff, who
was killed at the same time as Glynn.  Rouff was a graduate
of Public School 70 in Brooklyn, and was a brother of Edwin
V. Rouff of 193 Ralph Avenue, Brooklyn.

The first news of the death in France on May 17 of Private
Michael W. Sullivan of 133 Monroe Street, Passaic, was re-
ceived yesterday by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Sullivan,
in a letter from Chaplain Thomas S. Cline of the 19th
Engineers.  The Sullivans had received no notification from
the War Department, and their son's name had not been printed
in any casualty list.   The first paragraph of the letter was:
"You have no doubt been officially notified of the death of
your son, William.  I am sending you some of the particulars
regarding his last minutes and his burial which will, I
trust, prove a comfort to you."
Chaplain Cline said Sullivan died from hemorrhages due to
illness in the American base hospital at Nevers.  He inclosed
an eloquent address delivered over the grave by M. I'Abbe
Chargeboeuf, Knights of Columbus chaplain.  The American
chaplain's letter said in part:
"Your son had been with the Nineteenth Engineers only a few
days when he was sent to the hospital.  He received the best
care from doctors and nurses.  He was attended during his
last days by a priest of the Catholic Church and died
peacefully on May 17.
"His burial took place on Whitsunday, May 19, at 5 P.M.  The
procession started from the American Base Hospital No. 28, 
and marched to St. Joseph's Chapel.  Here evening service was
sung and the body was blessed.  Mass had been said for him in
the morning in the presence of a number of his comrades.
After the service the procession moved to the cemetery, where
your son was interred with full military honors."
Sullivan was 24 years old.  He was drafted and sent to Camp
Dix last September, and was one of 600 men selected to join
the Nineteenth Engineers, already in France.   He sailed in
March.  His mother a few days ago received from him a "Mother's
Day" letter, written on May 12.  He did not mention his illness
to her, although he had then been in the hospital some time.

A cablegram received in New York yesterday announced the death
in action, on June 3, of Major Herbert Musgrave, D.S.O., of the
Royal Engineers of the British Army.  Major Musgrave, who was
42 years old, was a son of the late Sir Anthony and Lady
Lucinda Jeanne Field Musgrave.  Lady Musgrave was a daughter
of the late David Dudley Field of this city.   Major Musgrave
had been an officer in the British Army for twenty-two years.
His home was in Sussex.
