Pedigree Chart


Asa never married and did not have any children.

Believe he had moved with his parents to Backus, Cass County, Minnesota about 1917. On his 1918 WWI draft registration filed in Backus, he was working as a laborer for E E Griffith, he was 5'8" and of medium build. This registration was the first time we find his middle name and the writing is smudged - spelling could be Eugene or Eugean.

Believe Asa may have died serving in the infantry, no record of such found yet.
