      Carl Wretfors WWII Draft Registration

      This is what I read on the image

      He lives at 71 Dikeman St., Brooklyn, Kings County, New York. Born in Nantes, France on Oct 20, 1887. Name and address of person who will always know your address-looks to me like- Jerry Murphy 8506 10th Ave (maybe Bk for Brooklyn?) Also says step-son in parenthesis, so he must be son of Elizabeth from a first marriage or relationship. Employer name an address looks like ``Ideal Cafeteria at 72 Van Dyke st Bk (Brooklyn) New York. I will look for a marriage for Elizabeth Cogan to a Murphy and also look at Jerry Murphy on the census to learn more.
