Veterans Buried in Lewis County
This alphabetical list contains the names of military veterans buried in Lewis County. The legend indicates the source of the information and where the listing can be verified. CEM indicates the cemetery books pubished by the Hacker's Creek Pioneer Descendants Library. OBIT indicates the obituary books from the same source. Page numbers standing alone or containing a letter indicate an entry from a book created by American Legion Post #4 prior to 1940 and up-to-date only to December 1940. Most other entries carry explanatory information. There are a number of entrys with no source recorded. These are gleaned from local newspapers and comprise the deaths of known veterans between 2000 and Memorial Day 2011.
We have a list of most, but probably not all veterans buried in Lewis County by cemetery. This is the list volunteers use to place flags on graves and was updated in early May 2011. At the end of the list you will find persons for whom we do not have a burial site identified. If you can identify burial sites or know of anyone left off of the alphabetical list or the burial list by cemetery, please contact the webmaster.
We continue to seek any veteran's burial site in Lewis County. If you can tell us where a veteran who is not on this list is buried, please send Joy DeFazio an e-mail. Please note that these veterans do not have to have served from Lewis County; they must be buried in Lewis County!
American Legion Post #4 and the HCPD with help from a hundred or more volunteers across the county have placed flags on most of these veterans' graves for Memorial Day. If you or someone you know or some group you know would like to assist with flag placements, please contact Joy De Fazio by e-mail or call the HCPD Library during business hours at 304-269-7091.
