William "Bill" Spindler

Bill was from Kingwood, West Virginia where grandma lived for a few years. She and he graduated from the Kingwood High School.

Her and Bill were a couple from 1916 through 1919. (This must have been a high school romance as she was only 15 when they started writing/dating and 19 when he died.

He was drafted for WW1 and stationed for training at Camp Meade, Maryland when he became ill and died of influenza.

I found an envelope in the box I have that my Grandma had scribbled/doodled on. She was serious about him. I have the envelope and lots of pictures and many love letters.
This is all I know about Bill If I can help any of you Please Please E-mail me DCuster@neo.rr.com

If some of you may have letters from My Grandmother her name was Minta Reese. Or as Bill called her in some of his letter "Bobby" Dont ask me why. I do know he lived for a little while in Akron Ohio in a boarding house. He did have land in Akron. That he left to my Grandmother.

Thank you
Doug Custer
