Hi Mary, Got the address you e-mailed me. Will try to get it out in the next couple of days. I've been working on renovating a house so we can move in in 12 days. Time has been tight.

You asked about the finding of the letter opener. Not much of a story to tell. It was in the basement laying by itself on top of a wooden foundation sill. It was around the corner of a 90 degree turn in the far back of the basement where you almost have to crawl to get there. I can see why it might have remained "hidden" there for a long time. As the new home owner I was exploring every little nook and cranny. Nothing else was there, a bit of a mystery.

Hi, I'll send you an e-mail that you can use to send me your address. No need to reimburse me for the postage. Interesting that I was able to find him on a Find a Grave and connect to you so quickly. I use Find A Grave all of the time doing research on a Civil War Regiment I had an ancestor who served in. I've created a Virtual Cemetery for the unit, 500+ names and counting. Glad someone in family wants the letter opener. Paul

Hi Again, I would presume that his Navy service probably brought him to San Diego given the large Navy presence here. Maybe he rented the house while he was here, it's not far from the big Naval Hospital here.

If you, or another of his descendants, want the letter opener, I'll mail it to who ever wants it.

P.S. I noticed he only lived to be 55, I'm curious what happened to him.

Hello Mary, Are you related to the Poole a Family?

I recently purchased a house in San Diego California, in the basement I found a silver letter opener, with a mother of pearl handle, that is engraved "Gerald O. Poole M. D.".

I have no idea how it ended up in San Diego. The house was built in 1930.

Hi Mary, please note that I have added a photo of the marker for Harvey. At present it does not have his date of death and I plan on replacing it soon. Joz
