In Reply to: WWI uniform & George Ball or Pearl Blanch Ball from Minnesota by Priscilla Halcomb of 9041

Priscilla:
I am not related.
I believe the 'A' on the uniforms indicates American Expeditionary Forces, which means they served abroad in WWI. The 'V' shaped thing, I don't know; the US on the collar was standard for the uniforms.
the only George Ball, from MN that I can find was born in Apr 1892 in MN; in the 1900 census, he appears towit:
Agency SD, 1900
Geor. W. Ball 30
Nancy L. 31 wife
Pearl 13 dau
Francis 12 son
GEORGIE W. 8 Apr 1892
Eddie 6
Allie 4
ADelbrt 2 dau
This George married a Quincy (first name) and he died 21 May 1949, Marion Co. Oregon.
I know you said your Georgie was b. 1870-early 1880's..but none of the other 9 George Ball's from MN served in the Military.
