Dear Diane,
Yes, please do email the info on Squire Booth Zane to me at

Since my original posting, I've been sent more information on him which is posted here...

and which is as follows...

The Western Star, January 16, 1942, Page 1. Col. 2. PROTECTION MAN KILLED NEAR PHILLIPINES
Squire Zane, who formerly lived in Protection and who for several years has been in the U.S. Navy, last week was reported killed in action near the Phillipine Islands. The date was not given. Mrs. Zane and three children recently moved to Protection from California. Mr. Zane was serving on a supply ship. He is the first man from Comanche county in the country's armed forces to be reported killed since war was declared. (SB)

The Western Star , March 20, 1942. (excerpt): "...Squire Boone Zane of Protection, who was killed in action by the Japs on December 7 while serving on a mine tender off the Philippines." (SB)
