Scroll Down for the Photos & Surname Finder
WELCOME This index provides the names found on the brass plaques of the four-sided WWI Veterans’ Memorial in Janesville, Wisconsin. This granite memorial stands over eight feet tall and is located near the northwest corner of Franklin and West Milwaukee Streets in downtown Janesville. This index contains nearly 1,000 names of service men and women and indicates those who died in the service of their county.
HINTS FOR SEARCHING NAMES IN THIS INDEX The names on the actual memorial’s four brass plaques are generally (but imperfectly) alphabetized by last name; late additions sometimes appear out of order. This index is re-alphabetized correctly for ease of use. Given names (first names) are abbreviated inconsistently, both with and without middle initials (for example, Joe, Jos. and Joseph all appear in the memorial).
SOURCE INFORMATION The information in this index was transcribed from high resolution photographs taken in July, 2011 by Rock County Genealogical Society member David Bradford on August 14, 2011. (Copyright 2011 by RCGS).
HOW TO USE THIS INDEX This Index is an indication of military service between 1914 and 1919. Researchers should use this WWI Veterans’ Index to pursue further proofs of service.
HOW CAN I OBTAIN ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT VETERANS FROM THIS INDEX? Additional research can be conducted personally from archives within the Rock County Historical Society, located at 933 Mineral Point Ave. (the corner of N. Jackson St. and Mineral Point Ave.) in the Wilson King Stone House building adjacent to the Tallman House Restoration in Janesville, Wisconsin. Genealogically relevant documents may be reviewed there or you may request copies or abstracted information from the Rock County Genealogical Society librarian at RCGS.Library@gmail.com.
