The following newspaper announcement traces the miliary posting of Iley Nunn Selph, my husband's grandfather:

The United States Army

Washington, Oct. 15 -- The army orders issued today are as follows: Sergeant Walter G. Cooper, signal corps, U.S.A., now on furlough at Fort Sill, Ok., will report on or about the expiration of his furlough to the commanding officer of that post for duty.
