Re: [OH] [MS] Crew members of USS Petrel

You're Welcome and Thank you....Nope, I didn't know about their involvement in the CW.

I did a little research and found that George F. & William E., the sons, served with the 5th USCI Regiment Co "K". They were mustered in and trained at Camp Delaware, Ohio and saw extensive battle service with the 5th USCI. They are both honored on Plaque A-14 at the USCT CW Memorial located in Wash DC.

There is a photo in the Precious Photo Section that includes Bernard Newman, the step grandson listed in your previous posting. See Precious Photos Section on AfriGeneas and scroll to "w".....Whispering Echos Youth Choir Piqua, Ohio. Bernard, or "Ipsy", as he was nicknamed is the tallest fellow in the picture....back row standing to the right of Mr. Wilson Jefferson, Sr. the choir director.
