Amanuensis Monday - Leon's WWI Draft Registration

Unfortunately for us, there is very little we can make out of this 1918 registration.

We are able to make out his name, Leon Earl Loper.

Moving down, we are able to just make out his birthdate, 04 March 1900.

We can tell that there is a mrk of some kind under RACE in the WHITE box.

Unfortunately for us, nothing else is legible down to his signature, which we can just make out.

We can see that [on the back of the card], he is a man of medium height, slender build, with brown eyes and dark hair.

Lastly we able to see that the card was filled out on 12 September 1918 in Craford County, Pennsylvania.

Leon died 19 July 1946.

He was the husband of my Aunt Margaret. He ws the father of two children, Mary Ann [1941-2010] and Robert Leon "Bob".

He is buried at Hillcrest Memorial Park, Mercer County, Pennsylvania.

Aunt Margaret is now 97 years old and resides with in Ohio.
