==Double Birth Records==
Jesse has 2-Birth Records, both with the
exact DOB of 10-27-1891, being;
a) Hinton, W.Va., Summers Co.,
b) Sewell, W.Va., Fayette Co.
The Fayette record was completed by
Affidavit. His Parents Married 2-years earlier on 10-3-1889, at Fayette, thus this would seem to lend favor to Fayette being correct. Perhaps his true place of birth comes from his Draft Cards for both the 1917 + 1942 registrations, in which he gives his place of birth as Sewell, W.Va., Fayette. My conclusion is to accept Fayette until new proof says otherwise.
Jesse, age 25, single on 1917 W.W.I Draft
Card, claimed exemption due to a Lost Right
Per 1917 + 1942 Draft Cards, he worked for
Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad, as a Hostler;
For the 1920 & 1930 Census, he's also a
Steam R/R Hostler.
