Seeking info re Rushin H. Johnson, born in TX about 1880. Parents were Eli Johnson (B 1852 in Ark?) and Elizabeth S. White (B in AL in 1847 or 1853?).
Rushin was supposedly in Spanish American War, stationed on USS Kersearge at some time. Think he retired, then was recalled to go to Alaska. Supposedly died in VA Hospital in Philadelphia, PA.
Could someone please advise me how to head in the right direction to even start finding info on him. I don't have a service number or anything else on him. Would it help to find out where he enlisted in TX and, if so, how do you go about that? He would have lived west of Ft. Worth when he went into the military.
Thanks for your help.
