    Seeking crew lists of USS Elcano (PG-38) gunboat

    wpmaher Newbie

      It is possible that one of my grandfathers, Raymond Henry Conklin, was on the USS Elcano in China at some time between 1900-1912.  I have been unable to locate any sort of crew list online although there are several sites that give a history of the ship.I believe he was a Chief Petty Officer (an assumption based on this pin that was in his older son's personal effects). If a crew list is not available, are there any resources for USN records from early in the last century?


      CPO pin - Date unknown
