Biography

William (aka Don) was born in 1895 to William Martin and Flora Dragoo in Landon, Missouri. In 1900, the family was living in Lincoln Township (west part), Westboro village, Atchison, Missouri.[1]

Don was single when he registered for the WWI draft in 1917, and had been working in farming. He was described as medium height and slender build with brown eyes and hair.[2]

He married Bernice Luella Livingston on 12 Feb 1919 in Red Oak, Montgomery, Iowa.[3] The marriage produced one son and one daughter. Don was mentioned in his daughter's (Ardith Ann) birth record in 1928.[4]

In 1930, they were living in Riverton, Fremont County, Iowa, where they had a farm.[5] The family was still in Riverton in 1940.[6]

In 1942, Don registered for the WWII draft.[7] He was 46, married, self-employed, and described as 5"8", 165 pounds, hazel eyes, grey hair, and ruddy complexion.

Don passed away in 1980 from cancer[8], and was buried in the Utterback Cemetery in Riverton, Fremont, Iowa.[9] [10]
