PLEASE list name AND cemetery in the subject line, along with the word "Findagrave" when you e-mail us (otherwise it may get deleted due to virus and spam protection)!

I am more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials.

ALL REQUESTS FOR corrections, additional information, or transfers: PLEASE do so with the Suggest A Correction link on the memorial for that person.

Happy cousin/family hunting ... Kit & Morgan.

Foster Vandevander
Per the West Virginia History and Culture website, theh Veterans Database, Foster Vandevander died on October 14, 1918 in Vaubecourt, France of pneumonia. This is substantiated by The Soldiers of the Great War, Vol. III, p.411, which indicates that he died of disease. He was not named as having been killed in action.

Thank you.
