|World War I Registration Card
Elvin was born on July 29 1884 in Duval County, Jacksonville Florida. This WWI Registration Card was completed on September 12, 1918 in Worcester, MA, and Elvin was 34 at the time. Hannah and Elvin were married and lived at 4 Pelham Street, which was one of the well talked about addresses that the Cully family resided of which I visited in April 2011.
Elvin was employed as a Barber at 4 Pleasant Street, Worcester MA at this time, and his employer was Parteur J. N. Harmon.
Elvin had a medium built, and was of medium height. He also had Brown hair and black eyes.

Elvin Wesley Brown was living in New York when he completed the World War II Registration Card in April of 1942. He was living at 460 W. 147th Street, NY, NY, where my Mother and Grandmother resided. (When I went to NY, I had the opportunity to tour the building and also went inside the actual apt my mother lived in. I did not take pictures of the inside apt. as for the tenants privacy)
Elvin was documented as being 5’6″ and 163 lbs. He was Negro, with Brown eyes, black hair and a light brown complexion. He was also 57 years at the time.
