It realy give you an insight into the amount of casuaties from just one State during ww1.

Here is a bit of trivia for you. If I were to put all the names in the USA database on A4 paper it would need 2200 pages.

Tom,

Just in case you are compiling additional names, here's one that didn't appear on your Wisconsin printout.

Pte. William Eugene Cartwright, KIA in France between July 18 and July 22, 1918

Hometown: Waupaca, Wisconsin

Born: Waupaca, Dec. 24, 1898

Enlisted in Co. C, 4th Wisconsin Infantry (Wisconsin National Guard) in early autumn 1917--became Co. I, 128th Infantry Regt, 32nd Infantry Division (made up of Wisconsin & Michigan National Guardsmen) when federalized.

He was serving as a replacement in the 26th Infantry Regt, 1st Infantry Division, when he was killed.

From a Waupaca newspaper (and next post):

Re;

And

Herbert Brown, 4th Bn. York Regt. (Green Howard’s). Kia: 16/11/1916.

29863 Pte. W. Rodgers, West York Regt. (Prince of Wales’s Own). Died: 22/07/1919 aged 37.

William Eugene Cartwright is not in ‘Soldiers of the Great War’. c1920, USA

Bateman John Fred RN, no data in SDGW as it does not cover the Navy. I have no British Naval database, you could try the CWGC. www.cwgc.org/

Brown Herbert. Alexandra, Princess of Wales Own Yorkshire regt, Number 2393, Enlisted in Middlesborough, No data on Address or Birth place.

Cotter Thomas Sapper , Born in Armagh, enlisted in barrow-in-Furness while living in Belfast. ‘Died’ at home( I have sometimes seen this to mean that a casualty died in a Hospital in England) supplementary notes says “M” Coy R.E.

Holmes Thomas Lincs. Born in Nottingham and enlisted there while living the also, formerly 83500. Notts and Derby regt.

Rodgers W West York, is not in SDGW probably because he died in 1919.

Wilkinson George Fredrick, Born in Yaxley in Hunts, enlisted in Huntingdon while living in Peterborough in Northants.

This data is from Soldiers died in the Great War, None of these men are in Du Ruvignys Roll of Honour

Lots of Tylers in Soldiers of the Great war but not one William, funny that. It should be a very common name. I tried the AMERICAN BATTLE MONUMENTS COMMISSION but he was not there either, sorry

I just thought I should add a little information on the USA Database. It was originally compiled as a three book set and the plan was to record the names of every USA soldier who died in ww1. It also went to a lot of trouble to include photographs of each soldier. I think there are thousands and thousands of photographs so if you are interested in any particular soldier his picture may be there.I can copy it and post it here. However I dont generally do this unless I am asked.

Tom.
