Re: BATER Stanley
Stanley J. Bater was my wifes father. We have a good record on him. He did however, omit being born in Europe and stating he was born in Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania in America. Although his younger sister, Eleanora, did list Austria-Poland as her birthplace. He may have did this at the time of his enlistment in the Michigan National Guard and later as an soldier in the U.S. Army in WW1, thinking it may cause concern as to his ethnic origin. I am currently trying to find the Catholic Church the family attended, and have them search for their European roots. Thank you for your interest.
