Texaco Tankers, WW2 Merchant Marine-Post 2 of 4

Posted: 1345321756000
Classification: Military
I received ship records from my dad's time as an employee of The Texas Company (now Texaco) in 1944 and 1945 on board the following vessels:

SS Colorado
SS Georgia
SS Indiana
SS Mississippi
SS Oklahoma

Note - These are not US Navy ships, which would be "USS" instead of "SS". These are oil tankers.

I extracted the other names listed and have compiled them in one list, just in case they may help another researcher.

Since Ancestry won't allow me to post PDFs on the board, I saved these as image files. I'm sorry to take up four message threads, but my post crashed when I tried to attach all of them to one post. Post 1 of 4 begins with surnames alphabetically listed, and it continues on to post 2, 3 and 4.

If you find one of your relatives listed, please post a reply with their name, and I'll send over what I have. For the most part, it's just crew lists and a few voyage details, but I'll share what I can.

Hope it helps!
