Midgetts Who Won Life Saving Medal
Posted by: Rick McDaniel (ID *****6781) Date: December 13, 2005 at 11:48:07

I am doing research for a magazine article on the members of the Midgett family who have won the Gold Life Saving Medal from the Coast Guard.

They were:
John H. Midgett, Cape Hatteras LSS, NC
Rasmus S. Midgett, Gull Shoal LSS, NC
John A. Midgett, Chicamacomico LBS, NC and crew
Zion S. Midgett
Arthur V. Midgett
Leroy S. Midgett
Clarence E. Midgett

John A. Midgett, Jr. was the son of John A. Sr., who was also in the US Life-Saving Service (a predecessor of the Coast Guard).
Arthur V. Midgett's father was Rasmus S. Midgett, who also won the Gold Life Saving Medal.

I feel pretty certain that these other Midgetts (Leroy, Clarence and Zion) are kin to John, Arthur and Rasmus, at least distantly. Does anyone have any info on this?

Thanks,
Rick McDaniel
(PS- I'm a magazine writer, no kin to the Midgetts)
