The World War I Veterans database was extracted from multiple information sources, including the Maine Military Men, 1917-1918 which was published as the Roster of Maine in the Military Service of the U.S. and Allies in World War 1917-1919. Vol. I-II. Augusta, ME, USA: n.p., 1929. Some of the information was supplemented by the World War I Draft Cards available at the National Archives and on Ancestry.com where you can search however to view the record, you must have a paid subscription.
The database was updated on 31 July 2008 and now includes World War I Veterans from Frenchville, St Agatha, Fort Kent, and Eable Lake, Maine.
See my recommended readings and maps on World War I. See also the writeup and picture of the USS Madawaska which was a World War I troop transport. Did some of these veterans go to or come back from Europe on this ship?
Two young men born in Frenchville died in the service of their coutry in World War I -- Denis Cyr and Eddy Plourd, for whom the American Legion Post 145 in Frenchville is named, the Cyr Plourde Post.
The above photos were scanned from the 50th Anniversary 1935-1985 souvenir book of the American Legion Cyr Plourde Post 145, Frenchville, Maine. Additional photo from souvenir book shows the American Legion Cyr Plourde Post World War I veterans.
