Died in Hanoi in 1933

This is part of one of two documents being written up for issue 19 from volume 2 of Casefile Clues--a Reports of Deaths of American Citizens Abroad, 1835-1974, for George Washington Drollette, who died in Hanoi in 1933.

Based upon other records which will be discussed, Drollette had been in China for at least thirty years upon his death. We will look at other records that these materials suggest and discuss the primary and secondary nature of some of the information contained in these records. His widow claims that Drollette's son was her step-son in a letter that accompanies this report, but other documents conflict with that statement.

The widow also claims she does not know where the son is, but last thought he was in Indiana. I'm pretty certain I've found him in 1930 in California.

There are lots of potential leads on this family, but we'll try and stay focused on George for now. There's enough on him to keep us busy for a while.

Subscribe now and get in on the discovery.
