|David Crockett Morris 4 Mar 1891 - 6 Jul 1932|
Although Tobe had five sons, only one of these offsprings’ WWI draft registration has been located. Thomas, his fourth son, born 15 Dec 1873, registered for the draft at the age of 45 years old. His youngest son born in 1879 was eligble for the registration, but, as of yet, no record has been found.
Why Did Thomas Register?
The second draft registration began June 5, 1917. It included men who reached the age of 21 after June 1917; born between 1896 - 1897. (A supplemental registration was held on August 24, 1918, for those who turned 21 years old after June 5, 1918).
The third registration was held on September 12, 1918, for all men ages 18 through 45. This included those born between 1873 - 1900.
 Cleveland, born in 1868, may not have deemed it necessarily to register due to his advance age, as with Schuyler, whose draft registration was not found in Nevada, Kansas or Missouri.
 Crowder’s service information has not been researched.
