Alaska State records did not start until 1912. So one would have to rely on civilian records, the newspaper(s) of the day. Which I think there was one. Or, one would have to use church records or in this case, possibly military records. There is also applying for a birth certificate through late registry as my father had to do in the 1950's. So it is possible that AK Vital Statistics may have a record. Military records may have to be accessed through the US National Archives.
