If the CARELTON M DEVINE you are looking for was born in 1929 in New
Jersey and lived for a time in Mass., I believe he has since passed
away. If you are convinced that this is the same person and you are
interested in this information I can post it for you as an answer.

Dear bettyboo1512-ga;

Very well then, I will post it for you because I too believe this is
the same person. You see, there is a public database called the Social
Security Death Index which lists many (if not most) people whose
Social Security records indicate a death. Anyone can access it and
search for people to see if they are listed among the deceased
cardholders. The database can be found here:


Searching for CARLETON DEVINE the only result that returns is CARLETON
M. DEVINE leading me to believe that with the unusual spelling of the
first name, the matching middle initial and the approximate date of
birth (age) you recall that it is fairly probable this is the same
individual, especially if the other information seems to match what
you might remember:

BORN 20 JUN 1929
DIED 5 AUG 2000
LAST LOCATION OF RESIDENCE: Moorestown, Burlington [County], NJ
His social security number was issued to him by the state of
Massachusetts, which very well might have been his place of birth, if
this helps jog your memory at all.

This record also very closely matches one other reference I found for
a CARELTON DEVINE with the same unusual spelling of the first name:

“…mourns the death of his good friend and fellow service veteran
Carleton Devine (COM'58), who died on Aug. 8, 2000…”

(If this were a coincidence, I’d expect to see this Carleton Devine’s
name in the Death Index also, but isn’t, so I suspect that are one and
the same. Also note that on this page is an email address for Mr.
Devine’s friend who may have some further information).

If this does turn out to be the same person (and I am relatively
certain it is) I am sorry to have had to deliver the sad news and you
have my condolences. I so hope we meet again under happier

Below you will find that I have carefully defined my search strategy
for you in the event that you need to search for more information. By
following the same type of searches that I did you may be able to
enhance the research I have provided even further. I hope you find
that that my research exceeds your expectations. If you have any
questions about my research please post a clarification request prior
to rating the answer. Otherwise, I welcome your rating and your final
comments and I look forward to working with you again in the near
future. Thank you for bringing your question to us.

Best regards;
