On August 26, 1918 Charles McCollum wrote to his aunts, Emma Osborne Duncan and Erista Osborne of Racine, Wisconsin. He was stationed at Camp Taylor, Kentucky. He’s in Officer Training School – before Camp Taylor, he was at Camp Lewis, Washington.
He is related to Alfred James McCollum of Salinas, California. And possibly through his mother, he is related to the Osbornes. I haven’t worked out this relationship – it much too ‘shirttail’ for me! Emma Osborne married my great grandfather’s brother. They had no descendants.
