WWI Document of L. D. Lover Vaughner

Description

Lover’s WWI Index Card identifies that he and his family, Lyles and Vaughner families, were located in “Aubrey-Denton Texas” in 1918. Aubrey-Denton Texas is next to Pilot Point, the location of St. John’s Cemetery. This document was also signed by his relative, “Sebe (Eugene Ceborn) Vaughner.” Notice that on the description of Lover they identify him as “black” instead of the more common description of that time, “negro.” The document also indicates that he was a farmer.
