The Spanish American War Centennial Website has begun an effort to record the gravesite data and grave locations of Spanish American War Veterans. The data is being compiled by state.
If you care to begin a grave recording project in your area or simply add to one of the pages already being compiled, we would welcome your contribution of information. If you simpy want to contribute the data on a single preson, and we have no page for your state yet, please submit the data and we'll start a new page. Please send all data recorded to us in the format provided below (Note the use of capital letters for the name and also note that not all of this data is available on each grave stone. Provide only the data available, place it in the proper location in the format below and email it to us).
Please remember that we can only accept information that has been verified in the field. Also, please do not email us genealogical questions. We cannot help you in this regard other than direct you to our page on Researching a Spanish American War veteran.
The format for submitted data:
LAST NAME, FIRST NAME, rank
Regiment, Company (Birth date - Death date) (Cemetery Name, Town, County, State)
Here's an example:
McSHERRY, WILLARD, Pvt.
4th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, Co. L (1877-1899) (Greenwood Cemetery, Lancaster, Lancaster Co., PA)
ALSO...please be sure to provide your name in your email, so that
we can credit you for your help!
