#1206 p 70 Revenue Cutter School Landing Force Exercise Gardiners Bay, Long Island New York


Jack Barrett summer l936 was "Senior officer Present Afloat" SOPA of five destroyers, which took Annapolis Naval Academy midshipmen - juniors class of 1938 in three groups for four week training cruises centered at Gardiners Bay, Long Island, where Jack had participated in Revenue Cutter School landing force exercises when ITASCA returned from 1910 cruise to English Channel. In August 1936, Jack and many of the Annapolis midshipmen were guests at Maidstone Country Club, Gardiners Bay. The feive destroyers also called at Naval War College, Newport, RI and West Point Military Academy and observator in New York city and were photographed in an MGM movie.

C-L-A-X-T-O-N Add to CLAXTON chapter -There is a 1970 letter in text from CBS newsman Richard C. Hottelet,who recollected he was a Reserve seaman aboard CLAXTON in Long Island area summer 1936 and that Jack Barrett encouraged him in his education - Jack was commanding the five destroyers training Annapolic midshipmen of the junior class. Hottelet was imprisoned in Germany at some point early in World War 2 on trumped-up spy charges probably while U.S. was still neutral. After Hottelet's release he covered Dunkirk evaucation and then was hired in London by Erward R. Murrow for Columbia Broadcasting. Hottelet traveled aboard Allied aircraft in Normandy invasion and sent the earliest live report from the field. He was later CBS-TV United Nations Correspondent many years.+ DD-140 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Claxton (DD-140: dp. 1,090; l. 314'; b. 31'; dr. 8'8"; s. 35 k. cpl. 122; a. 4 4", 1 3", 12 21" tt.; cl. Wickes) The first Claxton (DD-140) was launched 14 January 1919 by Mare Island Navy Yard; sponsored by Mrs. F. W. Kellogg; and commissioned 15 September 1919, Lieutenant Commander F. T. Leighton in command. Claxton operated on the west coast until 18 June 1922, when she was decommissioned at San Diego, Calif. Recommissioned 22 January 1930, she served on the west coast and on reserve training from New Orleans until September 1933, when she joined the Special Service Squadron for patrol duty off Cuba. Between January and November 1934 she was in rotating reserve at Charleston, then returned to Cuban patrols until October 1935. After exercising with the battle force, she was assigned to the Naval Academy during 1936 and 1937, making three coastal cruises. Duty with Squadron 40-T, formed to patrol European waters protecting American interests during the civil war in Spain, occupied Claxton from October 1937 until November 1938. In January 1939 she returned to duty at the Naval Academy, but in September began service on the neutrality patrol off the Florida Straits. In January and February 1940, she patrolled off the New England coast, and after training cruises on the east coast, arrived at Halifax, Nova Scotia, 21 November 1940. On 26 November she was delivered to British authorities in the destroyers-for-bases exchange. She was decommissioned 5 December 1940, and commissioned in the Royal Navy the same day as HMS Salisbury. She arrived at Belfast, Northern Ireland, 30 December 1940 for duty with the Western Approaches Command escorting Atlantic convoys. In April and May 1942, she joined in escorting USS Wasp (CV-7) on her two voyages to fly planes off for beleaguered Malta. Returning to the Clyde, Salisbury guarded troop convoys in the Atlantic until September, when she was assigned to the Royal Canadian Navy. Based on St. John's, Newfoundland, Salisbury served on local escort duty until November 1943, when with newer escorts available, she was placed in care and maintenance status at Halifax, and paid off on 10 December. She was sold for scrapping 26 June 1944.

Jack Barrett had limited success with tomatoes in Waikiki, growing small "pear" and "plum" tomatoes that had to be enclosed in bags for protection agiainst insects. At 52 Emmonsdale Road, West Roxbury from 1948 to 1965 he had excellent results especially with three-pound red Winsall tomatoes and as related "Crystal White" variety obtained from Burpee and Breck seeds, now probably extinct. Conservation of plant species and varieties and agricultural-horticultural cultivars in a huge challenge. These home tomatoes were much more tender and tasty than store varieties. Tue, 16 Oct 2001 The Inga - Is your collaborator recent Harvard Ph.d? To: Cc:,,,,,, Dr. Bermingham - Your September 21, 2001 article on age of Inga genus and species interested me for several reasons. One is that I suspect your co-author is the same Christopher Dick is the same botanist I knew several years at Harvard, where he was researching Lecythidaceae the brazil nut family. If so and he is still near you in the Balboa area, please convey my greetings, and I shall try sending a copy of this to his old Harvard E mail to see if it reaches him directly. I also have followed the work of many tropical ecologists including Peter Ashton on dipterocarps and Otto Solbrig on Brazil ecology and many topics. I have been interested in Ledyard Stebbins's work on grass genetics and his debates with William Burger "Why are there so many flowering plant species?" and with Armen Takhtajan on the region from Assam to Fiji "cradle or museum?" Parenthetically, the molecular data favoring the extreme age of Amborella trichopoda of New Caledonia in one way supports Takhtajan's 1940s insight on the critical importance of Malesia-southwest Pacific, but on the other hand New Caledonia was in more southerly latitudes in the early Cenozoic, and Amborella is in the highest life zone of New Caledonia, so Amborella cuts both ways - New Caledonia is BOTH a CRADLE and a MUSEUM. I also was privileged to have an hour's interview with Ledyard Stebbins at Harvard libraries when he was about 87 years old. He stressed his belief in the importance of cytology and discuessed his work on Dactylis glomerata. Molecular data indicating neotropical Anomochloa-Streptochaete are the earliest branches within living Poaceae tend to support Stebbins's view that some of the earliest grasslands were in tropical portions of Gondwana that have become part of northern South America, where now-extinct unglulates browsed and trampled. Legumes are of great interest in their own right- outgroups are being clarified - the Allens did a lot of work on the root bacteria, and in some cases ectomycorrhizae have replaced the bacteria I believe. Polhill edited one systematic treatment, and I remember Jennie Chappill worked on legume cladistics with Peter Stevens at Harvard a few years ago. The age of Gletischia is noteworthy, while younger taxa like Robinia learned to conserve their pollen for appropriate pollinators in uplands where nutrients were scarcer. The trend to herbs and annuals and many other features make it a remarkable family, including economic importance and adaptation to dry habitats in Africa. From my childhood in Waikiki 1940s I remember glorious blooming shower trees Cassia, 'orchid-tree' Bauhinia, weedy 'koa haole' and rain-tree Samanea saman. So Inga is important in its own right. Michael Donoghue has been interested in the paraphyly of many tropical families such as Sapindaceae, which he believes should include temperate maples Aceraceae. Tropical climates have changed less than temperate and polar regions with the thinning of the atmosphere. Although you are Neotropical botanists, I am reminded of an interesting zoological problem in Africa, where a single species Orycteropus afer the aardvark is widely distributed over a seven-million square miles region south of the Sahara roughly forming a triangle -Cape of Good Hope in south - Morocco in west - Ethiopia-Somalia in northeast. A hundred years ago taxonomists were inclined to make subspecies and varieties, but the effort has been discontinued I think because they intergrade. I did some reading trying to figure out why the populations did not break up into separate species. One Explanation may be that a common ancestor of all populations is relatively recent - that they spread out when drying conditions and grasslands developed less than ten million years ago. I have been hoping molecular biologists might investigate what I have been calling the "three aardvark" problem - how far back to a common ancestor from the corners of their range? One difference is that in some areas there is one offspring a year - in others two -depending on rainfall and supply of termites and other food - perhaps genetic factors also. Most have very poor vision - though perhaps some populations might turn up that are exceptions. The vision of the ancestor might be of interest. The age of aardvark populations would contribute to understanding history of tropical ecology. Your article and the connected Richardson-et-al. report are of great interest. My father was a career Naval officer who in 1934-5 was Executive Officer of Survey ship HANNIBAL on west coast of Panama-Costa Rica, and my mother lived in Balboa those summers. Best wishes - John B.

#1211 p 70 Landing Force Exercise Gardiners Bay Long Island New York August 1910 Revenue Cutter Service. The 1910 cruise was in British waters at the time of the Johnson Jeffries heavyweight boxing championship match, which interested many cadets as news came. An unauthorized rowing match book place between Revenue CutterSchool cadets and British counterparts -although it was not Jack Barrett's idea, he wound up writing a note, "Can any of your men row?" which was sent across. At this period the British Navy was polarized between adherents of Admirals Fisher and Bereford, as Revenue Cutter School engineering cadet Milton Daniels recalled in 1970 letters. The Revenue Cutter School cadets were in Paris on Bastille Day, July 14, 1910, and returned to US for landing force exercises at Gardiners Bay August 1910 shown in this photo.Then they received the surprsing news that their school was moving from Arundel Cove, South Baltimore to an old Civil War Army post, Fort Trumbull on Connecticut coast south of NEW LONDON. The school was renamed the Coast Guard Academy 1915; enlarged; and moved 1932 to present site north of New London, where Jack and John Barrett visited the Academy June 1968 while attending Harvard-Yale crew races there. In letter Admiral Wilfred N. Derby tells of clearing yachts out of the way of the race while he was Superintendant of Coast guard Academy l947-1950. He used to grow Jack Barrett's tomato seedlings at his home on Viles St. Weston. His wife's family had roots inHawaii and New Zealand.


John Robert Barrett,detail 1933 at 640East Seventh Street South Boston E-A-G-L-E 19, G-R-A-N-D-P-A


#1212 p 70 -Born November 29, l854 John Robert Barrett was orphaned by age eight 1863 and went to live with unrelated baker Michael Thompson at 640 East Seventh Street east of L St. in City Point section - where he was listed in 1870 United States census. He was apprenticed to master plumber William S. Locke, started his own plumbing shop 1890 to 1926 -and in 1902 bought the house where he had grown up- he lived there till August 21, l942 age 87 years nearly nine months. Commander Jack Barrett was the only child of his first wife Catherine Agnes Buckley married April 1884, deceased June 1889. By his second wife Mary Lane he had son William Joseph Barrett October 24, l895 and two daughter Mollie {Mary Frances] February 11, l898 and Catherine August 12, l900.-----G__R__A___N__D__P__A Barrett John Robert Barretts paternal grandparents were named Robert Barrett and Catherine Sullivan. They remained in Cork, Ireland, as did one daughter Mary, who married Cornelius Kerrigan in the Ballymartyle area near Kinsale.Tax censuses of Cork in 1827 and 1852 show a Robert Barrett on the east bank of the Bandon River, south of Bandon not far from Ballytmartle and Kinsale. The main source of early history is a September 1911 letter by Robert Joseph Mehegan, Boston Herald printer 1857-1925 to his son Robert junior working in land office Evanston Wymong, who was about to visit relative in San Francisco. It tells that a group of five children of the above couple came to Boston in 1841 - Robert, Kate, Ellen, Johanna, and Margaret. Of these Robert the eldest was probably born about 1815, worked as a milkman, married and moved late 1840s to near St. Peter and Paul Church on West Broadway, and had four children that grew up- records suggest a baby named Robert died, Michael may have been born 1850, Mary is definietely l852 while family was near A and West Third or Athens corner Second. The family was on Goddard Street Dochester when John Robert was born November 29, 1854, but the location near old wetlands and Lark Street and Saint Augustine Church was part of the 1855 Washington Village annexation to Boston and a few years later was renamed West Eighth Street. While living in downtown Boston in 1840s Robert Barrett appears to have placed an advertisment in the Irish newspaper "The Pilot" seeking to locate his maternal cousin surnamed Sulllivan, who had emigrated 1846 from Cork to St. John New Brunswick. Of the four sisters who accompanied him to Boston 1841, the older two Kate and Ellen married brothers Charles and John Mehegan from Ballyheedy, Ballinhassig, county Cork. These two families have numerous descendants whose surnames have included Hoarde, Maloney,Carty, Brennan,Soger, Craig, Sullivan. The two younger girls Johanna and Margaret crossed Panama by muleback to Panama 1854 and lived many years at 2023 and 2043 Polk St, -Johanna became Mrs. Hession marrying an engineer- one daughter married Emil Fahrbach, an executive of Dinkelspiel stores. The milkman Robert Barrett had a second daughter Kate in 1855 or 1856 and died December 18, 1859 of lung disease. Little is known of his wife Catherine Daly. Records conflict whether she was born in Masschusetts or Ireland. Daly is a strongly localized West Cork name, especially from around Skibbereen. The Dalys were bards and associated with the powerful O Mahony landowners of the area. Spelling of the name varies in records and often followed the preference of clerks and centsus takers. The Irish form properly should be O Daly or O Dailey. When her grandson John Berchmans Barrett was born August 28, 1888 his godfather was Andrew Dailey at the christening by Rev. Johnson at Gate of Heaven Church at I and East Fourth Streets - possibly some kin. It is not possible to identify him positively in Boston directories - a few years earlier an Andrew Dailey was listed as a cigar maker on West Seventh Street - he does not appear thereafter in boston directories, but John Robert Barrett kept plumbing shop account records 1890 to 1894, and in these D. Dailey of West Seventh Street appears several times as a customer, and another Dailey on Second street was also a customer. Mrs. Robert Barrett nee Catherine Daly died of tuberculosis in 1863. Jack Barrett stated that her sister-in-law Ellen Barrett Mehegan adopted the two daughters Mary and Kate while their mother was still living, but that his father John Robert Barrett preferred to live with a baker Michael Thompson "at City Point" in one of the oldest houses east of L Street, at 640 East Seventh Street. Jack Barrett apparently learned that his father had some resentment on his sisters being taken away while their mother was still alive, but quarantine for tuberculosis was probably the reason. Jack Barrett in later years did much probate and land court legal work and historical research also, and he may have found probate procedings concerning his aunts, with whom he corresponded regularly until their deaths in May and November1923. The trancontinental railroad was completed in 1869, and they went in 1871 to San Francisco, where Kate lived with the Barrett immigrants on Polk Street, while Mary entered the teaching order of Presentation Nuns 1871 under the name Sister Mary Joseph. She was many years in San Francisco, at Sonoma 1890, where she sent newspaper articles and postcards and a photo in which she was standing in front of the convent with mountains in the background - then for many years she was Mother Superior of the Presentation Girls High School in Berkeley California, where Robert J. Mehegan juinior visited her in 1911. She selected Jack Barett's middle name Berchmans, honoring a Belgian child canonized as a saint 1887. When her sister Kate died May 1923, she wrote Jack Barrett explaining a complex will under which Kate Barrett in 1915 received half of the estate of her immmigrant aunt Johanna Hession, for whom she made a home many years - thye remained stayed in the Hession -Fahrbach family. Then Jack Barrett received a legacy from his aunt Kate Barrett in 1926, after a life estate to her cousin Kate Kerrigan, who came from Ballymartle Cork to San Francsico in 1897. This led to tracing several Kerrigan relations because Kate Kerrigan's sister Johanna Kerrigan had married John Ring from the Ballymartle-Ballinhassig area, and his nieces Mrs. Joan Finn and Peg Ring and their cousin Ella Collins of Moskeigh took an interest and were extremely helpful in 1971. They kept in touch with a Ring descendant Eva Kimbrough of Berkeley, whose daughter had attended the Presentation School there. Nano Nagle was the founder of the Presentation Order in Cork. Interest in this history was whetted because Robert Barrett's landlord 1855-1859 on Goddard Street-West Eighth Street was named Michael A. Ring, and he played an active role in charity and church affairs in the South Boston Irish community. He started out in junk and gunny cloth according to directories, and he had a number of children, including Thomas Ring, who became a trustee of Saint vincent de Paul, which look out for the needs of the poor, especially children. A will of Michael A. Ring some years later lists twenty-four grandchildren. He lived near Vinton Street, across south of Old Colony Boulevard, also in the 1855 Washington Village annexation.In the 1970s John Barrett junior had an extended telephone conversation regarding this history with retired United States House of Representatives Speaker John W. McCormack, who lived on Vinton Street as a child and was most interested in the local history.Directories indicated that one of the Goddard Street neighbors was a Mrs. Welch,who was a sister of the baker Michael A. Thompson who adopted John Robert Barrett 1862. Her photo and that of another sister Mrs. McGlinchy appeared in the oldest Barrett family photo album. John Robert Barrett was listed as a resident at 640 East Seventh Street the Thompson home in the 1870 United States census. For a year or so at some point John Robert went somewhere in the Middle West to live and work with his older brother Michael, but he returned to Boston and was apprenticed to the master plumber William S. Locke in the 1870s, and he later worked for Locke prior to establishing his own plumbing shop first on Atlantic Avenue and Federal Street near South Station and after 1908 to 1922 aT 112 HARRISON AVENUE near present day Tufts Dental and Medical School and Chinatown. JohnRobert Barrett's Boston poll tax payment records from 1875, l876, and 1877 were found in the South Boston home after the death of his daughter Mollie October 11, 1967. John Robert Barrett married Catherine Agnes Buckley April 19, l884 at Gate of Heaven Church - ceremony performed by Reverend Lee. They lived for a time a Thomas Park on dorchester Heights and also at P St City P{oint. Their son John Berchmans Barrett was born August 28, 1888 at 654 East Sixth Street, but his mother died of unknown causes June 8, 1889, when he was less than ten months old. John Robert Barrett went to live with the Buckley in-laws, who had moved to Park Street. Melrose in 1884. Aunts Minnie and Maggie Buckley and grandparents looked after young Jack while his father commuited by train to the plumbing shoip on Boston. Many of John Robert Barrett friends can be identified from old family photo albums. There were at least five photos of his wife Catherine Buckley, and onew of her mother and one dated 1872 or her brother John - a separate locket of her youngest sister Minnie - a tintype of John robert Barrett's older brother Michael, and shots of his sisters Mary and Kate in San Francisco- photos of plumber William S. Locke and his brother Ned - photos of Mrs. Welsh and Mrs. McGlinchy - two Buckley cousins in Milford an older man an younger woman- of Civil War Veteran George Varnum in uniform -Jack Barrett recollected that he was in parades in 1890s- or Con Crowley, whom Jack believed a plumbing inspector and a friend Wally Sweeney.Also cousin [Robert Joseph] "Mehegan" and next to him "Kate" his sister Mrs. Craig who later lived near Blossom Street and Massachusetts General Hospital.
