Query: SANDERS of Knox County, Indiana

SANDERS—Seeking information on Delmar Arthur SANDERS (born 3 August 1896 in Sandborn, Knox County, Indiana; died 10 March 1943 in Los Angeles, California; buried at Los Angeles National Cemetery). Delmar was the son of William Sanders (born February 1874 in Indiana) and Ann Eliza POWELL (born April 1871 in Indiana), who married 26 November 1893 in Knox County, Indiana.

Delmar was a Private in the U.S. Army. His World War I draft registration card lists him as a resident of 122 Mill Street in Kent, Portage County, Ohio, working at a tire & rubber company. He married Evelyn A. PUTNAM (born July 1890 in Massachusetts) in 1920 and they had a son, Warren, born 3 August 1921 in Lynn, Massachusetts. They divorced in 1926 and Delmar had no contact with the family until 1940. Son Warren later changed the spelling of his last name to SAUNDERS.

If you have any information, please contact Gerd M. Saunders (4133-224th Ln. SE #206, Issaquah WA 98029; gerds@msn.com) directly.
