Yes, that is the Mervin K. Flowers b. 27 Mar 1920, etc. I have his obit, etc. The marriage to Esther Vernon is a newly discovered first marriage. I have the Marriage Certificate and Marriage License Application coming from Dauphin County.

Esther's family members listed in 1930 Census for Hampden Township, Cumberland County are:

John Vernon age 40 - 27 when married, so married in 1916 -1917, Military Veteran and Railroad Brakeman
Ruth E. Vernon age 33 - wife - 19 when married so in 1916
Effie R (Ruth?) Vernon - daughter age 17
Ester (sp)L Vernon - daughter age 13
Margaret J Vernon - daughter age 11
Marian J Vernon - daughter age 9
Ella M Vernon - daughter age 7

This correlates with information I have for this family from the 1920 Census. Thanks for the WWI draft card and previous census data on the Vernons - this will be a great help when I start chasing that line.

Thanks for your assistance !!

--Mike
