Yes, I know a fair bit about him. He was my father's uncle and was born in Curraboy in 1865. He emigrated to the USA in 1886 and joined the US Navy in 1893. There's loads of stuff on the net if you google his name.
He had no children but there are quite a few relatives around, including myself and my brother and sister, and several other cousins.
We are excited about the proposed memorial to this brave man.
