    A 1917 WWI draft registration matches Glynn, and is in the same plccewhere his brother Ben Hill Cowart registered.  They were both livingin Copperhill, Tennessee, and working for the Tennessee CopperCompany.  Their mother was later living here as a widow with theirsister Ida in her household in 1930 and 1940.  This was also Glynn'smother's residence when she passed away in 1949.  In 1917, Thisregistration is in the name of Tatum Cowart.

    U.S., World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918
    Tatum Cowart
    Copperhill (Polk County), Tennessee
    Birth 31 Aug 1888 Bartow County, Georgia
    Occupation Switchman, Tennessee Copper Co, Copperhill, Tenn
    Married with 3 children
    Tall, Blue Eyes, Dark Hair, Broken Left Arm
    Registered 5 June 1917 Copperhill, Polk, Tennessee
    Signed Tatum Cowart

    Tatum reports that he is married with 3 children.  This matches thefamily configuration in the census of 1920, except for the addition ofa fourth child reported as 1 year and 2 months old.  All factors matchTatum C Cowart as being the same person as Glynn T Cowart.  Hisgrandson's name as Glynn Tatum Cowart III gives us a valid middle namefor Glynn.  This was his mother's maiden name.  And in the 1920 censushe was enumerated under the name Tatum.  Puzzling, however, is themiddle initial C.  This name appears on his grave and some records.

    His son and grandson''s names are also spelled Glynn, and the nameoccurs several tiems in the Cowart lineage.  Thus this appears to bethe family's spelling of the name.  There was a Glynn Tatum Cowart Jrand Glenn Tatum Cowart III.  The Social Security record of Glynn TatumCowart, born in 1914, reports his father's name was Tatum C Cowart,matching the censuses and WWI registration mentioned above.  Tatum CCowart is a name on the footstone of a Cowart burial in Jasper,Georgia, a location that matches with this familly.

    The grave birth date in August 1888 is close to the birth datereported for Glenn T Cowart in the 1900 census, July 1888.  In fact,this census birth date is closer to correct that most 1900 censusbirth dates, which are usually off by at least one year and often havethe wrong month.

    Glynn and other members of his family worked for the Copper Mine inCopperhill or the Coal Mine in the area.  The 1940 census reprots thatGlynn (Tatum) nwas a mechanic for the copper mines.

    The 1920 census for Tatum C Cowart matches the individual previouslyreported as Glenn T Cowart in 1900 and 1910.  He named his first sonJefferson D, after his father, and his first daughter Mary, after hismother.  Glynn's mother is reported as Myrtle Barnes, who is buried inthe same cemetery as Tatum C Cowart.
