Bill was from Kingwood, West Virginia where grandma lived for a few years. She and he graduated from the Kingwood High School.
Her and Bill were a couple from 1916 through 1919. (This must have been a high school romance as she was only 15 when they started writing/dating and 19 when he died.
He was drafted for WW1 and stationed for training at Camp Meade, Maryland when he became ill and died of influenza.
I found an envelope in the box I have that my Grandma had scribbled/doodled on. She was serious about him. I have the envelope and lots of pictures and many love letters. This is all I know about Bill If I can help any of you Please Please E-mail me DCuster@neo.rr.com
