|Birth: ||Sep. 30, 1895|
Only the years were shown: 1895-1951, on the grave marker.
It also said:
PA (for Pennsylvania)
PVT 168 Infantry 42 DIV
World War One
It is most likely that he was in the U.S. Army, but the U.S. Marines also had infantry, that were foot soldiers.
His military headstone application didn't clarify that.
(Company L was also on the application for his military headstone),which was submitted by his wife Mamie, on Oct. 25, 1951. At that time, Mamie lived at 4898 Edmonton, in Detroit, Michigan. This record also stated the following:
Frank enlisted on 05-27-1918 discharged on 04-07-1919.
It also showed his date of birth as: 09-30-1895, and that he was born in Pennsylvania.
The 1940 Census showed:
His occupation: Maintenance repairman - auto factory
Address in 1940: 5209 Joy Rd., Detroit, Michigan
His wife Mamie lived with him there. So they were
married from at least 1940 - 1951, when he passed away.
No children lived with them at the time. Frank was close to 45 years old then, so any possible children were probably grown and living elsewhere.
