Raymond Graf WWII Draft Registration

Source: Ancestry.com. U.S., World War II Draft Cards Young Men, 1940-1947 [database on-line]. Lehi, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2011. Raymond Graf accessed 7 August 2022.

World War I draft registration cards can be bountiful in information for how little they are.  They provide clues to a family researcher that will help one find more information. 

The card above is for the husband of my maternal aunt, Leona Inez Fredricks.  Leona was the daughter of Otto August Fredricks and Daisy Ellen Graf. You may notice that Virginia Marie Graf (nee Miller) is listed as Raymond's wife. Leona was Raymond's second wife.

Raymond Paul Graf, son of Henry Jerome Graf and Effie Bell White Graf, filled out his draft card on 16 October 1940 at the age of 25.

As far as I know, the information provided on Raymond's card is accurate.
