CONFLICTS

Birth Location: This database uses Altona, Otter Tail County, Minnesota. His World War 2 draft registration uses Vergas, Minnesota. [military-draftreg-arthur-marks-1940]

FOLLOWUP

Did Arthur move to California in 1940? On his 1940 draft registration card, which was registered in Moorhead, Minnesota, his address was originally entered as Moorhead (the same as his wife's), but this was crossed out and an Los Angeles address was entered. (His half-siblings Clifford and Pearl were living in Los Angeles in 1939.) [military-draftreg-arthur-marks-1940]
