Hello Mr. English,
Do you know what his mothers name was. I found some information pertaining Joseph B. English His mothers name was Margaret English, from Repton, Alabama. If this information is correct please let me know I might have some information for you if this is correct.
You can also try using the SF-180 form, which is downloadable and fill out to the best of your knowledge and submit to the NPRC, they can help you determine any service dates as well.
Lastly, you can try and request from the Alabama National Guard, however they may not have records pertaining to WW1 Veterans but worth a try. Please see the link
Margaret Virginia Falkenbery English born in Monroe, Alabama, USA on 1860. Married to Joseph Dot English.

Dear Mr. English,
Thank you for your research query to History Hub.
The information you have about your grandfather’s service means that there are two possibilities to explore. His service record is probably at the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis, MO. This compiled record should give you the most possible information on where and when he served. However, if he did serve before WWI, then some of his records may be at the National Archives in Washington, DC.
For more information on how the NPRC service record request process works, please read their detailed webpage: https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records. For information on pre-WWI records stored in Washington, DC, start with this webpage: https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/pre-ww-1-records. More information on searching military records at our DC location can also be found here: https://www.archives.gov/research/military.
We wish you the best with your research!
