I have a photo of John A. Butler in his WWI uniform. On the back to the photo is says says, Pvt John A. Butler, Sparta, Ohio. I found his military record online which states his enlistment date was May 24, 1918, wounded in action severely Oct 1918, Honorable discharge March 19, 1919. This photo was found in a collection of photos that my step-father has that belonged to his Turner family who lived in Sparta. I'm not sure if John Butler was related to the Turner family, but I intend to keep the orginal photo but would be happy to scan and e-mail a copy to anyone who is related to John. On the Social Security death index it lists John as being born May 26, 1894 and died Feb 1970 in Sparta, Ohio.
