Does anyone here have access to Ancestry.com? There's one WWII draft card there that interests me. Specifically the Watson Jones who lives in Shelby County, Tennessee and who was apparently born around 1900:
I want to know specifically what location is given for his birthplace on that card of his.
His mother claimed to have lived to age 116 (almost 117) and I'm trying to help verify her age but for that I'd like to know where exactly she lived back in 1900, and since Watson Jones was born in late 1900, if I will find out his birth place, then I would also find out the likely location of his mother's residence back in 1900, since Watson Jones was born only several months after the 1900 US Census was taken and thus his family was probably unlikely to move in such a short period of time.
Here is his mother's Find-A-Grave page, FWIW:
And here is his own Find-A-Grave page:
Anyway, please let me know if anyone here can help me with this. But please don't spend any of your own money on this--it's only if you already have an Ancestry.com account or can get one for free for a certain short specific period of time.
