Hi Bennie, first of all thank you very much for your help! First of all when I had done the electronic request for records through NARA, they sent a form back that they had found nothing. All that I know about Henry/Harry C. Thompson is that he was born Aug. 1854 in virginia. He was onboard the U.S.S. Michigan/Wolverine during the time of the Spanish American War and had spent at least 12 years onboard that ship who's port was Erie Pa. He was a resident there in Erie at 448 W. 2nd street. His service pin I.D. was 11865 or 11895, and April 9th is listed on 3 parts of this pin, so I do believe that that would be his enlistment date. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, and if you don't hear from me right away its because my own personal computer is down. I have to use someone elses.
