On THIS WORLD WAR II DRAFT REGISTRATION RECORD, Buford Wray's employer is Wray Bros, xxxx. The "xxxx" is another word that I can't decipher. Ideas, anyone, please?
(I'm not linking the profile here because I just added it and there is no information in it yet).
EDITED: Now I have written the bio, plus added the answer to this question, so I'm adding the profile link to the question!
"Chev." There was a Wray Bros Chevrolet dealership in Des Arc. In the link, look lower right center, just above the word 'September.'
OH - MY - GOSH!!! Herbert, you are beyond unbelievable to unearth that obscure documentation.
Thank you so very much!!!
By the way, your timing is also a thing of beauty - I just this very moment finished writing the profile for Buford Wray - in a few minutes I'll go change the:
he was employed by the Wray Bros (with an additional word that defies interpretation)
he was employed by Wray Bros Chevrolet.
Wray Bros. Chevrolet. They "erected a garage and filling station" on 1931.
Please see "THE PAGES TURNED BACK" (Thursday, June 11, 1931) at the top of the right hand side page here:
4th paragraph, 2nd. column.
Edition: mmm... not the first, but confirming Herbert's answer.
Another WikiTree Wizard ... Rubén, I wish there were a way to select two best answers!
Honestly, I simply cannot believe the research expertise you two have demonstrated. I know I'm still a novice when it comes to research, but this is way above and beyond a level I can even aspire to ever achieving!!!!
Well done, Rubén!
Gaile, maybe it's a twofer. There should be at least one Wray brother out there in search of an occupation.
Thank you Gaile!
I don´t deserve such words. I'm just a lucky researcher
Let's welcome the new WikiTree Pilot. Congratulations Herbert !
