    I note that in his WWII draft registration the name on the card was entered in block print letters spelled Lett, but his himself signed the card as Latt Burrell.  The other fields on the card were written in script, but in a different hand from the signature.  The card also gives us his full name as Latt (Lett) Lloyd Burrell.  His wife's name is written as Mrs Lett Burrell
