Sidney Dewitt Ailes: World War II Draft Registration

Sidney Dewitt AILES was born August 22, 1887 in Montra, Shelby County, Ohio, the son of John Forsyth and Rebecca Lovina (DRUMM) AILES. Sidney was my 2nd cousin 3 times removed, a descendant of Phillip YOUNG. His World War I Draft Registration card can be found here.

At the time of this registration, Sidney was employed by the Perry Township School Board in Pemberton, Ohio, where he was a teacher. The 1930 census lists his occupation as high school principal.

An interesting note to me is that his World War I draft registration, when he was a student at Ohio Northern University, stated that his left leg and arm were partially paralyzed. However, this registration reports no mention of this fact.

Sidney married January 1, 1913 to Lina BAKER. Lina was born January 1, 1886 Jackson Township, Shelby County, Ohio. They had five children. Lina died May 7, 1983 in Pemberton, Ohio. Sidney died November 27, 1971 in Pemberton, Ohio.
