”Mr. McClain says of the mortuary list, the Allen County honor roll of men who died in the military or naval service, that especial care was taken in compiling it; every newspaper in Allen County was requested to lend assistance, and the William Paul Gallagher Post of the American Legion was appealed to in the matter. He also commends Mrs. Irene Mills Jackson, executive secretary of the Home Service Bureau of the American Red Cross, and Mrs. James Pillars, secretary of the Allen County Historical and Archeological Society, for their activities in securing the mortuary list, as well as other efficient service.
The military and naval list follows—the flower of Allen County citizenship who volunteered to ‘make the world safe for democracy’:
List compiled by Elmer McClain.
