  • Betty Gregston has Elma's name as Elmo Wagnon.  Elma gives his name asElma in his registrations for both WWI and WWII.  She and some othersreport his birthplace as Enterprise, in Rusk County, Texas, which isthe location on his WWII registration.  We do find his father livingin Rusk County, but Elma himself reports his birth place as Anderson,Grimes County, Texas, in his WWI registration.  See details below.

    Wagnon, Rena  Wife F W 51 Married 23 yrs TX TN TN
    Wagnon, Elmer  Son M W 20 Single TX GA TX Farm Hand

    Elma is listed here and in at least one other census as Elmer.  He iscalled Elma in his WWII Draft Registration.  A family genealogy listshim as Elmo.  Elma (Elmer) and his two siblings were all born inTexas.  His brother Ed, the last child, is age 14 in this 1910 census,meaning he was born in about 1896.  They would have moved to IndianTerritory (Chickasaw Nation) after this year.

    In his WWI Draft Registration, he reports his name as Elma, andreports his exact birth date as 10 February 1890.  His signatureconfirms that his name is Elma.

    Signed Elma Jackson Wagnon

    Note that Elma reports his birth place as Anderson, Texas.  I havereported this as his birth place.  There is some discrepancy, however,since in his WWII registration in 1942, Elma reports his birth placeas Mt Enterprise (Rusk County), Texas.  I am assuming the earlierreport is the more precise or accurate.

    I have not been able to find a census record for Elma and family for1930.

    Note again the spelling of his first name.  The birth place here isdifferent from that he reported in his WWI registration above,Anderson, which is in Grimes County.  Several genealogies havefollowed the date given in this WWII registration, with no comments onthe difference from the location reported in the WWI registration.
