In honor of our nation’s birthday, I thought I’d highlight a relative who’d served his country during wartime. Since I shared Daniel’s gravestone photo last week, I thought I’d share his WWI draft card today.
Although the image is small, you can see that his full name was Daniel Edgar Hoover and he lived in Karthaus, Pennsylvania. He was born 16 Jul 1887 in Karthaus. He was a single, white, laborer who’d never served in the military before. He was short with a medium build, blue eyes and light brown hair.
These draft registration cards are available to subscribers on Ancestry.com.
