Friday's Council Tree Chapter, NSDAR
RE: Chester Franklin Baldwin
Hello Mary,
Thanks for your inquiry regarding Chester Franklin Baldwin and his military service status. It appears the designation as a veteran is in error. Our research shows that he registered for the WWI Draft. However, we do not find any evidence of him serving. Perhaps someone didn't know that registering was not the same as serving? We have checked Ancestry.com military records, Fold3 military records, and the 1930 Federal Census where Chester did not report being a military veteran. His 1930 neighbor just above him did say "Yes" to this question so the fact that Chester's column is blank tells me that he was NOT a WWI veteran. Do you believe that he WAS a veteran? If you have any other evidence please let us know. Pat Johnson in Fort Collins, Colorado
