Welcome Phyllis, I doubt if Oscar served in WWI. He would not have been drafted because of his age & nr. of dependents. Even if he tried to enlist I doubt they would have taken him for the same reason. As for Oscar prior to 1900 have you looked for his civil and/or church marriage record? I did find a La. born 5 y/o Oscar MIGUES in 1880 Iberia parish. (Ancestry's index) When you look at the census image it could well be McGuire. However, I did find this Migues household in 1870 as well but was the family surname altered at some point in time? Just things we sometimes have to consider in our research. Dick
