Military research help for missing soldier
I am researching my GREAT UNCLE, named Jolly Edwards of Gasburg, Brunswick County, Virginia. Reportedly Jolly Edwards born around 1895 in Brunswick County, VA joined the service (possibly the Navy)in WWI. Got sick on a ship, died and was buried at sea. I have been unable to find any record of him in any branch of the service, or dying period. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I could research this further?
