SON REPORTED DEAD TELEGRAPHS MOTHER 6-21-1919 Tribune

Informed that her son, Finley Winningham, was “missing in action” in France last fall and later being notified by the war department that he had been killed, this information being followed by unofficial reports that he was wounded, were conflicting reports received by Mrs. Ella Winningham, of North Twelfth street, and all were contradicted Friday by a telegram received by her from her son, stating that he was alive, and also well, and would be at home soon.

Winningham was a member of Company H, 112th infantry. Mrs. Winningham, who had given up her son as dead, is rejoicing today over the latest good news, and is anxiously waiting his return home.
