Scott, the following are records you may want to pursue further to see if they relate to your grandfather. Believe the WWI Draft Registration is definitely him, and that aligns with the birth date in the 1900 census record, but birth states don't match. Since you have the Ohio Valley info, this 1900 census record is a good possibility. If I find anything further, I'll let you know.
