To whom it may concern, Greetings:
These Presents Attest, That in accordance with the proclamation of the President of the United States, and in compliance with law, James Henderson Moran, Dresden, Weakley Tenn, has submitted himself to registration and has by me been duly registered this 12 day of September, 1918, under the supervision of the Local Board designated on the back hereof. (The back is stamped County of Weakley, State of Tenn, Dresden, TN). Signed by W.W. House, Registrar.
In addition to being the registrar William W. House was the manager of a sand and gravel business. His father was Isham House. He married Mary F. Elliott Nov. 23, 1890.
Now James would've been too old to go off to World War I since he was 40 years old at the time. Plus he was a family man and a banker and bankers were considered essential. Being a banker also made him the perfect choice to be a Director of Publicity for the Victory Liberty Loan program for Weakley County. Too old to fight but just right to help raise money for the war!
