|Jack Davison||Names on your list|
I see clearly that you do have Mustin. I though Mustin field is mainside at Pensacola. Moffet was not an aviator although he was an energetic proponent of Naval aviation and opponent of Billy Mitchell. His Wikipedia bio says that he was designated a Naval Aviation observer and shows a pilot's wing among his awards and badges, surely an error as there are distinct observer wings. My nephew, an osprey crew chief, wears them. my brother is an aviator and my sister in law wears miniatures of both wings badges as a pendant.

I have to go back and look up a few more names. I will retake the pictures, they were watering the area where the graves were at. Maybe the pictures will be better. Give me by Saturday to take of this. I don't have my paperwork with the information on me now, but I will email it to you this afternoon and retake the pictures on Saturday.

Thank you for your Find A Grave entry of Mr. Seiler. He was a very well known political figure in Pasadena, CA in the 1960's and I rented a building where he left a lot of material. Did you know him? Thanks!

Hi Mike - Well, I finally found where my grandfather is buried! He is in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Arlington, Mass. I have a picture of his grave. Would you be kind enough to update the info on your post? Am I able to upload the picture to your post or do you have to do it?

|AZEXPLORER||Capt James Monroe Wharton, memorial 33992596|
I noticed that you submitted a flower for Capt James Monroe Wharton, memorial 33992596, and on it you posted:
Aviation Cadet J. M. Wharton, USNR, designated Naval Aviator #4925 in 1936. Captain for PanAm.
Did you post that on a flower because the person who manages the memorial did not respond to an edit you sent her, so you posted it as a flower?
The reason I ask is that I have been having serious issues with her responding and posting my edits. Regular edits are not accepted and eventually default to auto-accept in about 3 weeks (21 days), but requests to update their bio data go unanswered. Direct emails sent to her direct email address go unanswered. Messages left on her Find A Grave bio page go unanswered.
I am polite and not rude at all, so have no idea what the problem is. But, this has been going on for months and now I am getting angry.
I have hundreds of edits stacking up for her, awaiting her approval. If she is no longer active, I have asked her to just transfer the memorials to me and I will manage them. SOMEONE has to actively manage the memorials, and if it isn't going to be her, then it needs to be someone who will.
Thanks for your help,

accurate records are important. I was working from old handwritten paperwork and back then so much was written phonetically. Thanks for the corrections.

Thank you Mike for adding the information to my grandfather's memorial. Was there any other info available? I know very little about my grandfather other than what I have found on Ancestry so anything additional would be wonderful. Thanks again! Kristi

I just noticed and don't know why I declined your suggestion for his birthplace. I will have to ask his son as well as check the records. I think "Scott" was the home in the head of his Lucky Bag bio. I will try Ancestry, too.

Thanks for the memorial for Jack Derthick of Alpena. He was a favorite almost-relative (his mother married my uncle, second marriage for each) way way long ago. We loved hearing his stories of his childhood and the Navy.

|Jack Davison||ctommelins and souceks|
I see that you have recognized the Crommelins among your prewar aviators on their memorials, but not yet the Souceks. Both are great names in USNA history and Naval Aviation. Five Crommelin brothers four of whom were fighter pilots, and four Souceks, two brothers and one cousin test pilots, The other Crommelin brother and another Soucek cousin were surface admirals. All the Souceks were football and lacrosse (almost natural for Oklahomans then) greats.

I guess I had Dewitt confused with someone else when I said to you that the SSDI was in Marion Co., Florida. It must have been a late night when I did that. So Sorry.
PS are you related??

Ok I found the Florida State Death Index and have copied and pasted it to his memorial. The county of Dade is not an option for Florida on Find A Grave. Hmm I wonder why.. Check out his memorial and let me know.

This is my Dad, with the Fighting One Squadron Photo. Many of the pilots' names probably will fit your special interest. Forrest Sherman is not in the photo. I think he was CO later. I think Apollo Soucek, about the middle of the row of pilots, was XO and perhaps acting CO as he is not named as a CO in the pretty good Top Hats history available at Amazon. Ehen Dad and I visited the Naval Aviation display at ths Mal A&S Museum, Dad looked up at the F4B in Top Hats CO's livery (engine cowling completely painted in squadron color, red), he said "Yep, that's Forrest Sherman's plane."Squadron colors today still match those of the 30's which matched hull numbers then. On my Med deplyment in 1957, VF-31 was red, VT-32 was yellow, VA-34 was blue and VA-35, my son was in VA-195, which was also green.
