A hand written letter by S.S. Metcalf (I suspect Sarah) stated that the location of Leonard's grave is (the letter was dated May 26, 1916) at Cemeterio del Norte Section 136, lot 4 Grave number 5. This should make it easier to whom ever wants to snap pictures of our fallen hero's grave site. On some of the Metcalf's letters, she mentions that she took photos of the grave but it didn't turn out well as the sun reflected the writting off, she did say that there was a wood carving at the foot of the cross which she took pictures of and came out good. She stated that she sent the photos along with that letter and the negatives to CW Furlong.
Galahad, been meaning to respond back but got bombarded at work this past week. Thanks for sharing all this and the photocopys...really appreciate it! Im doing some research on some of the folks that were mentioned that knew Furlong in the Philippines.
Found this on one.
Croft was a 1st Lt back during the early Phil-Am War.
This great stuff. The more stuff I find I'll send them your way.
