Military Monday : Floyd LeMaster, World War II Draft Registration, 1942

Working my way through the hints in the Ancestry database for World War II Draft Registrations, 1942 and located this registration in Jay County, Indiana for Floyd LeMaster, my paternal granduncle. U.S., World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations, Inc., 2010. Original data : United States, Selective Service System. Selective Service Registration Cards, World War II: Fourth Registration. Records of the Selective Service System, Record Group Number 147. National Archives and Records Administration., Floyd LeMaster, Jay County, Indiana.

This draft record adds to the information I've collected about Floyd, who was the son of Luman Cooper Lemasters and Barbara Isabel Wehrly.  Floyd's draft registration gives his exact date of birth as February 2, 1894 in Jay County, Indiana.

Floyd was 48 years old at the time of the registration, and his nearest living relative was his wife, Opal (Gagle) LeMaster of the same place.  Floyd's address was listed as Jay County, Indiana but the postal address was Rural Route 3, Fort Recovery, Ohio. His telephone was Salamonia. This area of Jay County was served by Fort Recovery as the nearest post office.

Floyd was a self-employed farmer in Jay County, Indiana.  

Physically, Floyd is described as having a light complexion, white male, 5'7", with brown eyes and brown hair.  He weighed 165 lbs.
