I didn't find anything about him except for his WWI Draft Registration and marriages:
Married: 11 Jan 1916, Mcnairy Co. TN
Source: TN County Marriages 1790-1950
Married: 23 Dec 1933, McNairy Co. TN
Source: TN County Marriage Index 1780-2002
I'd post this message again in Tennessee, McNary County and Henderson County. Maybe someone in Henderson will be willing to look up his birth info, IF TN was issuing birth records in 1896. Successful Searching!
