* Pfc Isaac Davenport (1895-1918) was previously listed but has been removed from the list. Isaac was a fisherman born, raised, and living in Northern Virginia at the time of the WWI Draft. He registered while in Southport, NC, but it appears that his only connection to Brunswick County was his location during the draft registration. When he was called to duty, his address was Baltimore, MD. He died of disease during the war and is buried in Brookwood American Cemetery in England. His headstone there shows Maryland as his residence. Pfc Davenport was also honored in Soldiers of the Great War, Vol. I in the Maryland section.
