Lukin Boy Joined Canadian Army

Daily Register-Republican published in Mount Carmel Illinois on Aug 29, 1918 page 2:

Marshal W King of south of Bridgeport received a telegram from Winnipeg, Canada, Friday stating that his son Lemuel had died at a dressing station in France, of gunshot wounds in the abdomen, on August 10. He was 22 years old last September. In March 1917, he left home and for some weeks his parents knew nothing of his whereabouts, but in June he wrote that he had enlisted in the Canadian army at Winnipeg and shortly afterward was sent to France.
