Danny Wellborn-Owings was a homeless man, and his body was found near a building by the railroad track in a field North of S street between 19th & 20th Streets. He had been missing from contact with family for over 10 years.
He was located from the Soc. Sec Death Index in 2011, under the last name of Owings. He changed his name to enter into the Navy, and be on the same ship as his brother William O. Wellborn. Danny's birth name was Wellborn, son of William Wellborn and Anna Lee Lewis.
All attemps were made to have his ashes returned for burial under his military discharge, but that proved to be a dishonorable discharge. Therefore, the state of California buried him.
He is buried in a grave only listed as a number, in the Camellia (Camilla) Lawn Cemetery, in Sacramento, California. (However, it is questioned if this cemetery is real or not, although the Death Certificate from California states this cemetery).
Danny had served on in the Navy on the USS Enterprise, and although he enjoyed the service, his job as a fireman, he seemed to be in and out of trouble, and finally left with out permission. He went to Canada.
He was truely loved by his sister "Babe", who searched for years on her own before asking me, a cousin by marriage to help find him.
I remember him as a fun, laughing with you person, and although I only met him once in 1972, will always remember him.
Rest in Peace Danny, you are now home with your ancestors.
