Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA March 26, 1945 p2
Hubert Sefton Was Killed on Iwo Jima
Corporal Hubert Sefton, 23, a veteran of more than three years’ service with the U.S. Marine corps, was killed in action on Feb. 23 on Iwo Jima according to word received by his mother, Mrs. Edna Goldsworthy Sefton of San Jose. Corporal Sefton was a member of the marine company which raised the American flag on Mount Suribachi, a scene photographed by AP Cameraman Joe Rosenthal, who made one of the most discussed pictures of the war. It was on the day of the flag raising that Corporal Sefton lost his life. A veteran of the Midway battle and other Pacific engagements, Corporal Sefton was the grandson of Mrs. Louise Goldsworthy of Pacific Grove and the nephew of C.M. Goldsworthy of Monterey. He was well known in Pacific Grove where he spent the summer holidays with his family, as a child and young man.
