has five young men who look possible in Washington DC. Most have mother AND father b. VA, so there are no exact matches, but the F&M BP's don't match in about 25% of the census entries I see. I was hoping for a mother-in-law or father-in-law living with Lena on the 1920 or 1930.
NARA may have something in their records.
I couldn't find him in the WWI Draft cards.

Did you use ancestry.com or www.familysearch.org? Ancestry is about the best geneology research site. They give you a three day "free trial" and then after that you have to pay for it. (But if you are sneaky you can "borrow" someone else's email and get another three days free..) You can actually get a lot of information just in three days, and they also have message boards to check if anyone is looking for the same names as you are. They also have the census reports on there too, and it tells you things such as who was living in the same house, their ages, addresses, and occupations

Another good option for census research is to use Heritage Quest. This can be accessed on-line through your library website. All you need is a library card. Call your local library and they will explain how to access Heritage Quest for free at home. Good Luck!
