My great aunt, Mary Graf Tritten, married William August Tritten in 1913. William registered for the World War I draft registration in 1917 and listed wife and children as the reason for not serving.
The above draft registration shows William was born 16 June 1888, in Onekama, Michigan or at least I think that is what it says. What do you think?
He was employed as a carpenter with E. M. Power Co. at Junction Dam, which is now Tippy Dam.
William and Mary Tritten had eight children: Ruby, Evelyn, Fred, Lloyd, Helen, Lester, Verna, and Jack.
