    Seeking uncle's Army records

    Don Hoggatt Newbie

      My great uncle was in the Army and was stationed at Fort Assinniobine Reservation in 1910.  I think his service number was 1876932 but I'm not sure.  His name appears on the 1910 Montana census at Fort Assinniobine. That's as far as I have been able to go.  He was born in November 1887 in Sheridan, Dallas County, Missouri.  He spent time in Girard, Kansas sometime around 1905.
