Newspaper Birth Announcement, Frank and Elsie's first born:
Morgan County IN Archives History-Books; Abstract Of Births, Deaths, Marriages, Etc; Morgan Co IN Newspapers 1900-1903, Oct 10, 1901:
"Born to Mr. and Mrs. FRANK MOSIER, a daughter."
(Note: This is Doris Thelma Mosier, who sadly died at six months of age, 10 Apr 1902.)

1920 Census Indpls, Marion Co IN, Jan 11:
-John, 40, owns home, can read & write, born IN, parents born IN, works in a meat market.
-Elsie J, 37, can read & write, born IN, parents born IN, no occupation listed.
-Raymond E, 16, can read & write, born IN, (occupation is hard to read, but looks like he) works in a 'store', probably his Dad's meat market.
Alton, 13, can read & write, born IN, goes to school.
Norina R, 10.
Irene, 6.
Ethel, 2.
James E, 7 mos.

Grandpa registered for the WWI Draft in 1917, but there is no proof he actually served. On his registration, he listed his birth year as 1879, in his own handwriting. Grandpa owned and operated a meat market.

My Dad never knew his father since Grandpa passed away just two weeks after my Dad was born, dying of Diabetes Mellitus with cardiac failure. Grandpa was laid to rest on 22 Oct 1926; his son Alton Leon died of the same ailment at age 20 yrs.
