All people listed here and below were born in late 1800's with their marriages probably having taken place around 1900 to early 1900's. The possible exception to this would be George Doss who would have been born earlier and married earlier, since he was my Great-Grandfather, I believe.

Enlisted in U.S. Regular Army, April 23, 1914 at Evansville, IN. Sent to Jefferson Barracks, MO. Assigned to Company F, 16th Infantry. Saw service on the Mexican Border. Embarked for Europe June 14, 1917. During the early morning of November 3, 1917, a German battalion attacked a group of Americans who were in trenches on a muddy battlefield near Artois, France. Three men were killed, one of them Corporal James Bethel Gresham of Evansville. They were the first Americans killed in the World War. Of the three, Gresham was said to have died first, making him the first American soldier killed in the World War. Gresham was first buried in France at Bathelemont-les-Bauzemont, but in July 1921 his body was returned to Evansville and buried in Locust Hill Cemetery.
