“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.
