Subject: Company 259, Oct 25 1944

This may sound like an odd request, but does anyone by any chance have a list of the men in the Sampson Training Center, Company 259 in October 25, 1944?

My father, Edward Donald Leahy, who died in 2001, served in the Navy during WW2. I have been trying to research his side of the family, who he had been estranged from by the time I was born. So far, I’ve come up with nothing. There seem to be no records of him before the 1950s. However, a genealogist found records of another man, Edward Donald Simmons who had the same birthdate, birthplace, as well as the same names for his father, mother, sister and brother. I am trying to find out if Simmons and Leahy are one in the same, which might prove that my father changed his name after the war.

One old photo I have from him shows him in a group photo from the Sampson Training Center. The caption includes the date “October 25, 1944” and “Co. 259”..

If I could get a hold of the names of the men in Company 259, I could see if it includes Edward Donald Leahy or Edward Donald Simmons!
