Bruce B. McIntire

Postby luclor97 » 16 Jun 2012, 19:33

Hello,
I write from Italy and I am asking your help.
I'm looking for information about Bruce B. McIntire, born in Pittsburgh in June 14, 1896 and dead June 1, 1982. Bruce and my ancestor Ralph Bisi were partners in horse racing and horse training, mostly in Florida. Today Bruce will be 116 years....
Do you know a descendant? Maybe they live in Carnegie?
I’d like to contact them, how can I do?

Any help wull be apprecciate

Hello luclor97

I have not been successful finding a marriage or descendants for Bruce B. McIntire.
However, I have found the following...

Not sure if you already had this 1920 Census.
Bruce AND Ralph Bisi were living in OHIO with Ralph's brother-in-law, Ralph Maglione, and his family in Akron, OHIO.
They were working in a dry cleaner shop (and so was Ralph Maglione - maybe it was his shop)

I also found this ship manifest from 1933 for Bruce B. McIntire with the same birthdate and place of birth that you list.
He was sailing from Havana, Cuba.
He is listed as SINGLE and his US residence is "Phoenix Hotel in Lexington, Kentucky"
That would make sense since there are NUMEROUS horse farms in Kentucky :-)

A little information about the PHOENIX HOTEL in Lexington, KY (from wikipedia)

Influence on horse racing

The prominence of the Phoenix Hotel heavily influenced horse racing, as shown by several races carrying the name of the hotel. The Phoenix Hotel Stakes, which was first run in Lexington in 1831, is considered the oldest American horse race for three-year-olds.

Headlines and articles from the New York Times mention several races and titles in horse racing that were named for the Phoenix Hotel, beginning in or prior to 1877. A sports article from the New York Times printed 12 November 1924 described an opening-day feature in Lexington horse racing named the "Phoenix Hotel Handicap", at a mile and seventy yards for three-year-olds and upward". This occurred during a meeting of the Kentucky Association. Similar headlines from 1930 also mention the Phoenix Hotel Handicap in racing. [12][13][14]

The Phoenix Hotel Stakes race was later renamed the Phoenix Breeders' Cup Handicap (currently listed as the Phoenix Stakes), and is run at Keeneland. [15]

Ciao Tressa,
sei sempre così gentile, grazie per il tuo aiuto.

Molto interessante il foglio del manifesto del suo ritorno da Cuba.
Il 1920 Census lo avevo già. Ralph e Bruce erano residenti dalla sorella Teresa Maglione e lavoravano nella "Lavanderia" del cognato di Ralph. Erano solo dipendenti...

Loro due erano diventati amici durante gli anni 1917-1919 passati nel servizio militare, erano nella Prima Divisione di Cavalleria - Guardia Nazionale della Pennsylvania (P.N.G.).
Non riesco a capire dove furono in quegli anni, in Usa o fuori Usa? Avevano partecipato alla guerra?

Dopo il 1920 scompaiono... io non ho più trovato nessun censimento... (???)
Da una notizia arrivata fino a me, ho saputo che lavoravano con i cavalli, facevano molte corse, specialmente in Florida.
Ralph Bisi era anche un "pianista", suonava il piano per i film muti...

Purtroppo i discendenti americani di Ralph non ricordono altro, sono troppo giovani e le notizie sono andate perse... fra l'altro lui non si sposò e non avendo figli la discendenza si è fermata...

Per questo motivo gradirei trovare i discendenti di Bruce B. McIntire, da loro potrei avere molte notizie dei due partners e magari qualche foto, forse potrebbe esistere ancora qualche figlio anziano di Bruce... oppure i nipoti, se si sposò... (???).
Trovare il suo matrimonio sarebbe utile per vedere chi era la moglie oppure trovare un cesimento per sapere riguardo ai figli... Il fatto è che chissà dove viveva, era sempre in giro senza fissa dimora?

Lui avrebbe oggi 116 anni, forse sulla rubrica del telefono di Pittsburgh (Carnegie ?) ci saranno ancora sue notizie? Non ho idea se in Usa il nominativo dell'intestatario del telefono viene cancellato una volta defunto... ma i discendenti rimangono...

Mille grazie Tressa !

Ciao

Here is the Military Record of Bruce B. McIntire. It will tell you where he was assigned during his time in the National Guard (I believe he was in the OHIO guard)
It looks like he served in FRANCE during the war.
I searched for BIS in this record, but only found a PETRO BISI from Akron, Ohio. Maybe a cousin? Maybe how Ralph and Bruce became acquainted?
Scroll down for his name...

Ciao Tressa,
molto importante questa informazione riguardo il servizio militare di Bruce !!!

Peccato che non c'è anche Ralph Bisi !!!
Forse lui era "Pennsylvania Guard"...

Come posso trovare notizie anche su di lui? Tu hai un'idea dove posso scrivere per avere informazioni riguardo il servizio militare del mio antenato?

Tante grazie, apprezzo molto il tuo aiuto.

Here is a copy of a Pennsylvania, Veterans Burial Card, for Ralph E. Bisi
It lists his company as "Headquarters Co. 107 F.A." ARMY - and his rank as Pfc (private, first class). The F.A. could be "Field Artillery" :-)
I found some information about the Pennsylvania National Guard in WWI which I have linked and quoted for you below.
Based on the "107 FA" designation (and this is only a guess) and the information in the wikipedia link about the Pennsylvania National Guard in WWI, it would appear that Ralph and Bruce were both fighting in France, possibily at the same time...

Burial Card - Ralph Bisi
Pennsylvania, Veterans Burial Cards, 1777-1999 about Ralph E Bisi
Name: Ralph E Bisi
Birth Date: 1893
Death Date: 11 Jan 1959
Age: 66
Military Branch: Army
Cemetery Name: Calvary Cemetery
Cemetery Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Information about the Pennsylvania National Guard from wikipedia...
The 28th Infantry Division ("Keystone"[1]) is a unit of the Army National Guard and is the oldest division-sized unit in the armed forces of the United States.[2][3] The division was officially established in 1879 and was later redesignated as the 28th Division in 1917, after the entry of America into the First World War. It continues its service today as part of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard.
The 28th Division traces its history from the briefly active 7th Division, formed in May 1917.[This was the date of Ralph's beginning of service on the burial card] In July 1917 or later, the division was renamed the 28th Division.[7] It was activated in September 1917. Its initial organization included the 55th Infantry Brigade (109th and 110th Infantry Regiments) and the 56th Infantry Brigade (111th and 112th Infantry Regiments).[8] During World War I it was involved in the Meuse-Argonne, Champagne-Marne, Aisne-Marne, Oise-Aisne, and Ypres-Lys (FA) operations. During the war it took a total of 14,139 casualties (KIA-2,165 ; WIA-11,974). An honor battalion of Pennsylvania National Guardsmen of the "Iron Division" (These are not soldiers, these are iron men. Gen. Pershing) dedicated the Pennsylvania World War Memorial in Argonne, France, in 1928.

I think you might want to contact the Pennsylvania National Guard to inquire of Ralph's military service...

The majority of the officers and enlisted men were from the State of Pennsylvania. On November 15th the division was reorganized to conform to the new Tables of Organization.

The division commenced leaving the States April 21, 1918, moving through Camp Upton. It landed at Calais May 18th and trained with the British in the vicinity of Nielles les Blequin for about two weeks. It then moved to Gonesse where it trained with the French for another two weeks' period, and then moved to a sector near the Marne.

On July 1, 1918, two platoons of the 11th Infantry took part in an attack on hill 204. On July 16th part of the infantry entered the line on the Marne River and the entire division was in sector on the Ourcq river by July 27, 1918.

The division was relieved on the night of July 30th-31st, and from then to August 6th was in rest in the vicinity of Jaulgonne on the Marne. On the night of August 6th-7th, it again entered the line on the Vesle river, the sector extending from about Courlandon on the east to Fismes on the west. Here it remained actively engaged until Sept. 8th, when it was relieved by a French division.

Upon relief of the division, it moved to a position south of the Argonne forest, and on Sept. 20th took part of the sector extending from Boureuilles on the east to Cote 285 on the west. It was one of the attacking divisions in the offensive of Sept. 26th, pushing as far as Chatel Chehery, where it was relieved on Oct. 9th. It then moved by bus to an area northeast of Commercy.

On Oct. 16th it took over a sector near Thiaucourt extending from northeast to Jaulny on the east to the southern end of Etany de Lachaussee on the west. It held this sector until the signing of the armistice and then went to the divisional training area.

To include May 15, 1919, the division's casualties were 2,531 battle deaths, and 13,746 wounded. Seven hundred and twenty-six individuals of this division were taken prisoners by the enemy.
