    Seeking military records of Louis Leveque

    Jacques A Levesque Wayfarer

      Good morning, I have a great uncle named Louis Leveque, born on 14 June 1880 in Ste-Hélène de Kamouraska, Québec, Canada. He went to Portland, Oregon in 1906 and registered in the Army on the 12 September 1918, two months before the end of the first world war. Then, i never head from him. He was single. Could someone could help me to find out what happen after his conscription?

       

      Thanks you for your help

          This individual was born according to ww2 registration in 1879 and others say 1880 it maybe off by one or two years.

              Mr. Eliot Schneider,

              Thanks for your response. It was appreciate. But the Louis Leveque that you are talking about is born in Ontario. My great uncle was born in Ste-Hélène de Kamouraska, Québec, Canada. And I have the proof that he was born the 14 June 1880. Is there any military records that I could get about the Military service of Louis Leveque after his conscription in September 1918. I should be interested to get those military service of my great uncle Louis Leveque, but i don't know where i could ask for that. If you have any idea where i could get this information, please tell me.

              Thank you very much, Jacques A. Levesque

              Jacques,

               

              Was this his son and daughter? Please see below they are buried in Oregon. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/148913547/louis-t-leveque

               

              There was probably not enough time between the time he registered for the draft and being trained. He probably did not serve overseas would have been to short. But he may have served state side here in the states until his discharge or term of enlistment in a Training or Depot Brigade on a base somewhere. But I did not see anything on Ancestry.com

               

              Here is a copy of a conscription.

My great uncle was the son of Zephirin Leveque and Emilie Berube from Ste-Hélène de Kamouraska, Quebec, Canada. He was  born the 14 of june 1880. He had 38 yeaurs old when he was conscript.

                   

                  I am still interested  interested to get the military service of my great uncle Louis Leveque, between he was conscript and the end of his military service at the US Army ( or after).  I don't know where i could ask for that.  If you have any idea where i could get this information, or more information, please tell me. I would be very greatful for that,

                   

                  Thank you very much for your help to find information about my great uncle Louis Leveque
