Help with US Navy ship - Lawton


Recommended Posts

Hi, All! Need some help with this odd question. I was just adding some info to a Find A Grave memorial, and going through the Navy Registers and getting the info on this Machinist. In 1905 and 06, he is stationed on the "Lawton". I tried looking it up online, but all I got was Godzilla myths. Anyone able to help me with the real story of what the Lawton was? 


Thanks in advance!




Here is the info I was compiling:


Died of Lobar Pneumonia at the US Naval Hospital in Brooklyn, NY.

Residence: 197 Madison Ave., New York.

Originally interred at Cypress Hills National Cemetery, NY.
Removed to Arlington, 11 Nov 1920.
