  • Notes 
    • His 16 Feb 1942 draft registration record gives, as "person who will always know your address," Frank Eaton, which suggests he was still married to Mary Evelyn Eaton at that time.

      Also, the 27 April 1944 edition of the Tyrone (Pennsylvania) Daily Herald, in the "Social and Personal" column on page 3, notes that "Mr. and Mrs. John Raabe, Huntingdon, West Virginia, are visiting with Mr. Raabe's parents, Northwood. Mr. Raabe is the superintendent of a large nickle [sic] works in Huntingdon, West Virginia." Assuming the obituary below is correct on the year of John Diller Raabe's second marriage, that would place the end of his marriage to Mary Evelyn Eaton as between 27 Apr 1944 and the end of 1945.

      "Deaths: John D. Raabe." Tyrone (Pennsylvania) Daily Herald, 14 Apr 1966, p. 3:
