Draft card for James Daniel Havens

Ancestry. WWI Draft Card for James Daniel Havens.
This is the World War I draft card for my wife's 2nd-great-grandfather, James Daniel Havens. The card was signed on 12 September 1918, included his birth date and permanent address in Bennetts Switch, Miami County, Indiana. He wrote that he works for himself and was township trustee. James listed his wife "Lulu" Lucinda Helen Wright Havens as nearest relative.
Ancestry. Reverse side of draft card.
The reverse provides key details on James' eye color (blue) and hair color (light).

Bennetts Switch is a tiny hamlet located in Deer Creek Township, Miami County, named by Baldwin Bennett for a station on the Lake Erie & Western Railroad.
