Help with W. G.'s Last Name
« on: January 04, 2015, 03:04:08 am »
Good day all,

http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/Albatross/vol011of055/vol011of055_140_1.jpg

The last entry on this page refers to "Shipped Samuel Nelson (Lds) for one year and rated him Carpenters Mate, also W. G. ~ (1. C. F.)"

Can anyone make out W G's last name?

Thanks for any help.

Milton

I'm thinking it looks like W G/D Saddler.

Would go with WD Saddler but could be G as I don't know the writing.

Determined to be naughty? Our Mr Saddler appears between 4am and 8 am on this page as W.H.B. Saddler (looking again at the original page perhaps that second letter is a 'B')
