Were there city directories for the area surrounding Fort Bayard for 1915 and 1916 that would have listed those stationed at the fort and their families?
I know my Rene Eugene Scheffer was in the Philippines in 1910. He married Blanche Mathias in 1912 at Fort Des Moines, IA. They had 1 child born in Des Moines in 1913.
He died 4 Jan. 1917 of TB of the throat but was returned to the Cavalry Cemetery in Fort Des Moines for burial. His son was born in Des Moines a few months after his death.

But between 1913 and 1917, I'm not sure where he was, how long he had had TB, or how long he was in Fort Bayard.
Any help would be appreciated.
