Birth: Sep. 25, 1921
Florida, USA
Death: Feb. 6, 2001
Volusia County
Florida, USA

Hansel is an Uncle I never met. When traveling in Florida with my Father in 1970, my Father and an Uncle went to visit Hansel in a Veteran's Home near Jacksonville, Florida. He was said to have a beautiful singing voice and was a member of his church choir.

Hansel was a veteran of WWII.
Hansel enlisted in the U.S. Navy on 18 July 1940.
He served his county in the Navy until 19 July 1948.

My father said Hansel suffered from 'shell shock'. I pray he had a good life and now rests in peace.


I am currently looking for more information on Hansel. Please feel free to email any information directly to me. It will be much appreciated.



Clara Georgie Bowden & Thomas Cleveland Chaney were married on June 13, 1920 by the Official, H. A. Shaw, N. P. in Irwin County, Georgia.
