1 WORLD WAR I VETERANS GRAVE SITES ONTARIO COUNTY, NY General Information American and British/Canadian Cemeteries in France Compiled by Preston E. Pierce County Historian Ontario County Department of Records, Archives and Information Management Systems Canandaigua, NY

2 WORLD WAR I VETERANS GRAVE SITES ONTARIO COUNTY, NY Residents entered military service during the World War I era, long before the United States declared war on Germany, or the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires. Opinions about which side to support formed gradually after August, There were many residents with strong ties to belligerent nations on both sides. Responses to the 1917 state military census show that many young men had previous military service in the armies of other nations. A few of those men chose to volunteer for service under their former flags. In addition, the proximity of Ontario County to Canada resulted in a few volunteers crossing the border to fight in British- Canadian units, particularly the air services. A report by the two local Selective Service boards (Geneva and Canandaigua), filed in 1919, revealed that 2129 men entered the various services from Ontario County men were inducted under the draft law. The remaining men volunteered for service while that was still possible. It should be noted that while the report goes into detail about the qualifications of the men, no women are mentioned, despite a small number who entered the Army as nurses. It is not known how many local women entered either the Navy or the Marine Corps during World War I. 1 Eighty residents of the county died serving in American military forces during the war. Some were killed in action, while many more died as a result of wounds received in action or from disease and accident. 2 Those men who went forth from Ontario County and died during the war are memorialized by name and community on the memorial plaque found on the first floor of the Ontario County Court House. 3 Many more memorial plaques honor the dead of our local communities. Those can be found in churches, public parks, and other public buildings. Most of those other plaques display the names of those who served in the war, but did not necessarily enter the service from a local community. Many of the World War I veterans buried in the county did not originally live here. 1 Ontario County Sent 2129 Men to War. Ontario County Times. Feb. 12, p Kincaid, Leslie J. (comp.). Roll of Honor.

These articles provide the names of those on the tablet and information on the cost, including the fact that an anonymous donor contributed half the cost.

3 Conversely, many of those who did enter service from Ontario County were buried in American cemeteries overseas, or in other states and communities. The veterans of World War I began dying in large numbers during the 1960s. While the last American veteran of the war died in 2011, it is not known when the last veteran of the First World War died in Ontario County. 4 A few sources of public information are listed for each veteran whose grave is identified on this list. While many of the veterans of World War I eventually had their records recorded by the County Clerk, those records are closed to all but family members, Court House Monument funeral directors, or veterans service officers in accordance with the provisions of a law passed in However, a great deal of information may be found in newspaper accounts and other historical collections that are not closed by law. Many records from the state archives are available on the commercial website, Ancestry.com. A useful on-line source for the grave sites of other veterans may be the National Gravesite Locator of the US Department of Veterans Affairs (National Cemetery Administration). That site can be accessed on the Internet at: The site is primarily for locating veterans buried in National Cemeteries, however. With few noted exceptions, this list of World War I veterans and their grave sites does not include those who served in the state guard (not on federal active duty), or with the Red Cross or other civilian, religious or other charitable agencies. This list does include those who served with other Allied forces such as Great Britain, Canada, Italy, or France. Where they are known, the graves of soldiers buried overseas is included together with veterans who were known to have lived some time in Ontario County, but are now buried outside the county.

4 During the war, those killed in action, or those who died of wounds or disease, were quickly buried overseas. In 1921, the families of those men (no local women were known to be affected) were given the option of having the men reinterred in the US. Most families had their family members repatriated; a few did not. The following is an inventory of the Ontario County service men that died in World War I and remain overseas. A good summary can be found in Costance Potter s article, World War I Gold Star Mothers Pilgrimages, Part I, published in Prologue: The Journal of the National Archives. Vol. 31. Summer The article can be found on the Internet at: (May 17, 2015) The American Battle Monuments Commission was established by the Congress in An agency of the executive branch of the federal government, it has the mission of maintaining overseas American cemeteries and memorials to honor the service, achievements and sacrifice of members of the US Armed Forces.
