Lest we to forget these "pioneer Soldiers" who fought and some gave their lives that our forefathers could work the virgin soil and their wives could carry on the household chores without fear of the marauding Indidnas, an effort has bee nmade to make a Roll of Honor of the veterans of the War of 1812 and the Blackhawk War who are buried in Carroll County.

This Roll of Honor is offered as Secondary Information only !!! It is a known fact that there will be errors because of the scarcity of permanent records, lack of education to keep records and the early dates of these wars. Nothing has been authenticated except the dates on the grave-stones and the burial places.
