It may be that this is a Fred Watson b IL abt 1875.  Appears he died  or left the family? when children where young and Elizabeth remarried to Frank Racer in abt 1919.  Did not see any online military record for WWI  for Fred.  It also appears that they had 3 boys, Edward, Thomas, Robert.  Edward is found in 1930 census (Stepson) of Frank Racer.  Elizabeths brother James 'Mushany' is  living in this household in 1920 with Frank and Eliz Racer.  (Can't tell if the orphan Thomas listed in 1920 might be the same Tom that is a son to Fred and Elizabeth or a completely different Thomas that is not connected at all. )
Requires a lot more digging.  Good Luck
