Thank you very much for the helpful response.
We did know that William Edward DORRIS, my grandfather, was NOT a WW-I veteran. But we do NOT know whether he registered for the 1918 WW-I draft, which, I think, might have required him to give details of his parents [JOHN DORRIS and MISS PAINTER], so that I might be able to break through the brick wall to find some evidence of them. In 1918 he turned 44, we think, and thus would have been of the age [up to age 45] required to register for the WW-I draft. He was a mystery ... and can sometimes be found as 'W.E.', 'WILL', or in one instance "Burrell". The latter being unexplainable except by possible census error (1900).
Again, thank you for your helpful response.
