     Charles Gustave Oberg, son of Eric Oberg and Maria Nilsdotter, was born on 10 March 1887 at Stambaugh, Iron, Michigan.1

     Charles, married Ethel Vivien Marsia.

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. The first registration was for men between the ages of 21 and 31. As a result, this first registration included men born between June 5, 1886 and June 5, 1896. As World War I continued to escalate, the United States instituted a second draft registration. The second registration was for men who had turned 21 since June 5, 1917, so it added men born between June 5, 1896 and June 5, 1897. Two months later, a supplemental registration was held on August 24, 1918 for men who had become 21 years of age since June 5, 1918, adding the names of men who were born between June 5, 1897 and August 24, 1897. With no end in sight for World War I, the United States instituted it's third and final registration. It included all men who were between the ages of 18 and 21, and 31 to 45 years of age. This added younger men than the previous registrations, those who were born between September 12, 1897 and September 12, 1900; and added an older group of men, born between September 12, 1873 and September 12, 1888. Charles filled out a draft card for World War I on 5 June 1917 (at age 30), while living at 312 Maple Street, Iron River, Iron, Michigan.

M, b. 9 October 1892, d. 2 December 1973
     Walter George Pearson was born on 9 October 1892 at Escanaba, Delta, Michigan.

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. The first registration was for men between the ages of 21 and 31. As a result, this first registration included men born between June 5, 1886 and June 5, 1896. As World War I continued to escalate, the United States instituted a second draft registration. The second registration was for men who had turned 21 since June 5, 1917, so it added men born between June 5, 1896 and June 5, 1897. Two months later, a supplemental registration was held on August 24, 1918 for men who had become 21 years of age since June 5, 1918, adding the names of men who were born between June 5, 1897 and August 24, 1897. With no end in sight for World War I, the United States instituted it's third and final registration. It included all men who were between the ages of 18 and 21, and 31 to 45 years of age. This added younger men than the previous registrations, those who were born between September 12, 1897 and September 12, 1900; and added an older group of men, born between September 12, 1873 and September 12, 1888. Walter filled out a draft card for World War I on 5 June 1917 (at age 24), while living at Escanaba, Delta, Michigan. He was employed as a jeweler and described as height, 5' 6 3/4' and medium build with blue eyes and black hair..1

Joseph Henry Beshel

M, b. 12 May 1883, d. 17 July 1920
     Joseph Henry Beshel was born on 12 May 1883 at Iowa.

     Joseph, married Hilda Anderson, daughter of August Andersson and Adeline Marthina Cristensen.

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. The first registration was for men between the ages of 21 and 31. As a result, this first registration included men born between June 5, 1886 and June 5, 1896. As World War I continued to escalate, the United States instituted a second draft registration. The second registration was for men who had turned 21 since June 5, 1917, so it added men born between June 5, 1896 and June 5, 1897. Two months later, a supplemental registration was held on August 24, 1918 for men who had become 21 years of age since June 5, 1918, adding the names of men who were born between June 5, 1897 and August 24, 1897. With no end in sight for World War I, the United States instituted it's third and final registration. It included all men who were between the ages of 18 and 21, and 31 to 45 years of age. This added younger men than the previous registrations, those who were born between September 12, 1897 and September 12, 1900; and added an older group of men, born between September 12, 1873 and September 12, 1888. Joseph filled out a draft card for World War I on 12 September 1918 (at age 35), while living at Lake, Illinois. He was employed as farmer for a canning company and described as height, tall and medium build with blue eyes and brown hair..1



     Joseph Henry Beshel died on 17 July 1920 at Fremont, Lake, Illinois, at age 37.
