Biography

Birth

William was born on 13 November 1897 in Friendship, Adams County, Wisconsin, although his draft card says 13 November 1896 in Necedah, Wisconsin. In his zealousness to enlist, he went to the neighboring county, where he was less likely to be known, and gave his birthplace as in Necedah in that county of Juneau, and his year of birth as 1896, making him 21, rather than his actual birth year of 1897. So his draft card entry is false. His Social Security claim (SS #387-18-3797) shows him to have been born in ’97 in Friendship, Wisconsin. He was the son of Fred Miner (Lists, 1905 census)

Appearance

He was tall, of medium build, with black hair and brown eyes. (Draft Card)

Military Service

William, service number 283779, enlisted in the Army on 30 June 1917. He saw action in WWI with Co. D, 128ᵀᴴ Infantry, 32ᵈ Infantry Division (the Red Arrow Division). (Headstone) He returned to the United States aboard the U. S. S. George Washington on 27 April 1919. (Lists)

Death

He died on 19 December 1941. He is buried at Block 43, Lot 07 of Spring Grove Cemetery, Wisconsin Dells, Columbia County, Wisconsin. (Find a Grave)
