Some researchers list a marriage for Grover Cleveland Welborn to Sadie B. Ragland on 15 Jun 1910. Perhaps this is the case but there is no such mention in Mississippi marriage records on line. Those same researchers report a death date of 1919 yet his headstone clearly says 1918. Also, there is no such person on the 1920 census and there is no Ragland family in Mississippi on any other censuses. The matter requires further research.

On 14 May 1910, Grover Cleveland Welborn appeared on the United States Census, at Newton, Newton County, Mississippi, listed as working as a cashier at a Railroad office.4

The likely registrants for WWI Draft were older and/or born and registered in South Carolina. Further research is needed.
