1) No. Alan Winslow was never in the LE.
2) Yes. Thomas Hewitt passed away on 24 May 1936 and after a bit of a bureacratic struggle was buried at Arlington.

Alan Winslow:

1. 1Lt. Alan Winslow had served in the Lafayette Flying Corps and served in the 94th Pursuit Squadron. On 14 April 1918, he and 1Lt. Douglas Campbell shot down the first two German aircraft for an American squadron. The two German pilots were from Jasta 64w. Alan Winslow's victim was flying an Alb.D.Va and Lt. Campbell brought down a Pfalz D.IIIa which crashed and burned. Lt. Alan Winslow's brother, 1 Lt. Paul Winslow flew with 56 Squadron, S.E.5a RAF. Both were from Chicago, Illinois. 1Lt. Alan Winslow was shot down over German territory on 13 July 1918 and became a POW.
Blue skies,

But, to avoid any possible confusion, Winslow -was- in the Layfayette Flying Corps.
