PRIVATE RAYMOND CARTY was born in New Jersey to Owen G. and Pearl Carty. The couple broke up almost at once, and Owen Carty immediately remarried, eventually settling in Pleasantville NJ. At the time of the 1930 Census, Raymond Carty was living with his mother Florence and sisters Ruth and Lillian on Berlin Road in Gibbsboro NJ, where his mother worked as a housekeeper for John Hendrickson, a varnish maker at the paint works in Gibbsboro. His mother later re-married to a man named Markart. Raymond Carty had lived at 114 Barrett Avenue in Magnolia NJ. Prior to being inducted into the United States Army, on April 7, 1942, he worked for the Kieckhefer Container Company in the Delair section of Pennsauken NJ. He was assigned to a field artillery unit in December of 1943.

Raymond Carty was killed in action in France on July 28, 1944 at the age of 29. He survived by his mother, Mrs. Pearl S. Markart, sisters Mrs. Florence Carty Schaeffer, Mrs. Lillian Carty Payne, and Mrs. Ruth Carty Stuhl, step-brother Edward Markart, and step-sister Frances Markart, both of Magnolia NJ. The death of Raymond Carty was reported in the August 12, 1944 edition of the Camden Courier-Post.

Raymond Carty was brought home to New Jersey on the spring of 1948. He was buried at Berlin Cemetery in Berlin NJ on May 7, 1948.
