A cousin drew my attention to the posting with regard to a WWI photo of my father, Troy Matthew Ivester, b.1895, d.1983. He was drafted from his home in Arkansas (land homesteaded by his father John Ivester), placed in the Army Signal Corps, and served from 1917 to 1919. He was sent to France, quite a change for a farm boy. I think I've seen this picture of him in uniform, which shows a little of the Indian heritage passed on by his grandmother, Priscilla Murphey Ivester, in the depiction of his straight black hair, dark eyes, and high cheekbones. I do not have a copy of the photo, and if you do, I would love to receive it. My address is 1162 Green Valley Road, Napa, CA 94558.
