(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Corporal James R Ramsey WWI Veteran

This is a WWI  photo postcard of Corporal JAMES R RAMSEY,  b abt 1897 Hanover twp, Columbiana Co OH. 

He is not my ancestor.  Several years ago I found this postcard, which has his name & other information written on the back side. I posted his information on several genealogy forums, but so far, no one has ever responded.  

JAMES R RAMSEY was the son of WILSON S RAMSEY and his 2nd wife LAURA (Wilson Ramsey was previously married to Susan Frantz, but she died in 1883).  The family, with JAMES and siblings,  can be found in the 1900 and 1910 census in Hanover twp, Columbiana Co OH

In 1917 JAMES R RAMSEY enlisted in the US Army to fight in WWI.  He was stationed first at Camp Willis in Columbus, OH. He apparently did survive the war, as he was honorably discharged in 1919.  

I am hoping to find his descendants, so that they can see this photo.  

Have a great day!

Wow, Betty that's a great photo! He has such an intense face. I hope his family claims him soon.
