Mississippians at Pearl Harbor – Mississippi Department of Archives and History

Updated December 7, 2019 – re-checked those who don’t have headstone or cenotaph markers. Updated December 08, 2018: Mostly done for now, but am working on checking other graving websites to see if they have any of these individuals listed.  Added Durrell Wade memorial locations as he was recently identified as one of the USS Oklahoma unknowns identified through DNA testing and he was moved to a veteran’s cemetery in northern Mississippi and led to rest on December 7, 2018. Also finished the color scheme as I missed some initially. For some who are listed on BillionGraves as USS Arizona Memorial who weren’t on the USS Arizona, they are memorialized near the Arizona Memorial’s land building with plaques and not on the memorial by the ship. If you click on the link for an individual, you will see where you can visit the memorial plaque.

Thank you Mike Allard at Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH) for the list as well as the update on Durrell Wade. I started this post just over five (5) years ago. At the time, this link was active: http://mdah.state.ms.us/senseofplace/2013/12/06/mississippians-at-pearl-harbor (link now broken, but a copy was saved to the Wayback Machine – https://web.archive.org/web/20140719235634/http://mdah.state.ms.us/senseofplace/2013/12/06/mississippians-at-pearl-harbor)- Update: Found a link on the MDAH website: http://www.mdah.ms.gov/senseofplace/2013/12/06/mississippians-at-pearl-harbor/I scheduled this post to go live at the time of the first attack on Pearl Harbor.

If you know of anybody from Mississippi who died at Pearl Harbor who has been missed, please let me know.

Here are Find-A-Grave and BillionGraves memorials for them, when the location is known for an individual; in the case of BillionGraves, it may only be for the cemetery if there isn’t a headstone photo for the person on BillionGraves. Photo requests will be made for those whose headstones, cenotaphs, or memorials have not been photographed. Link to cemetery if the person has not been added to Find-A-Grave and/or BillionGraves.

 Joe E. Mister of Grenada, Grenada County (see below for memorial that turned out not to be his):

No listing on Find-A-Grave based on death date around 1941, but will continue my search. V.A. has records for a possible candidate, but he survived Pearl Harbor and was in a different military branch (Army, not Navy) and this is his memorial Find-A-Gravehttps://www.findagrave.com/memorial/195454798/joe-e_-mister compared to the other Joe E. Mister: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/121336060/joe-eddie-mister.

BillionGraves U.S.S. Arizona Memorial: https://billiongraves.com/grave/Joe-E-Mister/18547516 This is not the same Joe E. Mister as the one who died much later (see the next link below), but the odds of two Joe E. Mister’s from a city in Mississippi are somewhat low; they are in two branches: Army and Navy. It looks like there are a number of memorials on the Arizona that include many of those who died during the attack regardless of where they were serving.
