This is my Great Uncle, John Kolste whose parents emigrated from Holland. I THINK he was born in that country but left while still an infant.

Died in Manilla harbor. My Grandmother wrote with a Euro-style hand & I can scarcely read her notes on the back. He was on a heavy cruiser, but I cannot read the name. SW

There were no heavy cruisers at the time of the Span-Am War. The only US casualties at the battle in Manila Bay were eight wounded in BALTIMORE (an obsolete"protected" cruiser), and all recovered from their injuries.

Most ship muster lists can found at www.spanamwar.com.

Resp'y,
Bob S.
