474th Fighter Group names

I am trying to find the Christian names of six pilots from the 430th Fighter Squadron. I have been through all the group and squadron records (including trips to Maxwell Field and NARA II) and various databases but come up empty. All were very late war assignees, flying the number of missions in ( ) behind their names. Thank you for any help!

Cole (1)
Holmes (1)
F/O Hughes (1)
Johansen (2)
Norris (1)
F/O Neumann (1)

Re: 474th Fighter Group names

Kent,

Neumann most likely Robert W. Neumann from Washington State. (1921-2010). In Air Force Magazine (1951), Vol. 34, he asks if there's ever a reunion of 430th FS planned.
His gravemarker (findagrave) says he was a Flt O.

Regards,
Leendert
