Pvt. Skillicorn, Conway Excerpt from the article "3 Dead, 6 Hurt, 3 Missing, City's Share of Glory," the Chicago Tribune, 17 July 1918, page 5.

Private Conway Skillicorn, missing in action, came to Chicago eight years ago from Llanrwst. Wales, where his parents live. He was boarding at 1418 North Central Park avenue when he enlisted in the regular army in May, 1917. He has suffered much at the hand of the Hun. A brother in the Canadian army died at Ypres; another fell in the Marne drive with the British; and a third is with the British territorials, seeking vengeance. Conway was with the second engineers.
