Family of Wayne Evert VESEY and Alma L REINHOLD
Married2129 1920 Mar 242129 at prob Plymouth, WI.
Sometime about 1917, Wayne joined2128 the American Expeditionary Force, Co. C, 120th F. A., as a soldier (unidentified) writes home from France that Wayne Vesey and he were detailed to a signal school somewhere near the front. Wayne, a "Red Arrow" man, return home2128 to Sheboygan, WI, in May, 1919, now a corporal. In 1920, he was among the veterans who formed the Plymouth American Legion post and was appointed the first Commander. Wayne doesn't seem to appear in the 1930 census. His wife Alma and their two sons were in that year living with her parents, Hugo and Ida Reinhold. That may be due to a charge (Aug 1930) of car theft ("operating an automobile with consent of the owner") for which he was placed on probation. In Aug 1931 it was reported that he violated probation and was sentenced to 12 to 15 months in the state prison at Waupun. Sometime early in the 1930s, Wayne and Alma were divorced, as she is listed2106 in 1940 as divorced, and Wayne appears with wife Florence (maiden name undetermined) and a son Roger. Wayne continued his association with the American Legion as, in 1940, he was again elected Commander of the Post.
Wayne is likely the Wayne E Vesey whose death is indexed in Cook County, Illinois, July 12, 1957.
