Thanks to another FindAGrave member for this information.
Lieutenant Stanton Hall Wooster and Lieutenant Commander Noel Guy Davis were United States Navy airmen who made an attempt to fly the Atlantic Ocean from New York-to-Paris in the spring of 1927. The men were trying to win the $25,000 dollar Orteig Prize offered by New York hotel owner Raymond Orteig for the first nonstop flight between New York and Paris. Wooster and Davis flew a Keystone Pathfinder plane called American Legion (N-X179). While testing with a heavy load of gas on April 26, 1927 the Pathfinder lost altitude and crashed on its nose in Virginia killing both men. Charles Lindbergh won the prize for his successful flight in the Spirit of St. Louis on May 20-12, 1927.
