Cornelius Cornelius Kuyper was born on 25 October 1875 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.1 He was the son of Kornelis Kuijper and Wilhelmina Broertjes. Cornelius married Loretta Redman.2 Cornelius and Loretta had at least 2 children. These children are Maria Grace and Josephine.
Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. With no end in sight for World War I, the United States instituted its third and final draft registration. It included all men who were between the ages of 18 and 21, and 31 to 45 years of age. This added younger men than the previous registrations, those who were born between September 12, 1897 and September 12, 1900; and added an older group of men, born between September 12, 1873 and September 12, 1888. Cornelius filled out a draft card on 12 September 1918 in Chicago. He was described as having medium height and build and blue eyes with brown hair. His mother, wife and three children were solely dependent upon him for support. He was physically disqualified because he was missing the first two fingers of his right hand.1 Cornelius and Loretta were living at 10555 Nebash Avenue in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.1 Cornelius worked as a machinist (asst. foreman) for the Illinois Coastal Railroad at Brosonside Crossing in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.1
