Dad passed away June 19, 2013. Follow WWII, he took a break then joined the Army Reserve. He went back on active duty in 1950 and retired as a Master Sergeant in 1976.
I've already found the info I need on the follow-
Cahawba (He was 17 when he set sail as a messman)
Andrew A Humphreys
Eliza Jane Nicholson
There are gaps in the paperwork I've found. I have no idea if he retained every ship discharge.
