very strange - I cannot find WW11 draft.... under any christian name...
just ploughed thro the 1940 census &
GRACE A 49
EUGENE R 19
DONALD N 11
are still in Bovina
with a lodger Robert Shimke b WI aged 13
I cannot find him on the SS listings (from 1951)
he was blind in one eye in the WW1 draft - could something have happen to his other eye and he was sent off somewhere????
