Branch: British Army?
Jack served in the army in the old country before filing on a homestead at NW 20-74-4-W6 in 1929. He was said to be a great moonshiner and kept an oak barrel under a comforter next to his bed. If unexpected visitors showed up, he would be seen very busily working on his quilt. He eventually sold his land to Joe Zan.
