In Response To: Winners, Part 3 ()
Tom, I have a LITTLE problem with a war of 1812 veteran hanging around in 1942...If he was BORN in 1812, he'd be 130, to have served, even as a young teen he'd be over 140.....seems just a TAD improbable doesn't it?? On the other hand, a child or spouse from his later years could be possible. (I know of one veteran of the Civil War and the Indian Wars, who had a forty year old wife when he was ninety)
Otherwise, great information, and obviously resources I need to study further.
