Raymond Joseph Tossas, Fought in the Spanish- American War [(information passed on to me by word of mouth 22nd of December in San Juan, Puerto Rico by my adopted Mother and 1st Cousin- Jean (D´Arcy Tossas) Maculaitis, while viewing "The Morro"/ "The Fort "- A Legendary Tourist Site, in Old San Juan] and was also, ordered to collect the fallen corpses off of the battlefields of WWI, WWII. He was also, ordered to remove and collect the precious metal from the teeth of said, corpses. It is said, that is where he created his idea to invent the first porcelain dentures prototype.
