    Seeking prisoner records for Jasper Allen

    Beth James Newbie

      I am looking for prisoner records from 1929-1930 for Pacific Branch, U.S. Military Prison-later became Alcatraz.  I think my great-great uncle was at Alcatraz while it was a military prison 1929.  My aunt said that he had attempted to escape and his body was never found and the FBI would come by and see if they had any contact with him into the 1950's.  His name was Jasper Allen-nickname Jap. I did find a newspaper article that said that Jasper "Jap" Allen had disappeared from Alcatraz and they found his clothes with his pocket full of grease that they thought he used to "grease" himself because of the cold water. I would like to get his records- any suggestions? Thank you--
