  • Notes 
    • Mervel's Notes:
      Fred delivered mail by dogsled in Alaska.

      Census Records
      1940 Sausilito, Marin Co, CA
      States that both he and his wife, E. Shotwell, completed 4 years of college - not sure where or when Fred did this

      Based on Janet's birth record, Fred was a traveling salesman, 1910.

      Based on the Post Office Records, Fred was in Anchorage, Alaska from no later than Oct 25, 1915 to at least Dec 20, 1916.
      Based on his WWI Draft Registration dated Oct 15, 1918 from the Valdez, Alaska Local Board, Fred was in "Latouche, Alaska" working for Kennecott Copper Corporation as a "Clerk and Embalmer". It's not clear if he was living and working on Latouche Island, which is uninhabited today. Also, he was not married at this time since his "nearest relative" listed is his father, Albert.
