1940 Events

 

James Frain’s 1942 draft card lists his address as house #89 in Crabtree (Michael Haggerty’s address), and lists Mrs. John Haggerty as the “person who will always know [his] address.”  Thomas Frain, Jr.’s 1942 draft card lists his address as Box 73, Crabtree, the same address John Haggerty lists on his draft card that year.  Mercifully, none of the men in their generation was drafted.  John Haggerty and his family moved to Maryland in 1942, preceded by John Jr., who joined the National Guard in 1939, then served at Fort Meade.  Mary Kellington worked in Pittsburgh for a time before joining her family in Maryland at Christmas, 1942; her husband Tom Kellington had been drafted and sent overseas.
