Searching for data on Aubrey Lewark/Luark. He was b. in Indiana. World War I draft card reads: Herpes, IN - but I find no town by that name on current Atlas maps. At time of draft registration (June 1917), Aubrey was age 22 yrs. and living/working on a farm in Wyoming, Starks, IL.
Aubrey was a train conductor with the Milwaukee Road RR, usually on runs between Milwaukee and Minneapolis and points beyond. He owned a restaurant in Portage, Columbia, WI at some time, where he met wife Betty Lucille Smith. He passed away unexpectedly (Dec. 1961) when I was newly married so I do not know much background.
Any help regarding Aubrey, or the son they adopted - named Delbert would be appreciated.
