    William Louis Smith - WW1 Draft Info.
    William Louis Smith - WW1 Draft Info. He was working for the Greenville and Columbus Railroad in Mississippi from as early as 1917 probably until at least 1927, when the great Mississippi River flood devastated the region, and we know he was on a sand bag crew under some fellow named "Hanson", since they wrote the foreman's name on the backs of their shirts during the flood, and he was wearing shirts with "Hanson" written on the back, according to my uncle James and some other of the old folks years ago who knew him. He was only 40 when he died.
