A name is needed. I note an Ashtabula native, William Fileds (probably Fields), was drowned when he fell off the tug Fairport in that harbor on 11 May 1918.

I hope that someone can point me in the right direction to find the information I am searching for.
My great Uncle drowned in an accident in 1918. The information I have is that he fell from a ship. In researching on Ancestry.com I found a document of draft registration less than one year prior to his death where he listed his occupation as “dredger’’ Ashtabula Harbor . I would like to find an account of this if it recorded anywhere.
Is there somewhere “official” where I could request information?
Thanks.
