Here is Ernest A. Needham’s WWI Draft Registration card from 1918. It is amazing how much information one can glean from one document. He is now married to Susie D. (Howe) Needham and living in Boston, MA. He is 35 years old, and described as medium height with a slender build, hazel eyes, and brown hair. His signature can be seen at the bottom on the left page. He, Susie, and their young family are at the time living at 25 Aberdeen St. in Boston, which is a stone’s throw from Fenway Park. He was working as Sexton at the Second Church in Boston.
