Knights of Columbus Members in the Great War

Jefferson County, NY

These men were members of Jefferson County Knights of Columbus councils who'd been in service in World War I. It's unknown if they were all members at the time of entering service, or if listings included veterans who had joined the organization within a couple of years after the war. What we do know is that they were all Roman Catholic. At the time, Jefferson County had three councils, located in Watertown, Carthage and Clayton. These three councils are still in existence, and a brief online search turned up that there are several more councils in the county today.
NOTE: The site coordinator has no information about the men or the local councils. All spellings are as given in the original book.



"Below, without any designation of rank - be they officers or enlisted men, is presented the roster of the Knights who served with their country's colors in the war. ... But whether in the trenches, on the seas, or in the camps at home, all did their duty.
