Elwyn was my uncle. I have his name. As I understand, or have been told along the way, that the young kid who shot and killed Sgt Hargrave (a 20 year old kid himself) was a n african american. My grandmother, a devout Baptist Texan woman, made a trip to find the kid's mother. They sat down are cried together, the deep sadness of loosing their children .. she knew what to do.
