Information regarding the veterans with unknown cemetery locations shown above.
Contact Friends of Fort Caswell Rifle Range if you have any information regarding their gravesites.

Pvt David Williams – died overseas. Remains were returned in 1921. His widow, Florence Marie Williams, teacher at Brunswick County Training School in Southport, was buried in Greer Cemetery in Bolivia, so perhaps David was buried there also. David’s son, David Jesse Williams, is buried in Kinston, NC.

Pvt Fred Wilson – died overseas. No records found indicating his remains were returned. No records found in American cemeteries in Europe. His father’s death certificate [Jackson Wilson (1848-1921)] indicates he was buried in Fairmont Cemetery in Robeson County, NC.
