Hi,

World War I Draft Registration Card:

Name: Robert Obenchain Rockwood
County: Wharton
State: Texas
Birthplace: Texas;United States of America
Birth Date: 14 Apr 1889
Race: Caucasian (White)
FHL Roll Number: 1983776

Military Service: Rank/Sargent Mjr., Branch/Inft., Years/4
Height/Build: Medium/Medium

I believe the below is Robert O. & the parental birthplaces are in error. Also, he's 30, single & living with his father & mother in 1920, which would make his age of marriage incorrect. Unless he was really married, divorced or widowed in 1920.

1930: Memphis, Shelby Co., Tennessee
351 Cleveland
