Not a problem Annette, I'm used to the usual problems volunteers are often given (or not given) to work with. I realized tho that we had one when I couldn't find James Strouse on census records. If he was the son of William F. & Eva M., he was not born 'til after the 1930 census. William was never in the military per the 1930 census. Now the immediate problem. Which James Faddis? Ancestry's WWI draft reg. cards has 3 to consider. A Leroy James Faddis, b 1894, registered in city of Chester, Delaware co, Pa. and a James Venoe Faddis Jr. who registered twice. One in Chester co, Pa. & again where he was employed in Philadelphia, Philadelphia co, Pa. He was single, born Mar. 14, 1896 and was a fireman for the Pa. r.r. As for the object your b-i-l has, I have no idea what it might be. but if it says "souvenier 1917" I doubt it's a military related item. Maybe something from a state fair or the prize in a box of CrackerJack. (Just kidding kid, just kidding.)Point is, that's nothing to go on unless it can be ientified. You might want to look for these two Faddis boys on the 1930 census. Colimns 30 & 31 are military related colums. Dick
