World War II Draft Registration: Fred Joseph Axe

Fred Joseph AXE was born March 22, 1882 in Jay County, Indiana.  He married December 25, 1903 in Jay County, Indiana to Amanda A. METZNER, daughter of William F. and Mary Ann (HALEY) METZNER.  He was a farmer, and census records place him in Bearcreek Township, Jay County, Indiana.

The Mr. William AXE listed as a contact on his draft registration was his son.  Fred and Amanda had 3 children: Ruth, Mary and William.  At the time of this registration, his wife may have been deceased, as I do not have a death date for Amanda.

His physical description lists him at 5'10", grey eyes and hair, light brown complexion, weighing 190 lbs.
