Hi. I am William "Woody" Forrest. My wife is Dawn. My wife is our family's genealogist. Some years ago she found a relative of mine that had been KIA during WWI. His name is Chauncey R. Frank and he was the last American to be brought back from France for burial in the US.
Since then I've become an avid amateur historian of all that is the 91st Division during World War I. My wife's genealogy research skills and talents have come in handy.
We have amassed a large amount of information about those who served with the 91st Division. Some people have been harder than others to track down but I am on a mission.
I hope to "tell their story" here on Find A Grave. Dawn and I can't do it alone and hope to find others who share our love of 91st Division history (me) and genealogy (Dawn).
Thank you, Woody and Dawn
What I'm Working On: January 2016

Adding biographies, obituaries and photos
Looking to add ALL persons who served in the 91st Division during World War I. If you know of any or find one while out in the cemeteries; please let me know.
Information The 91st Division in WW I was part of the American Expeditionary Forces or A.E.F. and was formed in 1917. It was initially comprised of men from Draft Region 16 which were the states of California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Men from the Territory of Alaska were also included. The officers were drawn from Regular Army and Reserve Army units. They trained at American Lake in Washington until their new camp--Camp Lewis was built for them. Camp Lewis became Ft Lewis. Once in France, men from other divisions were transferred in to the 91st.

P Levien My objection was only to the military ranking placed before the name not any other corrections. I have had too many military folks angry at my placing the rank first so I am trying to help keep it from any more. " Deceased persons are referred to by just their NAME ... honorifics, ranks, courtesy titles, and post-nominal abbreviations which are parts of a person's name at various times during their lives -- are not included as part of the names of the deceased. Roles and ranks they held during their lives are listed afterwards. Military tombstones in military cemeteries are just NAME followed by rank and branch of service. "Retired" is not included. It was pertinent when the person was living and necessary to note that the person was not on active duty. So, in the correct style it would be: John Patrick Delaney Colonel USAF Or: H.E. Copper CW4 USA Be safe, Carolyn
