I just purchased a book titled: Jefferson County in the World War. It was published in 1920 and is priceless...
Every man and woman who served in WW1 is listed from every town that was part of Jefferson County. Every soldier that died is listed and many are also pictured with info on how and where they died. Every soldier that served from the city of Watertown is also listed with their address they lived at. Every nurse is listed, Welfare worker with A.E.F. American Red Cross,Y.M.C.A.,Men in Semi-Military Service, and Directing Officers of various county war activies and organizations.
