Early 20th Century Passport?

Did any relative in the United States obtain an early 20th century passport? Applications for passports in this era frequently included information on where the person was born as well as where the person's father was born and whether or not the father was a United States citizen.

  1. Found my Dad's uncle when he was in the Army during WWI. He got his 2 fays before they left port to return to the US. He lied on that form, but I guess he wanted to get off the ship during thew stops. Now I'm on the hunt for his enlistment papers. He was born in Germany, but listed MN as his birth place on the passport application.
