My wife's Uncle died either in Bataan or during the Death March. I am looking for any information on him. My wife's family is from Bontoc, Southern Leyte.

Pablo Espiritu,

I come across several Espititus,
        Gavino, Dionicio, Tedoro, Ovidio and Pablo.  Some have the middle initial of P.

Pablo P. Espiritu was born Aug 17, 1917 asnd died Jan 12, 1997.  He is buried at Sto Nino Memorial Park in Naga City Canaman, Cemarines Sur  Philippines.  He is listed in the Corps of Engineers.  He had service both in WW II and Korea.

Both Gavino Espiritu and Dionicio Espiritu were in the Infantry.

Ovidio P. Espiritu is listed on a California Passenger and Crew List.  He was born in 1922 in Olongapo Zambales, Philippines.  Ship sailed from Manila to San Francisco, arriving Aug 7, 1947.  The boat was USAT SS Gen. M.M. Patrick.

Tedoro P Espiritu enlisted in the Philippine Scouts September 4, 1946.  He was single with no dependents.

I tried to list birth dates and cities each was from to better identify the individual soldiers.

Hope this helps out

Thanks Smiley,

But I am sure he died in 1942 on the death march or before in Bataan. My wife's Grandmother was receiving a monthly check from the U.S. Government until her death. I have requested information from the Army Archives. Hopefully his files (if they exist) were not in the fire in '73.
