I am a member of the Manila American Legion Post 94 that has been approached to help find out who owns a recently located unkept cemetery in Manila comprised of American Volunteers during the Spanish American War. It seems the Japanese destroyed all local records so we are trying to find out who is responsible for the upkeep as some of the graves have been uprooted by robbers in search of valuables.
We have tried the US Embassy in Manila but to no avail as those records may have been destroyed as well and no one if quite sure where to look for this information.
Any ideas on how to proceed would be appreciated along the name of any groups that may have any interest in sponsering
caretaking of this cemetery?
Best Regards/ Leg. Robert W Mull Jr
