John Francis Schils1

M, b. 22 December 1893, d. 20 December 1962
     John Francis Schils was born on 22 December 1893 at Michigan.1

     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. John filled out a draft card for World War I on 5 June 1917 (at age 23), while living at 415 South Charlotte, Escanaba, Delta, Michigan. He was employed as baker and described as height, medium and medium build with gray eyes and light brown hair..2

     John, at age 33, married Helga E. Nelson at age 23, daughter of Johan Alfred Nelson and Louise Walstad, on 25 May 1927 at Escanaba, Delta, Michigan.1

     The U.S. officially entered World War II on 8 December 1941 following an attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Just about a year before that, in October 1940, President Roosevelt had signed into law the first peacetime selective service draft in U.S. history, due to rising world conflicts. After the U.S. entered WWII a new selective service act required that all men between ages 18 and 65 register for the draft. Between November 1940 and October 1946, over 10 million American men were registered. The Fourth Registration, often referred to as the "old man's registration", was conducted on 27 April 1942 and registered men who born on or between 28 April 1877 and 16 February 1897 - men who were between 45 and 64 years old - and who were not already in the military. John filled out a draft card for World War II on 27 April 1942 (at age 48), while living at 513 South 17th Street, Escanaba, Delta, Michigan. He was working for the U. S. Post Office.3



     John Francis Schils died on 20 December 1962 at Escanaba, Delta, Michigan, at age 68.1 He was buried in Lakeview Cemetery at Escanaba, Delta, Michigan.4

Fritz Bernard Sundstrom1

M, b. 8 April 1896, d. January 1967
     Fritz Bernard Sundstrom was born on 8 April 1896 at Worcester, Massachusetts.1

     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. Fritz filled out a draft card for World War I on 5 June 1917 (at age 21), while living at 21 Tatman Street, Worcester, Worcester, Massachusetts. He was employed as corset cutter, Ivy Corset Shop, Worcester and described as height, tall and medium build with brown eyes and dark hair..2

     Fritz, married Agnes A. Larsson, daughter of Edwin Olof Larsson and Matilda Peterson, circa 1919.1

     The U.S. officially entered World War II on 8 December 1941 following an attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Just about a year before that, in October 1940, President Roosevelt had signed into law the first peacetime selective service draft in U.S. history, due to rising world conflicts. After the U.S. entered WWII a new selective service act required that all men between ages 18 and 65 register for the draft. Between November 1940 and October 1946, over 10 million American men were registered. The Fourth Registration, often referred to as the "old man's registration", was conducted on 27 April 1942 and registered men who born on or between 28 April 1877 and 16 February 1897 - men who were between 45 and 64 years old - and who were not already in the military. Fritz filled out a draft card for World War II in 1942, while living at Worcester, Worcester, Massachusetts. He was working for the Ivy Corset Company.3

     Fritz Bernard Sundstrom died at age 70, in January 1967, at Massachusetts.4

Carl Martin Edstrom1

M, b. 9 December 1898, d. 5 January 1996
Carl M. Edstrom, husband of Elvira V. Larson
     Carl Martin Edstrom was born on 9 December 1898 at Worcester, Massachusetts.1,2

     Carl, married Elvira Violet Larson, daughter of Edwin Olof Larsson and Matilda Peterson.1

     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. Carl filled out a draft card for World War I on 12 September 1918 (at age 19), while living at 80 Perry Avenue, Worcester, Worcester, Massachusetts. He was employed as laborer for the Norton Company, New Bond Street, Worcester and described as height, blank and blank build with grey eyes and brown hair..3



     Carl Martin Edstrom died on 5 January 1996 at Massachusetts at age 97.1,4 He was buried in All Faiths Cemetery at Worcester, Worcester, Massachusetts.5

Census

     Carl appeared on the 1940 Federal Census of Worcester, Worcester, Massachusetts, enumerated 14 April 1940. Carl, his wife Elvira and their daughter, Virginia were living with his mother, Carolina. Carl was working as a clerk at a retail store. Their grandchildren, Virginia M. were listed as living in the household As an item of interest, a dollar in 1940 would equal $16.26 in the year 2012. A $3.50 gallon of milk in 2012 would have cost $.21 cents in 1940.6

Carl Joseph Nyman1

M, b. 19 March 1886, d. 1958
Carl J. Nyman, husband of Signe O. Holmgren
     Carl Joseph Nyman was born on 19 March 1886 at Östergötland, Vist, Sverige.1

     Carl, at age 29, married Signe Olivia Holmgren at age 26, daughter of Nils Olson Holmgren and Emma Karolina Larsdotter, on 24 June 1915 at Worcester, Worcester, Massachusetts.2

     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.

He was employed as foreman for Streeter and Sons, 1 Glenwood Street, Worcester, Massachusetts and described as height, tall and medium build with light blue eyes and light brown hair..3

     The U.S. officially entered World War II on 8 December 1941 following an attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Just about a year before that, in October 1940, President Roosevelt had signed into law the first peacetime selective service draft in U.S. history, due to rising world conflicts. After the U.S. entered WWII a new selective service act required that all men between ages 18 and 65 register for the draft. Between November 1940 and October 1946, over 10 million American men were registered. The Fourth Registration, often referred to as the "old man's registration", was conducted on 27 April 1942 and registered men who born on or between 28 April 1877 and 16 February 1897 - men who were between 45 and 64 years old - and who were not already in the military. Carl filled out a draft card for World War II on 27 April 1942 (at age 56), while living at 16 View Street, Worcester, Worcester, Massachusetts.4
