|Birth: ||Jan. 31, 1895|
|Death: ||Nov. 12, 1957|
Some records indicate the spelling of his middle name as "Ernst", and some as "Ernest". Since he and my grandmother named my father "Ernest" and spelled his name that way, I am going to go with "Ernest" until I locate a copy of his birth certificate.
In addition, although his marker indicates "Oklahoma", he served in World War I as a soldier from Illinois, not Oklahoma. He lived in Oklahoma at the time of his death.

Note: There is a one-day difference in the date of birth on the memorial between the marker and the death certificate used to set this up. Until I locate his birth certificate, I will leave things as they are, and leave this note for explanation.
