Winfield Scott Thompson & Charles Leonard Moreland

I was wondering if anyone would be able to assist me in my search for grandparents :)

My g-grandfather Winfield Scott Thompson, born September 13, 1886 on Byron St. East Boston, Massachusetts enlisted into the Navy after his mother died when he was the age of 12. He lied about his age and fought in the Navy during the Spanish American War. It took his dad over a year to find him and finally bring him home. I have a request to obtain any records there maybe about him.

I was also wondering my g-g-grandfather Leonard Moreland born May 04, 1849 in Woburn, Massachusetts, he died February 08, 1930 in Salem MA and his son Charles Leonard Moreland born January 30, 1878 in Woburn, Massachusetts. were in the war as well. I have little information on these fellows, so anything that adds color and detail would be great. If they were I will then order their records.

Thanks so much!
