In Reply to: LOOKING FOR :John Patrick Devlin,N.Y or any info on my roots by Justin John Devlin of 1442

Hi. I'm not related to this family. I found a tiny bit of info that might be about Raymond at this website of old NY newspapers: http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html

Long Island City NY Star Journal 1959 - 9653.pdf
4 Executive Officers Assigned to Totten - The U.S. Army Air Defense Command announced today the assignment of four new executive officers to its 1st Region headquarters at Fort Totten in Bayside... Other 1st region appointments include.. Raymond P. Devlin, supply procurement officer. Devlin lives at 98-05 63rd road, Rego Park...

I found a military death record that might be your grandfather's:

U.S. Veterans Gravesites, ca.1775-2006 about Raymond P Devlin
Name:        Raymond P Devlin
Service Info.:        LT COL US ARMY WORLD WAR II, KOREA
Birth Date:        16 Aug 1912
Death Date:        3 Dec 2002
Service Start Date:        28 Jan 1943
Interment Date:        6 Dec 2002
Cemetery:        Calverton National Cemetery
Cemetery Address:        210 Princeton Boulevard Rt 25 Calverton, NY 11933
Buried At:        Section 12 Site 1366

This would be an address for him:

U.S. Public Records Index, Volume 1 about Raymond P Devlin
Name:        Raymond P Devlin
Birth Date:        16 Aug 1912
Address:        408 Greenbelt Pkwy, Holtsville, NY, 11742-2231 (1993)

Can't say for sure it's yours. There was over a dozen Raymond Devlin's in the military records, but only one Raymond P. Devlin.

This might be an enlistment record for him:

U.S. World War II Army Enlistment Records, 1938-1946 about Raymond P Devlin Jr

This is just a shot in the dark. Without dates to work with, it's difficult for me to say that this is your grandfather. Annie
