Hi Susan,

You don't want the Lester born in 1892, as he passed in 1920. His middle name was Reynolds.

Your Lester just shaved his age on census.

WWI Draft Card shows Lester Roy Bender, born 5 May 1889. Occupation is Printer. Wife is a dependent.

WWII Card shows that he was born 8 May 1889, in York, PA. Employer, U.S. Gov't, York Post Office. Person who will always know his address, Mrs. Lester R. Bender. (Big help!)


Name: Lester R. Bender
SSN: 185-34-8456
Last Residence: 17404 York, York, Pennsylvania, United States of America
Born: 8 May 1890
Died: 15 Aug 1970
State (Year) SSN issued: Pennsylvania (1960-1961)

The 1930 census shows he was 1st married @ age 24. That conflicts with the below, but ties into the above. Also, the 1930 shows that Mona, age 33, was 18 when she 1st married. Looks like she fibbed on the license.

Name: Lester R. Bender
Event: Marriage
Event Date: 25 Aug 1915
Event Place: York, York, Pennsylvania
Age: 26
Estimated Birth Year: 1889
Spouse: W. Mona Washer

Make sense to you?
