World War I Deaths - P-Z


Contributed by Richard M. Reese



Copies of the list of names of the men of from Luzerne County who lost their lives in the service of their country during the recent war, have been received by the local army recruiting office and the officials of the American Legion. The list will be revised from time to time until finally complete in every detail. The present list contains 245 names of Luzerne County men who died in army service. Certificates of esteem and gratitude of the French Republic have been mailed to the next of kin by the United States War Department. Because of the tremendous task some names may have been overlooked. In such Instances, relatives should communicate with Capt. Neil Crissman, Coal Exchange Building, city, who will see that those entitled to certificates receive them. The diplomas are for officers, enlisted men, field clerks and nurses of the army only. The navy and marine corps certificates are being distributed by their respective departments. Men who died as a result of their own misconduct and men who gave the name of a friend or business associate as the person to be notified in the event of death have not had certificates prepared for them. The War Department is endeavoring to determine the next of kin of the latter class. Following is a list of names of Luzerne County soldiers who died during the world war as sent to the army recruiting office: - Wilkes-Barre Record, Feb. 28, 1920
