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

Major Richard B. Paddock, Son of Late General, 
Was Stationed Here Until 1916

  Major Richard B. Paddock of the regular army, 
who is reported slightly wounded in yesterday's 
casualty list, is a nephew of General Pershing 
and a West Pointer of the class of 1914. Major 
Paddock, who is in the Signal Corps. is a 
native of Wyoming and is 27 years old. On June 
15, 1914, three days after his graduation from 
West Point, he married Miss Anne Cunningham, a 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Cunningham of 
46 Hamilton Place, this city. Mrs. Paddock, 
accompanied by her little son, Richard B.
Paddock, Jr., is now on her way to New York 
from California. She was notified by telegraph 
yesterday that her husband had been wounded, 
but was in no danger.

  Major Paddock is the son of the late Brig. 
Gen. Paddock, who was one of the American 
officers killed in the advance on Peking in the 
Boxer uprising of 1900.  His mother was a 
sister of General Pershing. She died in the 
early boyhood of Major Paddock, who was then 
taken charge of and reared by Miss May 
Pershing of Lincoln, Neb., General Pershing's 
sister. Miss Pershing is caring for little 
Warren Pershing, the only son of the American 
Commander in Chief.

  After his graduation from West Point, Major 
Paddock, then a Lieutenant or artillery, was 
on duty in New York, and until 1916 was in 
charge of the Police Reserve Training Camp on 
Staten Island. When General Pershing was 
ordered to command the punitive expedition 
into Mexico in 1916, the Lieutenant was 
relieved of that duty and went to the border 
to serve under his uncle. General Pershing 
later succeeded to the command of the Southern 
Department, with headquarters in San Antonio: 
Major and Mrs. Paddock took a house in that 
city and General Pershing made his home with 
them.  

  The casualty list contains the names of four 
enlisted men from New York: Rudolph Sima, 
reported killed, 1,382 Avenue A; Joseph V. 
Rogers, dead of wounds, 1,513 Gravesend Avenue, 
Brooklyn; John Kuniski, severely wounded, 153 
Sheffield Avenue, Brooklyn, and Herbert A. 
Schwartz, slightly wounded, 148 West Ninety-
first street, New York.  Private Rogers was a 
brother of Mrs. Ethel Becker ,of 244 Gravesend 
Avenue, Brooklyn. She said last night that she 
did not know her brother was in the army until 
she received word of his death from Washington. 
She last saw him on Thanksgiving Day of 1916, 
she said, and had not heard from him since. 
He was 19 years old.

  "If Joe had to die," said Mrs. Becker, "I am 
glad he went gloriously fighting for his country."

  It was pointed out yesterday that recent 
casualty lists seemed to indicate that the Sunset 
Division of the National Guard army, the division 
which followed the Rainbow to Europe, was now in 
action. The troops in this division, as its name 
indicates, are from the Middle and Far West.

  Private Rudolph Sima, who is reported killed in 
action, was a Bohemian, 23 years old, who came to 
the United years ago. He enlisted in the regular 
army within a week after Congress declared war. 
His aged parents still live in Bohemia.  He 
boarded before he entered the army with Mrs. Mary 
Kabatnik of 1,382 Avenue A.

  "Although he had only been in the country three 
years when war was declared," said Mrs. Kabatnik, 
"he was the first boy in this neighborhood to 
volunteer for the defense of the country. He was 
a true son of Bohemia, who hated Austria and loved 
America."

  Private John Kuniska, reported slightly wounded, 
is a Pole who came to this country four years ago. 
He enlisted in the regular army on Decoration Day of 
last year with his chum, John Federicz, another Pole 
with whom he made his home at 153 Sheffield Avenue, 
Brooklyn.  Kuniska is 23 years old.
