Thanks for the offer Andrea and I do appreciate it.It's quite unlikely that any record would turn up on the net that I have not found.
I have been working on him for a very long time and have tried to explore just about everything.
He died an old man, alone and without any contact that I have found with any of his relatives back in Maine since perhaps the 1920s.
At his death if he had any close friends they were likely as old as he was. He had not provided for any arrangements for his eventual death and it fell to the Salvation Army to take care of his funeral, etc. I have been in contact with the Salvation Army including the person who actually made the arrangements but too much time has passed for him to remember anything useful.
