          Hi Charles, you should consider requesting John Seeman's Individual Deceased Personnel File (IDPF or Burial case file). It might contain some information regarding the circumstances of his death or correspondence with next-of-kin. I say 'might' because I think the information in these files varies considerably.  But it is worth a try.  This should be available from the St. Louis Archives.  Hope this is of help to you.  joan
