I also posted this on other forums here:


A very interesting follow-up was posted on the Germany forum by Eileen Wilson:

This could be significant in terms of finding out what became of William Dom. The following is a copy (paste) of the conent of her post:


William's WWI draft card indicates born 6 September 1873, a naturalized US citizen, living at 2730 S. Calhoun Street in Fort Wayne, a salesman for the Singer Sewing Machine, next of kind was Mary Dom of the same address; dated 12 September 1918.

In the 1930 Census, I find a likely candidate in Wichita, Kansas:

Dom, William, lodger, age 57, widowed, married for first time at age 41, b. Germany, parents b. same, emigrated 1889, naturalized, salesman, music store

The following entry may or may not be connected:
Dunn, Elizabeth D., lodger, age 30, divorced, b. Kansas, father b. New Jersey, mother b. Illinois, operator, elevator

The two entries are considered one household within the boarding house run by a Mary Blanchard on East Main Street.

From the Indiana Marriage Index, William and Mae were married 3 August 1914 in Vigo. Getting a copy of this record should tell you the names of his parents. Finding the church record might also give you additional information about his place of birth.
