My uncle was a marine fireman. He died in 1928 and we can find absolutely nothing on him.We wondered if he died on board a ship or under fire or something? Can't find his death listed anywhere or in any state. Only a family genealogy book mentions his death and no one is left alive to tell us what happened to him.
Can anyone advise me where to look for death records on him?
His name was William Franklin Kinsey, born 1881 in Franklin County, VA and supposedly died in March 1928. He had been stationed in Norfolk,Va when he got his WWI draft card. It shows profession as "marine fireman" .That would be c.1918. There are no other records on him.
Thanks sincerely to anyone who can help!!
