Illinois State Archives - 1929 Illinois Roll of Honor-Soldiers from Calhoun County

divider for new section

This database indexes the 1929 publication, Roll of Honor, which contains the locations of the burial places of soldiers, sailors, marines, and army nurses who served in any of the wars of the United States and are buried in Illinois. The database contains more than 72,000 names. The General Assembly mandated in 1927 and 1929 that Illinois publish the Roll of Honor as an aid to patriotic and veteran organizations honoring deceased veterans on Memorial Day. The Grand Army of the Republic, United Spanish-American War Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans of the World War, and the 33rd Division War Veterans Association were among the various organizations that gathered the information.

The database was created and donated to the Illinois State Archives by Fred Delap of Kansas, Illinois. Delap, a volunteer with the Edgar County Genealogical Society, has also indexed the names of Illinois veterans of the War of 1812, Winnebago War, Black Hawk War, Mexican War, Civil War, and Spanish-American War.
