SAMUELS, George 1877-1942
I have information from the VA for anyone researching George SAMUELS, born 01 January 1877 in Bloomington, Illinois and died 01 August 1942 in Des Moines, Iowa.
The paperwork lists his father's name as Pius SAMUELS (died in 1893 at the age of 65) and his mother as Martha PASH (died in 1894 at the age of 63 of typhoid-malaria fever, birthplace was Kentucky).
George enlisted in the military on 28 June 1898. He was a Corporal in Co. G 8th Reg. Illinois Vol. Inf. and was a Vet of the Spanish-American War.
The information I have includes detailed hospital information, a copy of a marriage certificate for he and a wife by the name of Ella JEFFERSON and Ella's application for death compensation or pension.
I would love to share this information with someone researching this family.
