William Addison Genther1,2

ID#2687, b. 6 May 1890, d. November 1977
Father: Louis Carl F. Genther
Mother: Emma Elizabeth Dakan

Birth date: 6 May 1890.2,3,4 Addison's WWI draft registration card shows his birth as 06 May 1891, believed to simply be an error as his age would have been 26 rather than 27 as reported on the card. Using 1890 as his correct year of birth, his actual ages jive with the reported ages in the 1900 and 1910 federal censuses as well as his draft registrations for both World Wars.1 The year 1890 is also supported by the Social Security Death Index.4

Birth place: Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia.2
