In 1992, during my research for my book, The Guile-Gile-Guiles Genealogy (pub. 1997), I talked to Frank's grandson, Joseph T. Gile (Thomas R.>Frank S.).Frank was from Andover, MA, and his citation reads - !Complete Citation from Medal of Honor website - GILE, FRANK S.
Rank and organization: Landsman, U.S. Navy. Born: 1845, Massachusetts. Accredited to: Massachusetts. G.O. No.: 32, 16 April 1864. "Citation: On board the U.S.S. Lehigh, Charleston Harbor, 16 November 1863, during the hazardous task of freeing the Lehigh, which had been grounded, and was under heavy enemy fire from Fort Moultrie. After several previous attempts had been made, Gile succeeded in passing in a small boat from the Lehigh to the Nahant with a line bent on a hawser. This courageous action while under severe enemy fire enabled the Lehigh to be freed from her helpless position."
Joe in 1992 lived in Derry, NH, but has since moved back to Mathuen, Mass.His grandfather is buried at Ridgewood Cem. in Andover, and I have a newspaper article where Joe was pictured beside his grandfather's grave on Memorial Day.He might have a photo of him.
