 A Special Customer Request. 
 Help Me find out about this airplane.  Is it a Curtiss Jenny?

 Can You Help Me?
I would love to find any information on this plane.  My Grandfather, James Siler, served in the Navy  between 1922 to 1926 or 27. He could have taken this picture at one of the Bases he was station at .  He was station in the Panama Canal and Off of the coast of China on a little island  and most of his time in San Diego any help would be great.  Thanks again  Randy  Meador.

If anyone knows anything about this plane or Mr. James Siler in the Navy,
please let me know at this link.

I noticed your interesting old picture of a US Navy biplane standing on the nose. It took some time to identify it mainly because of the ambiguous registration at the side of the fuselage which I first read as A-5314. Lists of these registration numbers gave no hit as this number was from a batch of Curtiss Flying Boats ordered by the Navy but cancelled at the end of WW1.
This machine has the Bureau No A-5814 at the side which defines it as a USA built de Havilland DH-4B. This DH-4B was from a small batch of machines [A-5809 till A-5814] taken over from the War department in exchange for 6 DH-4 planes at the Naval Aircraft Factory [NAF] for use by the US Marine Corps [USMC].
It is noted that A-5814 crashed on Haiti on October 5, 1921. The place is given as Sarte Dau, but unfortunately this is a place or writing of the place not known to Google Maps
I do not think that the picture of A-5814 gives a picture of the crash, as the damage of this nose stand is not that great and repair could be easily done. Nose stands were quite common, due to the state of the airfields (mud pools in rainy seasons) or due to the experience of the pilot.
So to summarize this is an US built de Havilland DH-4B in service with the US Marine Corps.
To get to know the life and times of the grandfather of James Tiler in the US Navy / USMC you could do a search in the US National Archives which hold all historical military service records
All the best

Research Notes

Out-of-work aviators flying out-of-work airplanes after the Great War. These  barnstormers, as they called themselves, were an American phenomenon - wandering  from east to west, performing in pastures, big city air shows, and Hollywood dramas.

The racer that Jimmy Doolittle flew to victory in the 1925 Schneider Cup

A Curtiss Jenny rounds a pylon during the National Guard Speed Race at Miller Field, New York, in 1926.

the Jenny used for training U.S. pilots during WWI and for mail service, barnstorming and flying circuses after the war.

Barr was a bush pilot in the '30s and '40s, carrying passengers, mail, and freight to remote villages, mining camps, and solitary trappers' cabins. He flew every plane from the Jenny to the Supercub, made more forced landings than he could remember, and once rebuilt his wrecked plane himself in order to fly it out of the wilderness.

The Curtiss JN-4 “Jenny” first entered service during WWI as a primary trainer for the fledgling US Army Air Corps. After the war, surplus Jennys found fame with enterprising barnstormers who crisscrossed the countryside performing air shows and giving awe-struck passengers their first taste of flight.
