    History Louis is already married to Alice as stated on his World War I Draft Registration Card dated 12 Sep 1918. It also lists his birth date as 28 May 1874. Alice is not listed with him in the 29 July 1916 Voter Registration list meaning they were probably married just after that, but is also not listed with him in the 1924 Voter Registration list meaning they were probably divorced by then.
    Michigan, Births and Christenings Index, 1867-1911 gives his birth year as 1873, but all other sources calculate to a year of 1874. It also states his parents were James H. Axford and Lydia Bates, and his given name was spelled ‘Lewis’. By 1880 he was listed in the census as ‘Louie’. 
    MILI PVT - US ARMY - 35TH MICHIGAN VOLUNTEER INFANTRY, CO. E. He was awarded the Spanish War Service medal for his service.
