I would like to know what happens with Navy deserters, how long they are "wanted" by the Navy, and whether there is any way of getting details of their departure, and whether they were ever captured.

Augusta Leahy

We are having terrible trouble finding anything about the origins of AUGUSTA LEAHY, who is my husband's great-grandmother.
