“Howard Shuler PAGE was aboard the submarine, Pompano, with my uncle. The submarine went down during WWII.

Would you check any sources you might have   to see if we can find family?  I have exhausted any Ancestry contacts that seemed promising.

 

The USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park in Honolulu, Hawaii is establishing a Pompano Family Network. Recent developments may prove to be successful in finding out what happened to that submarine and relatives will be notified if such is the case.

 

The web site www.OnEternalPatrol.com (WWII boats) you will find a memorial page for Howard Schuler on that site. They need a photo of him.

 

We know father was Arthur Bernard PAGE living at 221 S. Alston in Durham, N.C. as that was where he  was when he was  notified that his son  was missing and later dead.  He can be found on the 1930 and 1940  there.

The US Navy is seeking permission from the Japanese government to do an identifying dive on the wreck they find this summer off the coast of Honshu, Japan which they believe to be the Pompano.

Finding family for these sailors has just hit the top of the list. I hope you can help.

    Loretta,

    You might try the Durham County Library and their WW2 Scrapbook. Howard S. Page is mentioned twice. (Vol 1, page 41; Vol 6 page 43). This is a collection of newspaper clippings from the area and during WW2. I was lucky enough to find a lot of my Father’s brothers and sister and cousins in this collection. Contact the Lynn Richardson at the library in charge of the North Carolina collection and get copies of these two entries. Her email is lrichard@dconc.gov

    Good luck,

    Linda Thompson
