According to his 12 September 1918 draft card Rafael P. Baca, a native born white man, was born on 8 February 1878. He was a self employed farmer. His was was Josefita P. Baca. They both lived in Socorro, NM. He was of medium height and build. He had brown eyes and hair. It appears that his brother Maximiano P. Baca was the registrar for this document.
I searched for draft cards for Rafael's brothers, including Maximiano, but not find any.
Rafael Baca was my great-grandfather, the father of my maternal grandfather.
