Michael "Mike" Lautar1,2

ID#1954, b. 29 September 1882, d. February 1964
Father: not yet identified, but reportedly born in Austria-Hungary.
Mother: not yet identified, but reportedly born in Austria-Hungary.2

Birth date: 29 September 1882
Birth place: Austria-Hungary Mike's draft card for World War II shows Austria as his birthplace.3 On the 1930 census, the enumerator wrote Austria-Hungary as his country of birth, but a line was drawn through it and Yugoslavia was written above.2 A little bit of history is helpful for understanding these differences.

The powerful Hapsburg family built up an empire known as Austria, but in 1867 the region of Hungary wanted more power. The Hapsburgs were forced to split the empire into a dual monarchy. The two were governed separately, but when it came to war and foreign affairs, they operated as a unified empire called Austria-Hungary.4 Note that this split occurred approximately 15 years before Mike was born. The following quote from the BBC News history files helps explain further:5

"After Austria-Hungary was defeated in World War I, the Versailles peace treaties defined a new pattern of state boundaries in the Balkans. The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was founded. In 1929 King Alexander I changed the name of the state to Yugoslavia - land of the southern Slavs."6

As Mike was born during the existence of the Austria-Hungary empire, his reporting that he was born in Austria seems to indicate that he was from the region that remained under control of the Hapsburg family as opposed to the Hungarian region of the empire. By the time of the 1930 census, Austria-Hungary was incorporated into the state of Yugoslavia - which explains why Mike's reported birthplace of Austria Hungary was crossed out and replaced with Yugoslavia.

Commonly known as Mike.7

Michael married Rose "Rosie" (unknown).1

The U.S. officially entered World War II on 8 December 1941 following an attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. All men between ages 18 and 65 and not already in the military were required to register for the draft during one of six registration periods. The Fourth Registration, often referred to as the "old man's registration," was conducted on 27 April 1942 to register men who were between 45 and 64 years old. At age 59, Mike registered at Marshall County, West Virginia, and was described as follows: white, 5' 7", 180 lbs., hazel eyes, black hair, dark complexion, scar on left arm.3

As of 27 April 1942, when he registered for the draft, Mike was employed by Fostoria Glass Company located at 1200 First Street, Moundsville, West Virginia.3 He was living at 2010 Meighen Avenue, Moundsville, West Virginia.3

Mike died at age 81 in February 1964.8

William died from cancer circa 30 June 1918 at McMechen, Marshall County, West Virginia. The death register shows June 31 as his date of death - which of course is non-existent. I can only presume at this point that it was actually June 30.3

1840 U.S. Census, Virginia, Tyler County

ID#1973, b. 1 June 1840
Prior to the 1850 U.S. Census, the head of each household was the only individual identified by name. All members of a household were classified by gender into age ranges (and these fell into groupings by race and slavery) - from these breakdowns it is sometimes possible to extrapolate who the individuals were when info about the family is known from other sources. The households listed below show the classifications as reported, followed by names in italics when I have been able to determine them.

Note that there is a link for the head of most households that will take you to that individual's person page containing detailed information for him or her. If you click the link but your browser stays on this page, it indicates that there is no detailed person page included yet for that individual. An easy way to confirm that this is the case is to check for the person's name in the "Surname Index" - names only appear for people with a person page. Those types of links will gradually disappear as I continue adding people from my database.

Original spelling is retained in the information below - be aware that census records often contain many misspelled names.
