    Samuel Thomas Branch
    Residence Des Arc, Prairie County, Arkansas
    Age 33, Birth Date 25 Dec 1885
    Laborer, Des Arc Veneer and Lumber Company
    Wife Mildred Branch, Des Arc
    Tall, Slender, Brown Eyes, Dark Hair
    Registered 12 September 1918 (Place not stamped)
    Signed Samuel Thomas Branch

    In 1920, his age is still 33.  This age matches the age reported in1900, as well as the birth date of Dec 1`887, in contrast to the 1918draft registration that reports him also 33 that year, and born 25 Dec1885.  In 1920 he and Mildred are still living in DesArc, PrairieCounty, Arkansas.  The relationships in the household are not clear.The head of the household is Ed Monroe, a black man who is renting.Sam was first also designated as head, then this was Xed out, but nosubstitute status was entered.  Then Mildred is entered as Wife,obviously meaning Sam's wife.

    Ed is a fireman at what appears to be Stationary Backer, thedesignation of two others on this page also.  I checked several pagesof the census and find other designations of this place of work, butstill cannot tell what the enumerator was trying to spell.  The smearywriting makes it hard to read these occupational designations.  Sam isa Grader at the Veneer Mill.  There is also a stone mill in DesArcwhere others on this page work.
