Birth: Oct. 27, 1891
Sewell
Fayette County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Dec. 27, 1966
Alleghany County
Virginia, USA

==Death==
Died at 10:45 p.m., in
Chesapeake & Ohio Hospital,
416 E. Ridgeway St.,
Clifton Forge, Virginia, Alleghany Co.

==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.

==Medical==
Jesse, age 25, single on 1917 W.W.I Draft
Card, claimed exemption due to a Lost Right
Arm.
