This looks like his marriage record:

Name: Lawrence Kuhns
Spouse Name: Nora Holms
Marriage Date: 11 Oct 1917
Marriage County: Madison
Birth Date: 23 Jul 1893
Age: 24

Source Citation

Madison County Indiana; Index to Marriage Record 1880-1920 Inclusive Volum, W. P. A. Original Record Located: County Clerk's O; Book: 31; Page: 130

Although the year of birth is different, the month & day are the same. I suspect this is him in the WWI Draft Registration:

Name: Lawrence Everton Kuhns
County: Madison
State: Indiana

Birth Date: 23 Jul 1891
Race: Caucasian (White)

Thanks for the information. This is the correct Lawrence Kuhns as he was married to Nora Helms not Holms. It was mentioned in another response that their son Levi Abraham Kuhns born in 1918 was named after his grand father. It appears both of his grandfathers names are similar. Levi A Kuhns paternal and Levi Abraham Helms maternal. 
 I would like to find if Lawrence had a second wife and if they had children.
Name correction, Levi A Kuhns Paternal Grandfathers name was Abraham Lincoln Helms not Levi Abraham Helms.
