Hi. I'm not related to this family. Milton may have moved to NY. Here is a WWI draft card that might belong to him:

I found an obit for this Milton at

Gloversville & Johnstown NY Leader Republican 1939 (Thurs, 3 Aug) - Troy - Milton Pulford, 60, of Cropseyville, an employee of the Great Lakes Dredge & Dock company, died last night of a heart attack while in an automobile salesroom at Congress & Sixth streets, Troy. He was negociating for puchase of a new machine. He is survived by his wife and a sister, Mrs. Harry Noakes of Canada.

No mention of children, so that might not be him in 1930. Hope this helps. Annie
