US Military transport records - Nurses Replacement draft undated

Looking at newspapers I think she may have been living in Springfield, Ohio with her uncle, local Doctor, who died the same year - TBC

There appears to be an Obituary in the Sprinfield Daily News 14/11/18 that supports the contention

Ireland casualties of war has a "Warrant Officer" dying at Haslar on 5/3/17

Good man George, thank you very much indeed. These sailors seem to be no problem to you. I would never have found him.

Thanks again.

 Kind regards.

The register of seamen says he was discharged 25th January 1916 (invalided diabetes)

Brilliant stuff George, thank you. I wonder would diabetes and cardiac syncope tie in together?

 Thanks again George.

The WFA card found by George does not help much. Says Widow born 1880. Christian name Teres - I assume Teresa. Address (1)7, Queens St, Queenston (assume Queenstown).

Possibly, but very tentatively, Teresa nee Hanley married 1904. Reg in Cork. Take with a pinch of salt but may explain his presence in 1917

Naval roll show entitled to trio.

Born 30/10/1880, Malborough Devon. Thatcher on enlistment

Baptised in Malborough 1882. Father a thatcher Edward. Mother Rhoda Jane.

1891 census

Have  we looked for George O'Connell before?  Someone came up with a George Connell.  DC is dated 11th November, Obit 11th December. Two different men?

You are right he served as his brother. He went through just the same.

One question Bob, how did you remember that? that's amazing. I forgot stuff that never even happened..

 Kind regards.
