Personal information

Henry J. Dykstra had changed his last name to Ward and raised a family of six with his wife in the Bronx, New York, but changed his name back to his birth last name when joining Bushranger before she sailed from New York on her last voyage. It took the War Shipping Administration four years to realize this name change and could only then inform his wife about his fate. Henry had also fought in World War One.
