Oliver B Butler - Killed in World War II South Pacific

I am a retired American residing in the Philippines. A couple weeks ago my wife and I visited the Manila American Cemetery. The cemetery includes graves of American soldiers killed in the Philippines, Solomons, New Guinea and
other East Indies Islands during World War ll. I wandered into the area of the gravesites and wondered how many of the soldiers ever had family visitors to their graves. I took a few digital photographs and was hoping I could united them with their families at no cost. One of the graves I have found is that of an Oliver B. Butler of Ohio. He was a SSGT in the United States Army serving in the 124th Infantry, 31st Division; Service Number 35009892; killed August 5th 1944. I imagine the date of death is correct but may be approximate.

A kind genealogist sent this info to me:

In the 1930 U.S. Census for Youngstown, Mahoning
County, Ohio, there was an Oliver Family on what looks
like Patonica Street. Oliver B Butler, Sr, age 39,
Marville 32 and Oliver B. Butler age 5. No other
children were listed at that time. I am hoping someone would
remember them living in the Youngstown area and recognize the circumstances.
