Northern Maine Veterans

WWI Veterans

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 where you can search however to view the record, you must have a paid subscription.

The database was updated on 11 November 2017 and now includes World War I Veterans from multiple towns in the St John River Valley. See the tribute to the Veterans of Frenchville, St Agatha, and Sinclair, Maine that was added to YouTube for Veterans Day 2017.

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.
