Re: [OH] BELSER OF CLEVELAND, OHIO
In Response To: [OH] BELSER OF CLEVELAND, OHIO ()
Jerome Belser was of West Indian descent, born in Jefferson County, or Birmingham Alabama, in 1892. He worked mostly as a chef on a variety of trains. He lived much of his life in Cleveland, Ohio until his death in 1967. He was married to a Felicia House in Asbeville, North Carolina in 1926
From the WW I Draft Registration records on Ancestry.com
There is an AA Jerome W. Belser, born 31 Mar 1892 in Montgomery, Ala. He is married and is an unemployed waiter living in Detroit, MI as of 5 Jun 1917. So, if this is the same Jerome Belser he may have been married prior to his marriage to Felicia House in 1926.
Hope this helps,
