His middle name was Curtice, and he was born 28 July 1921 in Dimwiddie. I saw his Jewish Serviceman's Welfare Board card, but it didn't have any info.

 

Father was Benjamin Franklin Redman.

 

Here are Harry's parents' Find A Grave memorials:

As of 1920, Benjamin and Nora had two daughters - Ruth and Helen. Benjamin was an electrician on the elctric railway in Namozine (in Dimwiddie County).

 

In 1930, Helen is still at home and Harry is there. Benjamin is a motorman on the electric railway in Petersburg, VA.

 

Working on the daughters . . . .

Ruth Redman - Born 1912

 

Widowed, married a second time on 4 June 1962 in Lunenburg, VA to Lester B. Jones (widower). 

 

Here is his Find A Grave:

She isn't listed there, so she could be there, or could have remarried.

I'd say the best bet would be to try and contact a PEtersburg library and see if you can get an obit for Helen Harris to see the relatives names and try from there. Most likely it would say if her sister was alive or deceased at the time and her kid's names and where they live.

Don't think that will be her. Her maiden name was Harris, so that would mean her husband would have a different name.
