I found Charles Emile Stafford on the Ancestry.com- World War 0ne Draft Regist. Card. This Charles was born April 28, 1890. I also found out, from the registration card, that he was born at Fort Niabrara, Nebraska. This Charles was a farmer in Mountain View, California. He had a wife and child at the time. He had previous military service in the Signal Corp for 9 months as a Private in California. Charles was medium tall and had a medium build. He had grey eyes and brown hair. Charles registered in Santa Clara, California on June 5th 1917. From this information I was able to locate on him from the 1910 and 1920 U.S. Censuses. See below for details.

I have not found this Charles on the 1900 or 1930 U.S. Census as of yet. I will starting looking for Charles's Father and Mother, John Stafford and Cornelia on the 1880 U.S. Census and earlier U.S. Censuses. Craig

Oddly enough, I can't find a likely Charles E. Stafford in the 1900, 1910, 1920 or 1930 Censuses.
